A huge family commitment has ended, so I am finally free to do some hunting....Is it too late to get a cow elk tag over the counter? I (as of now) am looking just for a meat hunt.

Any tips, suggestions, referrals, ect, would be <span style="font-style: italic">greatly</span> appreciated!

Thank you,

Jordan

    Jordan,

    Over the counter cow tags here in Colorado are usually leftover from the draw.They are sold on a first come type basis.So there is a cap on the ammount that are sold.Also they are unit specific! Meaning if you buy one it isn't valid in any unit in the state.

    When are you thinking about going? There are a total of 4 elk seasons here not counting special hunts/seasons etc.I can give you some info as far as units that might be a decent place to start if your interested.
