Things to know when buying online or by phone 

  • Customers must use Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Some debit cards work if they can be used without a PIN. Licenses are mailed within 24 hours of the purchase.

  • In most cases, licenses purchased online or over the phone will reach you by mail within 10 days or you may pick up your license at a license agent location or Colorado Parks and Wildlife office.

  • A temporary authorization number (TAN) may be substituted for the license(s) purchased for 14 days from the date of purchase. Please print or write down (must be legible) the TAN and carry it with you while fishing until you receive your license. If the license OR all of the licenses you purchase in this transaction expire in less than 7 days, you will NOT receive anything in the mail. A temporary authorization number (TAN) is all you need for 1 or 5 day fishing licenses. 

  • Sign your license when you receive it to validate it.

  • Telephone sales representatives are trained to sell licenses and do not know specific wildlife-related information for Colorado. For questions not related to the sale of licenses, call Colorado Parks and Wildlife at 303-297-1192.
