Colorado Hunting Summary

Colorado has hunting seasons for many big game species including Bighorn Sheep, Moose, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Black Bear, and Mountain Lion. While most Big Game licenses are allocated by the Draw, over-the-counter bull elk licenses are available during 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons. Colorado is the only state that offers over-the-counter bull elk tags. Over-the-counter archery elk and pronghorn licenses are also available. Finding a professional, experienced big game outfitter will go a long way towards having a safe and successful hunt. A hunter safety card is required if born on or after Jan. 1, 1949.

When most people think of Colorado, they think big game. However, Colorado boasts excellent pheasant hunting as well as quail hunting, chuckar and partridge hunting. Colorado wild turkey hunting consists of the Eastern sub-species in the plains, primarily along river drainages, and the Merriam sub-species in mountainous areas.
