Thousands of big game hunting licenses that did not sell during the license application and draw process will go on sale to the public at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 9 at wildlife offices and Colorado Parks and Wildlife license retailers statewide.

In addition to the approximately 37,000 elk licenses, 7,300 deer licenses and 7,200 pronghorn licenses that will be available, more than 120 leftover fall turkey licenses will also go on sale to the public that morning.

Leftover license day is one of the biggest one-on-one sales days for wildlife offices. Long lines for some of the more sought-after licenses begin forming early at many wildlife offices. Hunters can find a list of wildlife offices and license retailers on the wildlife side of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.

"In the past, we had people camping out at our offices to get the first spots in line," said Henrietta Turner, wildlife license administration manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "Things are less crowded since people can now go to sporting goods stores and other license agents or buy licenses over the phone."

License purchasers who are out of state or unable to get to a license agent can call the toll-free license sales number, 1-877-244-5613, beginning at 9 a.m. on Aug. 9. It is important to note that online purchasing of leftover licenses is delayed by one day to keep distribution fair. Internet sales of leftover licenses do not begin until Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Hunters planning to purchase a leftover license should come prepared with their driver's license, hunter education card and social security number (required under state law). Hunters interested in purchasing private-land-only licenses must obtain permission from landowners before they can hunt on private land.
