A primary tool used in the management of Colorado’s big-game animals is a limit, or quota, on the number of licenses issued in most game management units (GMUs).

Preference points provide a mathematical advantage when applied to future drawings. Download the 2017 Colorado Outdoors Preference Point Issue (Online Edition).
