Any person who voluntarily provides information that results in a person being charged with the illegal take or possession of big game or turkey may be awarded a preference point for the wildlife species of their choice or an over-the-counter license for the same species reported. As an alternative to the above reward options, and except as provided below, any person who voluntarily provides information that results in a person being charged with willful destruction of big game or turkey or assessment of a § 33-6-109(3.4), C.R.S., penalty may be awarded a limited license for the same species and unit reported.
a. In limited license units where less than 10 licenses (total) are allocated annually for all manners of take, only one reward license can be issued in any three year period.b. In limited license units where less than 20 licenses (total) are allocated annually for all methods of take, only one reward license may be issued per year.c. In limited license units where the reward license has already been issued the person may:1. wait until the next reward license in that unit is available, or2. select another limited license unit for which a reward license is available.d. If the violation(s) reported occurred within a game management unit, which is closed to hunting the species reported, the person may select another limited license unit for which a reward license is available.
If I’m not mistaken, Washington and Oregon are doing/ contemplating a similar program, pretty cool idea!One interesting aspect of the Colorado TIPS (Turn In Poachers) reward program in CO is that an RP can be awarded a preference point for the species of their choice. So if you turn in a turkey poacher you could be awarded a sheep point if that's what you want. There is a non-resident that used to be a resident that has 2 more weighted sheep points than the rest of the field.
