Here is a little reminder for those of you that are headed out west here to Colorado, and Utah for the hunting seasons and are planning on taking a grouse or two while hunting. You are required to have a HIP number written on your license before you begin your hunt. If you are planning on it then just do a search for the state where you are going to be hunting and HIP number in the search. It only takes a couple of minutes and may save you a few dollars if you get checked with a bird in your position and no HIP number.
Also Colorado small game season starts Saturday September 1.
