COLORADO BHA TAG ALLOCATION OBSERVATIONS & INFORMATION
Colorado BHA Tag Allocation Observations & Information
This issue of resident vs. nonresident (and landowner) elk (and other) tag allocations has been a controversial issue in multiple Western states over the years, including Colorado. As a result, during May 2022 the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) North American Board adopted a policy statement on hunting license allocation.
In addition, during 2017 the Colorado BHA Executive Leadership Team/Board adopted a position statement on Big Game License Resident/Non-Resident Allocations. Since then, there has been much additional discussion and information made available related to tag allocations. Hence, the information below may be of interest/use currently and/or going forward:
- 2022 North American (BHA) Policy Statement: Hunting License Allocation.
- 2017 Position Statement (Colorado BHA): Big Game License Resident/Non-Resident Allocations (It’s acknowledged that some of the information in this Statement may now be dated).
- “The Secret to the Elk and Deer Tags in Colorado.” Public Land Jurisdiction: 3/24/22.
