Colorado Elk Preference point Hunter Education Number

Hoping to get some quick help from someone who has went through the Colorado application process.


So I am filling out my application to get a Colorado elk preference point. It is asking for a Hunter Education Number. I have my card, got it in 1990, but there is not a Hunter Education Number. Only a date and a number that signifies area or region.


Is that the number that I use in the application? Seems like everyone that took the course when and where I did will have the same number.


Thanks

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

I have always put the instructor # on my card.
My wife's card doesn't have instructor #, so we put district #.
Never had problem with either.

Thanks.


I just had a buddy of mine respond and he uses his initials and the 8 characters of the date. I guess it must not matter.

Email your regional game commission office. I had the same question last year and they responded very quick with an actual Hunter education number.

I don't know your scoop if your just doing points then going out this fall and buying over the counter or what have ya. My first trip to Co. was around 2008 and at 48 I sure could not find my card from 1971 or the agency I got it from. Then I had to and take it over for my hunt. The following year it was suggested to me and I acted upon it was to go to the local DOW office out there and register. I registered my hunter safety card that day in 2009 with the state of Co. and never have to take it back with me.

On Hunter Ed cards that do not have a student #, the accepted method by Colorado Parks & Wildlife is to put down the date on the card as your student #. For example, if your card is dated August 10, 1990, your student # would be
08101990.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter the number. I had to purchase a card from the game commission to get a number. They could not give it to me over the phone.

As mentioned, if you contact PGC, you'll get what you need back very quickly.

For my CO app, I used my HTE instructor number, as that should document for them that I've had the training (since I had to take and pass the course to become an instructor... all of which is well documented.)
