Landowner Preference Program (LPP) Updated:07/2019

The Landowner Preference Program (LPP) was created to give landowners a preference for hunting licenses to encourage private landowners to provide habitat that increases wildlife populations for the benefit of all hunters, discourage the harboring of game animals on private lands during public hunting seasons, and relieve hunting pressure on public lands by increasing game hunting on private lands.

With passage of Senate Bill 13-188, a new landowner preference system was created called the Landowner Preference Program. The LPP replaces all previous landowner preference systems. In order to apply for landowner preference, the deeded landowner must register the deeded land with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) by December 1 to be eligible for the drawing the following year. Early registration is highly encouraged. LPP registrations are valid for up to five (5) years.

All registrations submitted will be audited and verified by the local Colorado Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement Officer for compliance with eligibility requirements of this program. Notice of any noncompliance will be provided in writing to the landowner and the landowner shall have thirty (30) days to resolve the noncompliance or withdraw the land from the LPP. In addition, any false statement(s) made in connection with the registration or any subsequent application or voucher as a result of submitting a registration for landowner preference, may be prosecuted.

Landowner Preference Program is implemented under authority by:

Colorado Revised Statutes:  Title 33, Article 4, 103
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Regulations:  Chapter W2, 206, B, 4

The registration deadline is 11:59pm (MST) on December 1 to be eligible for the drawing the following year. The registration must be properly completed AND submitted by the deadline. Early registration is highly encouraged. There is no fee to submit a registration for the LPP. Online registration for the Landowner Preference Program is avaiable here.
