    She can go with you on your hunt in Colorado and it will be fine! It's a lot better to have family and friends with you to enjoy the memories, even if they don't have a tag. Good luck!

    Say what? You have to have a license just to be on public land? The real question is....why would you even consider living in such a stupid place?
    No-one needs a license to step foot on public land in Colorado or anywhere else in the west. That's actually the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. You folks need to get around to getting those dumb laws changed. VOTE the fools that enacted those stupid laws out of office. Public land belongs to the public not to some bureaucrat that insists on dictating what you can and can't do or where you can or can't go.

    What is the reason for the law you cant be on public land without a license?? No laws like that out here! There may be a few on a nonhunter carrying a gun during an open season but thats is all.

    not sure of reason.few years ago use to hunt turkeys on a wma(wildlife management area).called the local game warden and asked him about bringing someone along that would just be watching,not calling or participating in any way.i was informed that no one without the proper lic. was not allowed on the wma during hunting season.

    On some state properties you must have a conservation passport to birdwatch or even use the area. The reason for this is that some areas cater to non consumptive users on the dime of hunters and fisherman. This was created to allow them to contribute to the areas like the hunters do

    As far as I know this doesn't apply to any federal property

    It doesn't apply to federal lands. We have something similar here on state owned wildlife management areas. You can go onto them if you have a wma license. It's only $20, so it's not a big deal. Anyone can buy a wma license, not just hunters. It's basically a trespass fee to help the state pay for the land use and employees who maintain roads, plant foodplots, pick up trash on campgrounds, maintain ponds and shooting ranges, etc. These lands are closed to all use from May 1st to September 1st and closed every Wednesday and Thursday from Sept 2nd to April 30th. The biologist told me they want it peaceful and stress free for the animals during the birthing and rearing months of late spring and early summer. I think it's about the employees during the rest of the year. I've never heard of someone not being able to call or even handle an animal on private land without a license. I don't think that is true. The guy who told you that is obviously just blowing smoke up your a$$ imo.
