The Colorado Division of Wildlife reminds young pronghorn hunters who were unsuccessful that a "second chance" hunt is open to them in December. The second chance to hunt is only available to youth hunters 12-17, and only in 21 units located in southeast part of the state where pronghorn herds are over objective.

"This is a great opportunity for young hunters and will help us achieve our population objectives," said Dan Prenzlow, DOW Southeast Regional Manager. "Young hunters, age 12-17, may hunt again in December if they did not harvest a pronghorn during the October season."

The opportunity to hunt again is only available to youth hunters with unfilled doe or either-sex pronghorn licenses. Youth with unfilled pronghorn buck licenses are not eligible.

Youth with unfilled pronghorn tags can hunt again in any of the following units: 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 118, 119, 123, 124, 125, 126, 128, 129, 133, 134, 135, 140, 141, 142, and 147.

Youths with unfilled doe licenses are automatically eligible for a second chance hunt. Youths with an unfilled either-sex pronghorn licenses must bring their license to a DOW office and get it converted to a doe license before hunting again in December.

The late pronghorn season dates are Dec 5-9.
