Headed to Colorado in September for elk hunting. Would like to try to get a mule deer if possible and the opportunity presents itself. I know the draws are over already is there any other chance of getting a tag/permit for a mule deer or do I have to wait until next year ?

Think last year was the first year they did the secondary draw with that particular structure. They give preference to the youth in that draw and while you might have a shot with tags that have a number of tags offered, it was my experience last year that the majority of them went to youth hunters. Which I don't have a problem with, I say that to temper your expectations going into the secondary draw. It was worth the additional application fee for me

1st shot is July 5th Secondary Draw (applications start June 21) and then leftovers from Draws 1 & 2 go on sale on 8/2 at 9 am MST.

I believe there are no over the counter buck tags in CO, although I could be wrong. Doe maybe. 2nd draw is your best option like others already said. Good luck.
