2017 Colorado Rifle Seasons

by HunTac Gear Staff

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick reminder that the 2017 Big Game Seasons are just a few weeks away. I will be highlighting the States and Dates of these for you over the next weeks. I'll start with my favorite, Colorado. Please visit the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website for complete information and regulations. Don't forget Colorado requires 500 sq/in of blaze orange so be sure to get yourself an Orion Chest Rig before you head out to hunt.
