5 Steps to the Hunt
If you intend to hunt small game (including migratory birds) in Colorado during the 2017/2018 season, you need a new
Harvest Information Program number.
The Harvest Information Program (HIP) will remain consistent for the 2017-18 seasons. Online sign ups will continue through the current Colorado HIP website due to unforeseen delays with the implementation of CPW’s new licensing system. Go to the HIP website or call 1-866-COLOHIP (265-6447) to begin the online registration process to obtain a new HIP number.
The 2017-18 HIP registration process is open. See the
news release for more information.
