Colorado law requires that anyone born on or after January 1, 1949, complete an approved hunter education course before applying for or buying a Colorado hunting license. Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Courses, led by certified volunteer hunter education instructors and/or CPW staff, are offered throughout the state year round.
The Hunter Outreach Program teaches novice and inexperienced hunters—of all ages—the knowledge, skills, ethics, and traditions of hunting. Through workshops, clinics, seminars, and educational hunts, the program appeals to diverse interests, backgrounds, and levels of ability. These special programs can help you make the most of your hunting pursuits, or help you take through the first steps toward becoming a part of our shared hunting heritage and tradition.
