Antlerless OTC Elk tag Co

I would like to purchase an OTC archery anterless tag.  How do I go about this? When will they be available and what will I need, just a hunting license?  I have a brand new bow sittingin a case ready to use. 

Quest "smoke"

Carbon express arrows

Rage broadheads, may switch to fixed blades.

What unit are you looking

What unit are you looking at?  Most of the state is open to OTC either sex archery tags, but there is a number of units that offer OTC archery cow tags and most of them are open to OTC either sex tags.  With any OTC tags you can either buy them at the DOW website or at a license agent.

just go down to the DOW office or Wal Mart or wherever

Just go to any license agent.  You've already got that either sex license and deer license, so you should be on file.  Just tell them you want the antlerless archery OTC license and they'll ask for your driver's license or CID number.  So, bring your driver's license, your hunter safety card (if you go to a DOW office and show it off, you'll never have to show it again in the field), and your current license if you want.  All they really need is your driver's license though.

Edit to add they've been on sale since Tuesday.  Same with bear licenses if you want one that goes with either your first season elk or 2nd season deer.

I will be buying the same tag

I will be buying the same tag this year also.  I had a OTC cow tag for arechery season last year and had a 5 point bull walk to 25 yards of me and stand there broadside for what felt like 5 minurtes and he had no clue I was there.  The past two years I have a had a bull tag for rifle season.  If I have a repeat of last year I may have to think my plans out a bit more.  But as things go I would have a OTC either sex tag and not see a darn thing or atleast it would be a little spike that I cannot shoot.

Nice set-up you have there. 

Nice set-up you have there.  Hopefully, when you pick up the OTC tag, you are successful!

As Exbio and/or Critter said though, alot of the state has OTC either sex tags, so why not get one of those if they are available in the area you are hunting.  It would be hard looking at a nice 7 x 7 while you are only holding an antlerless tag... Whistling

Good luck!

he has an either sex tag already

He drew a 1st season either sex tag, so I suggested he get the antlerless OTC archery to force him to scout.

Either way, to force him to

Either way, to force him to scout, or just to hunt, it widens his possiblities if he gets an either sex tag.  At least that's the way I would go.

can't have both though

You can only have one either sex or bull tag here in Colorado.  So he'd have to get rid of the either sex rifle tag, which I'd rather use than an archery tag.  But that's just me.

Ah, didn't know that.  Makes sense, and I would also opt for the rifle... Wink
