Technical Requirements

Web Browser
Your web browser must be capable of displaying and processing forms. Browsers that have been tested and are recommended are Netscape Navigator 6.2 or newer, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or newer (5.0 works but we have seen issues), or Mozilla Firefox 1.5. You may use a Macintosh computer to purchase a license via this site, but you must be running one of the browsers listed above (If using Netscape your version needs to be 7.2 or greater). Other Macintosh browsers are not supported on this site. If you do not have one of these browsers, you will not be able to complete the process without first upgrading your software.

Printer
A temporary authorization number will be provided to you upon completion of your license purchase. Colorado Parks & Wildlife encourages the printing of the confirmation for your records. For certain products, you may use this receipt document to hunt or fish until your actual license document arrives in 7 to 10 business days. Since all browser types and screen resolutions will not print web pages in the same format, a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) document link will be available. You are not required to have Adobe installed on your PC, however it is encouraged. To print this page, you must have Adobe version 5.0 or greater.


Methods of Payment
After selecting the licenses you wish to purchase, you will be required to enter your method of payment. We currently accept Visa, Master Card, or Discover. Your payment information will be encrypted and transmitted to our payment processor for direct approval. Your credit card number will NOT be stored in our database. You will be asked to provide your credit card number again during subsequent purchases.


Site Security
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife's site is operating on a secure web server. The information you enter is transmitted to us using a Secure Sockets Layer of communication (SSL). Our server then passes your credit card information to our bank using triple data encryption standards (DES). The bank processes your credit card information and transmits back to us an approval notice. Your browser will indicate when you are operating on a secure server. First, the URL of the web site will begin with an "https", rather than "http". Second, you will find a closed padlock on your status bar.


Troubleshooting
Some customers may experience an error message that reads "DATA MISSING - document has expired from cache" when attempting to view or print their receipt. This is caused by your browser's cache memory being full or set to a low limit. Follow the instructions for your browser version to clear your browser's cache so you are able to print your license.
