-- Thousands of big game hunting licenses that did not sell during the license application and draw process go on sale 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 are available, more than 120 leftover fall turkey licenses also go on sale.
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.
Online purchasing of leftover licenses is delayed by one day to keep distribution fair. Internet sales of leftover licenses does not begin until Wednesday, Aug. 10.
Hunters can find a list of wildlife offices online.

License purchasers who live out of state or are unable to get to a license agent can call the toll-free license sales line at (877)244-5613 beginning at 9 a.m. Aug. 9.
