Leftover big game hunting licenses will go on sale to the public on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 9 a.m., at Colorado Parks and Wildlife offices and more than 700 hunting license retailers statewide.
Leftover licenses are those limited licenses that did not sell during the annual license draw process.
With hunting applications being up by four percent this spring, there are fewer leftover licenses available than last year but hunters will still find plenty of opportunity. In addition to the approximately 33,000 elk licenses, 6,800 deer licenses and 3,800 pronghorn licenses that will be available, more than 1,500 bear licenses and 120 leftover fall turkey licenses will also go on sale to the public the morning of Aug. 6.
Hunters can find a list of wildlife offices and license retailers on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website. A complete list of leftover licenses is also available online.
License purchasers who are out of state or unable to get to a license agent can call the toll-free license sales number, 1-800-244-5613, beginning at 9 a.m. Aug. 6. To keep distribution fair, Internet sales of leftover licenses does not begin until 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7.blog comments powered by Disqus
