Hunting in Colorado

Hunting is really a way of life for many Coloradans, and with more than 23 million acres of public land, we have plenty of opportunities for all types of hunters. Be advised you need to research license requirements for all hunting in this state.

Big game, of course, is found in our high country, and outfitters with experienced guides can provide you with the best hunt of your life. Small game and birds are abundant on our eastern plains. Turkey hunting is a skill unto itself; check for season, regions and license requirements. Waterfowl include geese, duck and coot and are hunted according to season flyways and zones. Colorado Parks and Wildlife, outfitters and sporting goods outlets are all good sources for additional information.
