Who Needs This Surety Bond?

A Colorado Registered Outfitter Bond is specifically required for anyone who wants to become a registered outfitter in the state of Colorado.

Here’s a breakdown of who needs this bond:

  • Individuals: If you plan to operate as a sole proprietor guiding hunting or fishing trips on land you don’t own, you’ll need the bond.
