Colorado has some of the most diverse hunting opportunities in the west. The Centennial State’s unique topography provides everything from hunting the high country for Dusky Grouse and White-tailed Ptarmigan to hunting the eastern plains for Ring-necked pheasant, Scaled and Bobwhite quail, and Rio Grande Turkeys, not to mention the array of big game options.
Colorado is the only state that offers non-resident over the counter Elk tags. Meaning that anyone from out of state can travel to Colorado and purchase an unlimited over the counter elk hunting license. They don’t have to go through the timely process of a draw. That’s pretty cool and says something about Colorado’s elk populations… they are HEALTHY!
