Re: Colorado over the counter tags?
You can do it online, and there are OTC bull tags in certain units. Some units are managed for trophy, some for opportunity. OTC tags tend to be in areas you will see few mature bulls but a lot of 4X4s. Read the regs, study up on those areas. Typically they will be 2nd rifle season or later. The elk run for private land and you have to intercept them.
I have never hunted there myself but researched in case I did not draw MT. Honestly even with an OTC tag and a little research, you would see more elk than I will in MT.
