Over-the-counter big game licenses available July 13

Over-the-counter, with-caps licenses for elk and bear will be available starting at 9 a.m., July 13 at Colorado Division of Wildlife offices, license agent businesses, by phone and on-line.

New for the 2010 season are elk licenses specific for Game Management Unit 54 in the Gunnison Basin. These licenses are available for purchase over-the-counter, but with caps on the number available. There will be 500 either-sex licenses available on first-come first-served basis. General over-the-counter bull tags are no longer valid in Unit 54 during second season.

Hunters who wish to hunt in this unit during second season are advised to buy their licenses well before the start of the season.

Cow elk over-the-counter with-caps licenses also are available in Game Management Units 25 and 26. These units are located north of Interstate 70, between Gypsum and Yampa.

Anyone who wants to hunt bears during the regular rifle season must hold a deer or an elk tag for the same manner of take, the same season and the same unit in which bear will be hunted. To properly manage bear harvest, all bear licenses for Colorado are area specific and limited in quantity.

To buy a license by phone, call (800) 244-5613, or go the DOW’s website at: http://wildlife.state.co.us/ShopDOW/AppsAndLicenses.

Leftover licenses for all of Colorado go on sale Aug. 10. For more information, go to http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/BigGame/Leftovers/.
