If you wound any animal and don't recover it, your hunt may be over unless the outfitter determines it was nonlethal or for some reason was determined unrecoverable.
Note: Bull elk licenses are over the counter for 2nd and 3rd seasons.
If you were born on or after January 1, 1949, you must have a hunter education card or certificate before applying for or purchasing a license in Colorado.
