Left over tags(CO)

Can I purchase a left over cow tag for 3rd season rifle if I had a 1st season tag and didn't bag anything? Or am I done for the year?

I had a B list Archery cow

I had a B list Archery cow Elk tag, and an A list either sex elk rifle tag.  I didn't fill either.

no

You can have two tags generally.  A list A and a List B, or two List Bs.  Has nothing to do with whether or not you filled, just how many chances you get.

Yep, two pretty much does it.

Yep, two pretty much does it. I had thought last year that I could have three as I was offered a landowner tag but even in that situation it was a definate no.

So my 1st rifle Either sex

So my 1st rifle Either sex tag and my Archery cow tag was my limit? 

I saw there was still some leftover cow tags in my unit and was hoping to get a second chance with the rifle in the snow.

How did you manage an Archery

How did you manage an Archery and 1st season elk tags? Was one of them private land?

List C tags

If you want to continue hunting you'll need to find a list C tag.  These are unlimited and it doesn't matter if you've had an A or B list tag.  These types of tags are generally special population control tags or ag damage control hunts and are hard to find out about in time to get a tag.  Sometimes the DOW will send out a press release informing the public of these tags.  

Best plan now is to look at hunting other big game besides elk or perhaps elk in another state beside Colorado.  I don't elk hunt much outside of Colorado so not too much help there.  

You can always start planning your hunt for next year too.  Only 350-ish days until the season starts!

I have a mulie tag for this

I have a mulie tag for this week.  Unfortunately I used all my vacation for the elk hunt.  I will give it a shot this weekend since it closes Sunday.  I may need snowshoes at this point with this snowing thats being dumped.
