Use the off-season to improve shooting skills, raise your fitness levels and make sure that you are prepared to take advantage of some great hunting opportunities. Michaela Modlish proudly poses with a bull elk harvested in on a reissued muzzleloader tag. While the deer license options are not as plentiful as elk, there will be some leftover options available in August.
Cory says that information is only for Law Enforcement use, more BS of lies are here also, we were never told it was for law enforcement only. Love at First Site: After 30 minutes of trying online, I went to the actual CPW office. Mule deer in the mountains, whitetail on the plains or the legendary elk of the Rockies — these are only some of many species that call Colorado home. Find your way to three refreshing Pagosa Springs waterfalls. They even had their preferred way of contacting them was by phone. If you're looking to escape city life — or just everyday life — look no further than Colorado campgrounds.
The leftover draw option gives you first crack at the remaining limited deer licenses. One option is to prepare for leftover day.
For , leftover limited deer licenses will go on sale at 9 a. And if history is any indicator, deer licenses will be gone quickly, so be ready with your hunt codes at 9 a.
Your second option is to keep an eye on the leftover and reissue list. The reissue of big game limited licenses will begin on August 14, And the hunt codes will randomly be placed on the current leftover and leftover OTC with cap lists on Tuesdays through Fridays from 9 a.
These licenses are unlimited in number and go on sale starting at 9 a. The license is valid for hunting in 19 GMUs in the south central part of Colorado see map. While the season length is long, hunters are cautioned that whitetails are at low-density populations in this area and are found mostly on private land. White-tailed deer are commonly found along lower elevation river bottoms.
So hunters interested in obtaining an OTC Whitetail license should focus their efforts on locating a public land hunting location or obtaining private land permission before purchasing the license. Much like elk licenses, there are some outstanding archery options for pronghorn hunters. OTC pronghorn licenses are unlimited in number and they are available over the counter, starting at 9 a.
This OTC license is valid in more than GMUs see map below and provides plenty of opportunities to get out in the field. Pronghorn license will also be available on the leftover list. Again, the reissue of big game limited licenses will begin on August 14, Do you still have questions about applying for a big-game license?

I should have known better and just went there right away in the morning. I had the tag I wanted in my online cart and once I clicked Go To Cart it sat there and spun for 25 minutes.
Hopefully they can try and fix the online issues for next year. I faced the same issues online this morning. Tried to access the system within seconds of 9am. System appeared to get overloaded and crashed. With all due respect can you make this anymore confusing…. Wow technology is definitely created more confusion than it has helped… Sorry so negative but I feel like I need a class just to apply for one of these licenses….
They did not call the unfortunate hunter to advise him that he drew. Each hunter had a complete profile with phone number s.
They even had their preferred way of contacting them was by phone. Cory says that information is only for Law Enforcement use, more BS of lies are here also, we were never told it was for law enforcement only. So, who is lying the department documentation says nothing of the kind so again you get the Blue-Ribbon prize. You never ever note that it is for law enforcement. Possibly I should take mine out of my profile, because I provided it under false pretenses.
I have not authorized you to use it except for the reason that you requested it for license application issues.
Understandable there was a computer glitch. Even if you did send him an email you have no confirmation that he ever received it. No matter what it is your duty to contact not just try, you are the one responsible for the error, the hunter is not. Then if they did call in and you did have a record of them paying the application fees and appalling you still did not give them a license, it only makes sense in a Government operation where there is no customer satisfaction requirement and you get your paycheck each way no matter what you do.
Then you blow the hunter off by saying you can get it in the leftover sale. Yes, you will have the same chances as 75, other hunters, even though you already drew it once. Then the icing comes on the BS cake when at 9 am that fateful day of the leftover sale hunters that got screwed by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife at least once at this time take off work to be at home on their home computers and get their already earned license.
I think since he sicked Corey on me that Cory had his authority weather Bob was aware or not. I feel that his alignment with the hunters ranks and files is much, much to over rated. Can you tell me him and his people are doing what is best to manage the wildlife and there by manage the license application fairly and correctly?
I have 6 thousand hunters that disagree with his handling of this calamity of errors. Other states just laugh at Colorado Parks and Wildlife and how they make their decision and even more so execute them, that is poor in the industry. There was no effort to prevent this by breaking the traffic into 3 dates, Deer, the next week antelope followed by elk. If I would say you are all DumbAs?
The underlying point is this was all possible by a group that has no quality in their work nor care about the hunters because they get their paycheck each week either way. There is no independent group to oversee their actions. The hunters again pay the bills and again get shafted.
All I can do is agree with them because at least they are truthful, which with the Colorado Parks and wildlife everything they say their nose grows longer. If I have an ot c bull tag can I try for a cow tag in the leftover license? Doug Skinner August 6, 8: T White August 6, 9: Do you lose preference points when purchasing a leftover tag?
