Colorado Division of Wildlife provides free hunting and fishing licenses to all disabled veterans that are 60% or more disabled through the VA. Those desiring a hunting license must attend a hunter safety course prior. Those interested in obtaining an application can contact the CDW by double clicking on the link provided.

Those ineligible for this program can receive a free fishing license through the Social Security Administration. Proof of permanent disability must be provided through doctor’s verification. This can also be obtained through the CDW.
