First time Elk hunt in CO

I just got my first elk tag in CO (2nd rifle GMU 8).

My question is, if I fill my tag, do I have to check the elk in somewhere? I can't seem to find it in the hunting guide. That was the procedure when I hunted in other states.

Thanks.

No, not unless they have one set-up and you are passing. Then they sure expect you to stop.

I believe you only have to check: (but to not rely on me):

Moose
Bobcat
Lynx
Sheep
Lion (?)

I will add that even if you do not have a bagged animal, stop at a check station!

A couple of years ago my buddy thought he did not have to stop since he had no animal. Well they sure thought he was hiding something and tore through his gear with a fine tooth comb just to make a point I think Shame on You!

They WILL NOT pack it back up for you either!
