​​​​Auction & Raffle Regulations and Information 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is authorized by Statute C.R.S. 33-4-116 to issue 18 special Auction and Raffle big game licenses valid in any open unit with extended seasons. Statute C.R.S. 33-4-116(1)(B) states that a nonprofit organization directly involved in the conservation of wildlife in Colorado or the Division may be authorized by the commission to conduct the license auction or raffle. 

Statute C.R.S 33-4-116 and CPW Regulation #229 allow organizations to retain up to 25% of the gross proceeds of the auctions and raffles to cover costs and to fund projects of their choosing that benefit wildlife in Colorado. At least 75% of gross proceeds must be paid to CPW. Funds generated from the sale of these licenses are used for big game habitat enhancement, research, management, and education in Colorado. To distribute these funds, a Project Advisory Committee (PAC) reviews proposals and makes project funding recommendations for the CPW Director’s approval. The PAC is made up of representatives from each conservation organization with an auction or raffle license, the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and CPW. These 18 Auction and Raffle big game licenses generate an average gross of $592,000 per year and have generated more than $2.9 million in the last five years. In 2016, 24 projects totaling $437,000 in Auction and Raffle Funds were recommended for funding by the PAC and approved for funding by CPW Director Broscheid.

On November 17, 2016 the CPW Commission authorized awarding license contracts for 2017-2021 hunting seasons. The number of licenses available (18 in total) for each species and the conservation organizations awarded contracts for those licenses are listed in the table below along with information regarding auction dates and locations and raffle ticket and drawing information.
