Colorado Outdoors Magazine

Since 1938, Colorado Outdoors has been the official magazine of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Although the look of this historic publication has changed a lot over the last 80 years, one thing has always remained the same: Colorado Outdoors is the essential magazine to help you “Live Life Outside.”

Whether you’re a hunter, angler or just someone who loves Colorado’s wildlife and wild places, Colorado Outdoors features a wealth of how-to and where-to information to help you plan your next outdoor adventure. Each issue features Colorado’s top hunting and fishing destinations, along with expert tips to help you have greater success in the field. You’ll find stories of record fish caught and even taller tales of the ones that got away; of bull elk and echoing bugles; of backcountry hunts that epitomize the adventure and essence of fair chase;  and stories of wild game that will feed your imagination and the hungry mouths around your dinner table.

For big-game hunters, the Colorado Outdoors annual “Preference Point Guide” will lead you through Colorado’s limited-license drawing — setting you up for success before the hunting season begins. In the annual “State Parks” edition, you’ll find helpful tips to explore Colorado’s amazing State Parks, which are home to breathtaking scenery and limitless outdoor recreation. The most popular edition of the magazine, the “Photography Issue,” offers an intimate look at some of Colorado’s most unique and cherished wildlife species. From bighorn sheep and moose to birds and endangered species, you’ll get an extreme close-up as captured by the world’s best nature photographers.

Best of all, Colorado Outdoors magazine is your guide to all things Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Take a virtual journey with our team of dedicated law enforcement and wildlife professionals as they conserve and protect Colorado’s natural resources. From poaching cases to in-depth research projects and on-the-ground wildlife management, Colorado Outdoors will keep you in the know.
