As soon as you have
purchased the hunt, we recommend that you purchase your hunting
license either online or by mail from the Colorado Division of
www.wildlife.state.co.us. You can still purchase a
license over the counter for 2nd and 3rd seasons when you arrive
in Colorado. We encourage everyone to take time to prepare
physically for the hunt. It will allow you to cover more
territory (we have access to over 56.000 acres) and increase your
chances of success.
