Big-Game Hunters Hungry for ‘Leftovers’


Hunters seeking tags for either bucks or bulls, or simply a cow elk for the freezer, can look forward to an ample number of leftover big-game licenses for the 2014 seasons.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has approximately 6,000 deer, 30,000 elk, 5,000 pronghorn and 1,800 bear licenses available for the fall hunting seasons. Leftover licenses are surplus licenses that went unsold during the limited drawing.

For the first time ever, both leftover and over-the-counter (OTC) licenses go on sale the same day. In addition, hunters may purchase licenses online without having to wait an additional day as in years past.

All leftover and OTC licenses go on sale Aug. 5 at 9 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time. Licenses may be purchased at statewide license agents, Colorado Parks and Wildlife service centers, online or by calling 1-800-244-5613.

Lists of available leftover licenses and over-the-counter (with caps) licenses may be viewed HERE. The lists update every 15 minutes once the sales process begins Aug. 5.
