Welcome to the Outfitter Homepage
The Office of Outfitters Registration registers and regulates individuals and entities that practice in the State of Colorado as Outfitters, defined as "the taking or attempted taking of wildlife" on land that an Outfitter does not own. Registration for Outfitters is mandatory in Colorado.
The Office does not issue hunting or fishing permits and does not regulate other outdoor activities on public land. Office activities include registration, investigation of complaints, determination of discipline, and enforcement of discipline for violators of the Colorado Statutes and the Office of Outfitters Registration Rules. The Office is a Director-model program with a five-member advisory committee comprised of registered outfitters, law enforcement, and a public member who provide recommendations to the Division Director.
The Office works with several state and federal agencies including Colorado Parks & Wildlife, the Bureau of Land Management, and the United States Forest Service in order to share vital information about unregistered outfitters and violations of other agency laws. The Office also works with the Colorado Outfitters Association (COA). For information regarding hunting and/or fishing licenses, please contact Colorado Parks & Wildlife at 303-297-1192.
Off-road and/or jeep tours are not governed by the Office. Please contact the Public Utilities Commission -Transportation section for more information.
