The only state that I know of with a January 31 deadline is Wyoming for their non resident elk tags. All the other are just getting ready to start then except for Arizona.
Arizona's deadline for elk and pronghorn is February 12
Utah's goes from February 1 to March 3 I believe.
Colorado's start in mid February and ends the first week in April.
Montana's dead line is March 15.
Ok, Arizona elk app is in. Wyoming antelope app is in, got lots more to go.... Probably spread out the Colorado damage between February, March and April paychecks for the $250 whacks of sheep, goat and moose.
