All you outdoor enthusiasts, here are some dates to be aware of concerning hunting season. Archery season begins on August 31st at approximately 6:32AM, and rifle season begins September 14that approximately 6:45AM. (Big game hunting hours are between a half hour before sunrise and a half hour after sunset. Had you thinking I was either super smart or psychic, right?) Also, hunters do not have to wear orange during archery season. Depending on where you backpack you may not want to wear any camo, and no matter where you backpack you definitely don’t want to wear any antler or antler-like headbands. Most BLM and USFS land is open to hunting while only some of State land is open to hunting. For more details on this and other hunting information visit the Colorado Parks and Wildlife site.
