Over the counter elk tags?

Does CO. still sell over the counter bull elk tags?
They did last time I went, in the Redstone area.
Thinking about going again and it is too late for draw hunts.

They do, only in certain GMU's of course. Go on to the Colorado Department of Wildlife site and I am sure you can find which units have over the counter tags. I usually put in for a cow tag and if I don't draw I just by an over the counter bull tag.

First season (elk only) are by draw as well as the later rifle seasons. The OTC bull tags are usually just for the second and third rifle seasons as well as general archery in non-draw units.

Don't forget leftover tags also. There are numerous areas that traditionally have tags left after the draw for first and 4th season. But cow tags also during the second and third OTC season.
