I would not go by what is reportedly strained from verbal words taken from an individual, even if that individual is a DOW Director of Law Enforcement. The Colorado Revised Statutes specifically state that in Colorado a current CCW is required to carry a firearm concealed in this state. Concealed and open-carry can further be restricted by municipality. I'm not saying I agree with it, just stating the law. If you were to get cited for carrying a sidearm concealed without the required permit then don't think for one second that the LE Director for the DoW is going to come to your defence and testify on your behalf, because he/she will definetly not. In court they go by what is written in the law, regardless of the direction the prosecutor wants to go when presenting his/her case to a jury.
It is each hunter's and gun owner's own responsibility to research these laws on their own behalf. Don't just go by what you are told from others on the internet. It's okay to ask where to find this stuff or ask to be pointed in the right direction, but I'd be cautious with some of the specific answers you may get from people on the internet, even though I think the crowd here in BGH is a pretty good well intended crowd. Do your own homework, research it yourself. I know it's too easy to throw a question out there hoping that someone will do the research for you, but that's just being lazy. Know the law, keep updated on the law, that way you can avoid trouble. There are much more further rules and regs that exisit in print besides what is vaugely and briefly listed in the hunting brochures. Those dow hunting brochures are barely a skeleton of what exists in the state hunting rules and laws. If you own a gun, knowing both "safe handling" and the "gun laws" should be foremost on your mind before anything else. I won't do all the research for you, but click on this link to get pointed in the right direction. Hope this helps. Good luck!!
