View Full Version : Hmm are DOW slow to espond normally?

Hi All,

I sent in an question to the DOW web site asking about the Hunter Ed cards for folks from outside the US but after a couple of weeks no reply:rolleyes:

Is this usual when dealing with them?

At this rate I will be looking for another place to hunt rather than Colorado:(

I know CO offers a 1 day class that's good for that year only. I'm not sure how often they offer it, heck it might be every day for all I know.

Might want to ask one of the residents of Colorado, like Dan.

I know when I've sent the DOW email it normally takes them a few days to respond but never a week. Maybe ask them for a list of times/dats that they offer that 1 day class. I'm sure you can come over, take a simple test and be hunting that same day.

Sometimes, DOW takes forever to respond. I'm lucky, my office is about 5 minutes from them I usually go over! Don't give up on them, they will get back to you.

Just got off the tele with Kris at Colorado DOW Hunter Safety.
Contact her at kris.eng@state.co.us
She will be happy to work with you on the matter.
the 8hr course generally is good for 1yr.
Hope this helps you,

Hi Dan,

You simply do not know how right that is:D I now have recieved an e-mail form another lady at DOW about a CID number and what I need to send her to obtain mine and it looks like the information and stuff I ahve here should qualify for the Hunter Ed card. It will take a day or two to get the papers copied or scanned in and sent over to them and then the ladies can make a final decision on what I have supplied. It's looking good though and although I am well ahead in arranging all this time wise it's a real weight off my mind.

Now I can really start to plan ahead and really delve into which would be the best place/time to go and with whom. Still looking at DAL but I am not putting all my eggs in one basket I have been given another personally recommended place to look at and make enquiries with. Must be getting old as I seem to be enjoying the dreaming and planning more and more:rolleyes:

Once again thank you for your help:D

Kris promised that her people would take care of you. Good luck and hope you have a good hunt!

I know what you mean. The anticipation of the hunt is one of the greatest thrills. I already got my new Colorado appoication book but which I could forward to you. It appears as if everything is under control now. Wish you luck where ever you go.

Hi All,

Thank you for all the good wishes, yes I believe that all is under way on sorting out the legalities now. At work on Thursday I made out a list of the expenses that this trip will entail:eek: talk about shock......... yes I knew that Elk hunting would not come cheap but darn it it added up to a lot more that originally thought:rolleyes: so now I am trying to work out ways to make the funds come in faster:) I need a better paid job for starters, may be diet a bit:D

Hmm a lottery win would come in rather handy:rolleyes: :D :p
