Coming to Colorado to Hunt Elk or Deer during the Rifle Seasons?
Some of the most frequent questions CPW receives from people planning to hunt big game in Colorado include:
- Am I able to refund/transfer/exchange my license?
- Why was I charged a fee for my Preference Point?
- I held an either sex or bull elk license for a previous season. Am I then able to purchase an over the counter bull elk license for the second or third rifle season as well?
- Can I carry a handgun with me while I am hunting?
For answers, see the Big Game Season FAQ. Check out the Plan Your Hunt page and Big Game Hunting Quick Guide for more helpful information.
