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.

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.
