Do I need to go to court for a Colorado hunting violation?

Your ticket or summons will list a court date.  You may pay the violation before that or you may go to your court date and talk with the officer or prosecutor about your case.  It is important to remember that they do not represent you and have no obligation to help you.  You may wish to have an attorney come with you to help represent your best interests.  Read More About Going To Court For Colorado Hunting Violations Here

Can I lose my hunting license if I get a hunting violation in Colorado?

It is a possibility, but not definite.  Colorado bases license revocation on a point system.  Accumulation of 20 or more points means you may lose your license anywhere from one year to life.  If you have been charged with violations that total close to, or more than 20 points, you should consider consulting with an attorney before pleading guilty or paying your ticket as it could mean losing your hunting license.  Read More About Colorado Hunting License Points Here

Citations received from Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers can range in severity from misdemeanors to felonies.

 Each ticket received should be carefully considered before just paying the fine and pleading guilty.  Often individuals have certain defenses available that they have every right to have heard before a judge.  This is especially important considering that conviction of, or pleading guilty to hunting tickets carries not only fines, but can result in losing your hunting license for life. We all make mistakes and an attorney can help you through the process of making it right.  

It is highly recommended that you consult with an attorney about your case before paying the fine stated on your ticket.

 Even if you simply take five minutes out of your day for a consultation and decide not to retain counsel, I guarantee you will feel better about your decision.  Through all of the cases of hunting or fishing violations that I have been hired on or consulted for, the one constant that I always hear is that my clients feel as though a weight has been lifted off their shoulders.  

You can find the Colorado hunting regulations here.  Additionally, Title 33 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, found here, deals with the penalties and definitions for hunting and fishing violations under state law.
