Left over tags (CO)

When do the left over tags come out?

I was told I can add a cow tag to my 2nd rifle mule deer tag, is this true? I have a list B elk tag which I have been drawn for.  I can also add an earchery tag?

4 elk tags sounds crazy to me.

August 9th

No you cannot have 4 elk tags.  Read page 23.  You can have two public land elk tags if one of them is list B.  

You do not have a list B tag.  You have a list A tag, your either sex 1st season tag.  To that you can add one list B tag, which is a cow tag.  So you could add either an unlimited antlerless archery tag, or a limited rifle cow tag, not both plus an OTC bull tag.

And there are leftovers for some of your 2nd season deer units. You could also add a doe tag.  So you can potentially have 3 tags for that hunt.

If you didn't already have that list A tag,  you could potentially have a buck and a doe tag, plus a 2nd season OTC bull tag, and a 2nd season cow tag.  That would be 4 tags, but not 4 elk tags.

Exbiologist, thanks again for

Exbiologist, thanks again for all the details.  I will most likely do the OTC elk archery tag for my unit so I am forced to get out before my rifle season.  If I decide not to go that route when would be the best time to pick up a cow elk for my 2nd season hunt? Is that something thAt will be available at all times or must I act fast when they come out?

be there or be square

August 9th 9am, at an out of the way license agent, not WalMart, the DOW, or Sportsman's Warehouse.  There are only a handful of tags left, so they won't make it to day two when you can buy them online.  They probably won't make it out of the first hour, if what's left even makes it out of the leftover draw, which you can't participate in.  

There are just 13 unit 371 2nd season cow tags left, no unit 2nd season 28/37 cow tags left and just 38 unit 2nd season 18/181 cow tags left.

You could try getting one of these tags, but if you fail, you can always add the OTC archery antlerless tag, which goes on sale in July.

Where is this info? I want to know about certain deer tags that are left over.

I already posted the buck deer leftovers

And it's only available from ME!    :lol:

Or you could learn to read between the lines of the drawing summary.  Whistling

It's not an official list.

Here's a partial list:http://www.biggamehunt.net/forum/colorado-leftover-license-lists

To me it seems funny that

To me it seems funny that most of the drawing are over now except for the leftover draw but it still takes until August to get thye list out.  So three weeks before bow season starts you can find out where you can get a leftover for if you did not draw.  Does not seem like a whiole lot of time to get a plan together and then to get some scouting done.  I have always wondered what takes so long to get the drawing done, release results and then let us now what is leftover.  Same goes true for letting us now they are gonna cuts tags in units after we have already applied.  I guess we are just at their mercy?

Should get the letter any day now...

Well I am expecting my left over letter in the next week or so, then you have like three weeks to turn it around, they then have the draw and post it, THEN they compile the NEW leftover license list and post it, ...THEN they are ready for Aug 9th! LOL!

 

Thanks for giving me first choice boys!
