License Application 101

A March snowstorm west of Gunnison catches a young Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep looking for salt on U.S. Highway 50.

Before you tackle that confusing IRS tax form, which is due April 15, you might want to practice answering multiple-choice questionnaires.

Like, say, on the 2014 Colorado Parks and Wildlife 2014 big-game hunting-license application.

After all, that miniscule tax refund can be eased knowing there’s an elk or two in your freezer for the coming winter.

If you’ve ever been stumped by the big-game license (sorry, we can’t help you with your taxes), Parks and Wildlife is offering a free License Application 101 class from 6 to 9 p.m.
March 25 at the Northwest Region Hunter Education Complex, 711 Independent Ave.

Agency personnel will offer useful tips and techniques and help answer questions about numerous topics, including preference points, Habitat Stamp and applying online.

The goal, according to customer-service representative Erin Serfoss, is to help sportsmen and women avoid some of the more common mistakes that can hold up a successful application.

“It may seem confusing at first, especially for someone doing this for the first time,” Serfoss said. “But most concerns can be easily addressed by asking one of us for a little guidance, and we urge everyone to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Space is limited and preregistration is required. Visit to reserve your spot.

Your taxes are entirely another matter.

The big-game application deadline for the limited license draw is April 1.


WHAT: Free Parks and Wildlife class titled License Application 101.

WHEN: 6-9 p.m., March 25.

WHERE: Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Ave., Grand Junction.
