Leftover hunting tag sale is Tuesday

The annual Leftover Day for Colorado Parks and Wildlife hunting licenses is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Leftover Day, which is always the first Tuesday of August, is the day when CPW begins selling licenses that have gone through the draw process but still have a quota remaining. 

Licenses are offered on a first-come, first-served basis on Leftover Day.

In past years, lines of hunters have started before office doors open, but hopeful hunters may also avoid the crowds by purchasing their license online at cpwshop.com. Hunters also may purchase by phone at 800-244-5613, at CPW offices and parks, and CPW sales agents.

The 2019 Leftover List is available on CPW's website, allowing hunters to find the specific licenses they hope to purchase.

Free entry to Colorado parks Monday

In celebration of Colorado Day, and the 143rd birthday of the state, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will offer free entry to all 41 state parks on Monday.

Colorado Day was created by the state Legislature to mark the anniversary of statehood, granted in 1876 by President Ulysses S. Grant.

All other park fees, including camping reservations and fishing licenses, remain in effect.

This free entry day provides the perfect opportunity to experience Colorado's state parks.

Intersection becomes 4-way stop

The town of Palisade has added a four-way stop sign at the Third Street and Kluge Avenue intersection downtown.

The goal was to make the intersection safer and "alleviate close calls," according to a news release.

The Grand Valley Transit bus stop on Third Street in front of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce has also been relocated to a spot in front of Town Hall at 175 E. Third St. just east of its previous location.
