​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​NEW Draw Recap Report​s and Hunting Statistics

Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW) has developed a new and improved Draw Recap Report, which provides a wealth of information for hunters. For the first time, pre-draw and post-draw information, and license quotas have been combined into a single, easy to read layout. 

 

​Each report includes:

  • number of licenses available by hunt code
  • number of hunters that applied for each hunt code
  • number of hunters that successfully drew a license
  • preference-point information

The Draw Recap Report also shows how licenses were allocated among residents and nonresident, adults and youths, as well as landowners. The redesigned reports offer better transparency; providing hunters with the same information that Colorado Parks and Wildlife uses to manage the limited-license drawing.

draw recap reports​ glossary is available to help explain some of the terms you’ll find within the report. The draw recap walkthrough​ allows you to hover-over any field for an explanation of the data.​
