Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) will offer big game licenses for elk, pronghorn, bear, deer and turkey, to residents and nonresidents, beginning August 5th. This is the first time all big game licenses – leftover, over-the-counter with caps, and unlimited over-the-counter – will be for sale at the same time. Leftover licenses are what remain after the draw process for big game and turkey. The number of licenses available depends upon how many licenses remain after the draws for a particular hunt code. You can purchase your license in person at any licensing agent, online, or over the phone at 1(800) 244-5613. In addition to a current and valid photo ID, proof of residency and social security number, anyone buying a license must have a Hunter Education card, unless the hunter was born before January 1st, 1949.
