State law does not prevents a felon from obtaining a Colorado hunting license and no criminal background check is required.

But published reports say it is illegal for felons to possess the firearms or archery weapons needed to bring down an animal, and plenty of felons are doing it.

Officials say more than 300,000 hunting licenses are issued for big game in Colorado every year and the state cannot trace the number going to felons.
