Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding hunters that the deadline to apply for fall turkey licenses is Thursday. Applications must be submitted online or postmarked by regular mail before midnight on July 14 in order to be included in the drawing for limited fall turkey licenses.
Instructions for applying for a license can be found on page 2 of the “2011 Colorado Turkey” brochure which is available at hunting license retailers or online at http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/Turkey/.
Fall turkey season begins Sept. 1 and runs through Oct. 2 west of Interstate 25 and Oct. 21 east of Interstate 25, except in game management unit 140 southeast of Trinidad. In addition to limited draw licenses, hunters can also purchase an unlimited, over-the-counter fall turkey license which is valid in more than 120 game management units. Over-the-counter licenses went on sale Tuesday, July 12.
