Leftover big game, turkey licenses on sale Aug. 11

The Colorado Division of Wildlife today announced that all “leftover” big game and turkey licenses will go on sale Aug. 11.

Leftover licenses are limited elk, deer, pronghorn, bear and turkey licenses that did not sell during the spring drawing/application process.

“There are a good variety of licenses this year,” said Henrietta Turner, DOW license administration manager. “We have over 9,000 deer, 3,000 pronghorn and over 42,000 elk licenses still available.”

Hunters may purchase leftover licenses on a first-come, first-served basis at statewide license agents, Division of Wildlife offices and by phone (1-800-244-5613).

Online purchases will be available at 8 a.m. Aug. 12, on the Division of Wildlife Web site. Internet sales are postponed one day to eliminate competition with in-person sales.

In order to expedite the purchase process, license buyers should bring the following items when visiting license agents or DOW offices: A driver’s license or state identification card, hunter education card, customer identification number or conservation certificate number and social security card.

Hunters purchasing private-land-only licenses (PLOs) must obtain permission from landowners before they can hunt on any private land.

Limited licenses are valid only in specific game management units (GMUs) and are available to resident and nonresident hunters.

A list of all available leftover licenses is now available on the Division’s Web site at
