A bowhunter hunter education card can be used as valid proof of hunter education for an archery only license. It is not valid proof to purchase a rifle license or a license where the method of take isn't specified (i.e., turkey or small game). Bowhunter education is considered an advanced hunter education course and is not mandatory to purchase an archery license in Colorado. This card also allows students to purchase archery licenses in other US states that only accept bowhunter education for archery licenses.
Bowhunter education is not a required course in Colorado, but is offered as an opportunity to learn additional skills. It is offered as both a traditional class, and as an online bowhunter course + conclusion class in limited parts of the state. A bowhunter education card can only be used to purchase an archery-specific license, and cannot be used to purchase non-specific licenses such as turkey or small game.
