Obtaining HIP Numbers
If you intend to hunt small game (including migratory birds) in Colorado during the 2015/2016 season, you need a new Harvest Information Program number. 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 Harvest Information Program is designed to give wildlife managers a better handle on the number of birds and small game that are taken each year in their states. Basic informational questions will be asked about hunting; including how many birds were taken the previous season and what species will be hunted this year.
