Interested in learning to hunt? Colorado Parks and Wildlife, through the agency’s Hunter Outreach Program, is offering an opportunity for novice hunters across the state to learn responsible practices and skills directly from CPW experts.
If you are 12 years of age or older and want to hunt big or small game but don’t have anyone to show you how, here’s your chance to apply for an opportunity to be a part of critical wildlife management efforts into the future.
“What we’ve learned is that many people want to learn how to hunt but don’t have someone at home to show them how,” said NW Region Hunter Outreach Coordinator Kathleen Mawhinney. “That is why the Hunter Outreach Program is so valuable. Once they experience first-hand mentorship from CPW experts, they will be able to hunt safely and responsibly in the future.”
