CPW offers license application assistance at weekend seminars

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has changed up the system hunters use to apply for big game licenses this year, transitioning to a new online automated system.

Officials from CPW recognize that the new system might be confusing to some citizens, especially those with less experience with computers and newer forms of technology. As such the state agency is organizing a series of seminars to help hunters navigate the process.

“As the April 3 limited license application deadline draws near, hunters with questions or concerns about Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s new automated online licensing system can get help in a variety of ways, including asking questions over the phone visiting a local CPW office to receive personal guidance or getting information on CPW’s website,” reads a press release from the agency.

Additionally CPW has held a series of seminars across the northwestern part of the state wherein agency representatives provide one-on-one application assistance to those seeking help. One such seminar was already held in Granby on March 21 and a second will be held this Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Granby Library in the Study Room.

A third Grand County seminar will be held Sunday in Kremmling from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the CSU Extension Hall at the Kremmling Fair Grounds. Computers will be available at each seminar so hunters can go through the application process with the help of a CPW customer service representative.

This March’s seminars come on the heels of the introduction of the new license application system in January. According to agency officials the new setup is an “integrated online purchasing system” meant to “streamline the sale of all hunting and fishing licenses and required stamps, annual parks passes, camping reservations and merchandise,” according to CPW officials.

Representatives from the agency noted that while CPW recommends applying for licenses online applicants can still have the option of applying over the phone by calling 1-800-244-5613.
