Why do I need this bond?
By posting a surety bond, wildlife and fishing guides in Colorado pledge to comply with all of the requirements of the laws of the State of Colorado respecting the registration of outfitters stated in Article 55.5, Title 2 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, 1985.
What’s the fine print?
Colorado registered outfitter surety bonds can be continued from year to year by the issuance of a proper continuation certificate by the surety. The certificate must be delivered to the Colorado Office of Outfitters Registration. The surety can terminate the bond by giving the outfitter and the Office of Outfitters Registration written notice of cancellation 30 days prior to the desired termination date.
If the applicant is a part of a corporation, the surety bond must be issued to the business entity. If the applicant is a partnership, the surety bond must name all of the partners.
