Be safe, sign up for hunter course today
That limited license application is due April 5, and you still haven’t earned your hunter safety card.
Don’t panic, the Colorado Division of Wildlife feels your pain.
March is loaded with hunter education classes statewide, making it easy to meet the state’s requirement that all prospective hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1949, possess a hunter education card.
“Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for people who need these classes to find one and complete one,” said Mark Cousins, the DOW hunter education coordinator.
You can even take Internet-based courses, although you’ll still need face-time with an instructor and the live-fire part of the course.
Don’t delay, though. That deadline is oh-so-close.
