It will be more expensive to hunt and fish in Colorado next year – especially if you live out of state. Campers and hikers will be paying more too. Starting Jan. 1, there will be varying increases to licenses and annual park passes.
Residential annual small-game and fishing licenses will each increase by $8 to $28 and $33, respectively. The same $8 increase is applied to deer, elk, bear and mountain lion hunting. But moose, goat and sheep are now $50 more – or $300 each.
