2013-14 Colorado Fishing, Hunting Licenses Now on Sale

Colorado Parks & Wildlife

Colorado Parks and Wildlife hunting and fishing licenses are on sale now for the 2013-14 seasons at retail outlets, at parks and wildlife offices and on-line.

Anglers are reminded that they must have a new license by April 1.

Lion hunters also now have an extra month–through April–for hunting, but they must buy a new license on or after April 1. That license will be valid through March 31, 2014.

License buyers between the ages of 18-64 also must buy a $10 Colorado Habitat Stamp. Money collected from stamp purchases is used to preserve and protect wildlife habitat throughout the state.

A resident annual fishing license costs $26. Youngsters 15 and under are not required to purchase an annual license; however, if they plan to fish with a second line, they must buy a second-rod stamp for $5. Senior annual licenses for those 64 or older cost just $1.

A combination fishing-small game license is available for $41. A small-game license costs $21, but only $1.75 for those under 18.

Turkey season starts April 13. A resident license is $21 and just $11 for anyone under 18.  Remember that the deadline for applying for big game limited licenses is April 2.

Purchase of any hunting or fishing license also includes a search and rescue fee.
