The leftovers I'm talking about aren't the funky smelling pasta ensemble in the Rubbermaid container stuck back in the hinterlands of your refrigerator. I'm actually afraid to touch one container that's found its way to the rear of the fridge, but that's another story.
The leftovers I'm thinking about are hunting license leftovers for big game.
Drawings for premium and quota units are taking place across the country, especially in the West. Startlingly, some of these tags are left unsold after the first entry period giving you the opportunity to potentially put together a good hunt after you thought all doors had closed.
What? You already drew a good tag. Are you hankering for some more protein?
Many areas have leftover tags for antlerless critters as well. If you're heading west for a bull elk hunt it never hurts to have an extra cow tag in your pocket for that winter enchilada fix. Can you ever have enough elk meat?
Wyoming's leftovers go on sale in July, Colorado's go on sale in August, and South Dakota has leftovers in certain units up for grabs in September. These are just a few I know off the top of my head, but I think you get the point.
Embrace the leftovers and when you get done with your license research do a quick sweep of your refrigerator before it's too late.
Why are you looking at me like I'm a big enchilada?
