Wyoming and Colorado bowhunting

I was wondering if someone can tell me if residents in Colorado and Wyoming can bowhunt mule deer and elk every year or if they have to draw a permit. Any info is appreciated.

You can hunt every year in Colorado, but you have to draw a permit every year, which is possible in many units. Wyoming doesn't really do much for archery only licenses.

So I'm assuming Wyoming residents get a general deer or elk tag which is good for rifle or archery season? How hard are these to get?

Do not know if this will help you but we hunt in WY for antelope and draw rifle tags, then for archery you we buy a "archery stamp" to go along with our rifle tags. So with our rifle tags we can start hunting them with a bow and if we do not harvest we can still hunt them with a bow.

I think it is the same for elk and deer.

I'm actually not really sure what's up with Wyoming archery hunting. I guess it's just off the general tag, but with a special Archery license, which is good from September 1 onward for deer and elk, or August 15 for antelope.
