Let's Get Hunting in Colorado

Life is all about learning and gaining new experiences. Here in Colorado, there are tons of outdoor activities, and one of the most popular ones is hunting. In an effort to teach others the skill of hunting, CPW is encouraging experienced hunters to mentor a friend who has little to no experience hunting.

Mentors and mentees will submit a photo with a brief description of their hunting experience, making them eligible to win some really awesome prizes.

Take A Friend Hunting Contest Requirements

Registration for the Take A Friend Hunting contest is currently open until February 28, 2023. Prize drawings will be made by March 31, 2023.

To be eligible to enter:

  • Mentors must be at least 18 years of age or older at the time of entry and must hold a valid 2022 Colorado hunting license (the “hunting license”).
  • Mentors must have held a Colorado hunting license in at least 3 of the last 5 years (2017-2021).
  • Mentees must also be 18 or older at the time of entry and hold a valid 2022 Colorado hunting license.
  • Mentees must also either have:
    1. never had a hunting license until 2022,
    2. only had a hunting license in 2021 (e.g. a second-year hunter) or
    3. not had a hunting license in the past five consecutive years (i.e., since 2017).
  • Both individuals must follow rules and regulations in the 2022 Colorado Hunting Regulations; this includes possession of all appropriate licenses. Employees of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, their immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children), and household members of each such employee, are not eligible.
