RBC I Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding hunters that the application deadline for the 2015 limited license draw is April 7, and now is the time to start preparing.
Anyone who has questions or needs help with the process is invited to attend a “License and Application 101” class on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Northwest Region Hunter Education Complex, 711 Independent Ave. in Grand Junction.
Space is limited for the one-time class and pre-registration is required. Visit www.register-ed.com/events/ view/59277 to reserve your spot, or go to www.register-ed.com, click on “Colorado,” then click on “View Upcoming Events” next to “Colorado Outreach” and scroll down to “Licenses Application 101” in Grand Junction.
“One trend we have seen is an increase in the number of people filling in their applications online,” said Faye Hall, customer service representative in Grand Junction. “That has significantly cut down on the number of disqualified applications due to common mistakes. But, we know that a few people may not be comfortable with a computer, so this seminar is perfect for them.”
In addition to help and guidance with both paper and online applications, agency personnel will answer common questions about preference points, residency, Habitat Stamp requirements and Hunter Education status.
“The closer we get to the deadline, the more important it is to get the basic questions out of the way,” Hall said. “Save the hours before the deadline to make sure you fill out a complete and accurate application, whether online or on paper.”
Colorado Parks and Wildlife is always available to answer questions by phone, at any local CPW office or online at cpw.state.co.us.
