Colorado's Elk OTC Tags Now Available
Colorado is home to the largest elk herd in all of North America. There are 283,000 elk, and 23 million acres of public land to house these majestic animals. Monday July 12th over-the-counter tags went on sale. Colorado offers unlimited bull elk tags for residents and non-residents. In some units, archery hunters can get a bull elk tag and an antlerless elk tag. The over-the-counter elk tags are good for archery season and the second and third rifle seasons in most units. Over-the-counter tags were used on more than half of last year's harvest of bull elk. Colorado offers elk seasons starting in August and even into January in some areas.
Hunters with questions about what licenses they can purchase and where licenses are valid can find more information on-line or by phone with one of the new Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hunt Planners at (303) 291-PLAN or (303) 291-7526. Hunt planners are hunters themselves and well versed in the opportunities available around the state.From Summit County Citizens Voice.
