Colorado is a state that takes wildlife seriously. The state has many laws
regarding conduct outlined in its official statutes. Specifically, the
legislation in the Wildlife and Parks and Outdoor Recreation laws, Article
6 describe the general provisions of what is considered a punishable offense.
In total, these statutes define what prosecutors and state officials regard
as violations for improperly taking wildlife, carrying the wrong hunting
provisions, and using computer-assisted remote hunting. They also describe
the extent of punishment you could face if you are accused of violating
one of these hunting laws.
According to §33-6-103, if you are caught and convicted of violating
any hunting statutes, each violation shall “extend to and include
every part of such wildlife, and a
violation as to each animal or part thereof shall be a separate offense.”
Two or more offenses could be charged in the same complaint, information,
or indictment, and any proof as to part of an animal is sufficient to
sustain a charge as if you had the whole animal. If convicted, you could
also face hefty fines and a suspension of your license privileges.
