Leftover hunting licenses go on sale Aug. 11
All leftover big game and turkey hunting licenses will go on sale Aug. 11, the Colorado Division of Wildlife announced this week.
Leftover licenses are limited elk, deer, pronghorn, bear and turkey licenses that did not sell during the spring drawing and application process.
"There are a good variety of licenses this year," said Henrietta Turner, DOW license administration manager.
"We have over 9,000 deer, 3,000 pronghorn and over 42,000 elk licenses still available."
Hunters may purchase leftover licenses on a first-come, first-served basis at statewide license agents, Division of Wildlife offices and by telephone (800)
Online purchases will be available at 8 a.m. Aug. 12 on the Division of Wildlife Web site. Internet sales are postponed one day to eliminate competition with in-person sales.
Hunters in Southwest Colorado are reminded that more than 500 doe tags will be available in Game Management Units 72 and 711 in the Cortez area. The extra tags have been made available by the Division of Wildlife in an effort to reduce game damage in sunflower fields on farms in Montezuma, Dolores and San Miguel counties. The special season dates are Sept. 1-30.
Limited licenses are valid only in specific game management units (GMUs) and are available to resident and nonresident hunters.

Florida counties developing bike trail
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Five Florida counties are pitching in to develop a 260-mile bicycle trail through northeastern and central Florida.
Volusia, Flagler, Brevard, Putnam and St. Johns counties are involved in the St. Johns River-to-the-Sea Loop, a 260-mile bicycle trail. It would be the longest bicycle loop in Florida.
More than 40 miles have been completed for the project that was launched in February 2008. State and county officials hope to finish the project by 2013.
