    Default Where can I find my Hunter Safety ID Number?

    I'm planning to hunt deer in Colorado this year and I can't find my hunter safety ID(It's not on the certificate card). Is it the same as the California Hunter ID that we use for the drawing tags here or is it something else? Any information would be great. Thanks.

    You should have a validation stamp on your hunter safety card. My stamp is light blue but they my have changed it in the 26 years sence I got it. The number is the 5 digit number on the validation stamp.

    When I got my license to look up the actual name of the stamp, I found out that I had recieved it on today's day, 26 years ago, March 31, 1983. Kinda cool.

    The only place you will find your CA Hunter Sfety # is on the validation card from the original certificate. I took mine directly to a CO DOW office and had them enter the info in the computer, now it is permanetly on my license there. I don't take my original Hunter Safety card out of the gun safe now, I have had to take the class 3 times in 38 years because of losing it. I heard now they keep the info at the DFG, but before they had no records.

    California no longer has validation stamps. I have a friend who happens to be going to the DFG office today and have his old card updated. Not sure what the exact process is for a validation number but will let you all know when he gets his done today.

    thanks for all the help guys. I just spoke to a F&G rep and she said that I would have to order a new certificate because they didn't issue ID numbers back when I got my certificate. I would have to order a new certificate and they will then issue a number for me. It's going to take up to 10 days.

    I just hope I can still make the colorado draw without a hunter safety ID number on hand. Do any of you know if they will accept the application while my certificate is being processed?

    The deadline for Colorado is April 7th: Colorado Division of Wildlife - Colorado Division of Wildlife
    For the # I have always used the validation stamp # without issue. If you do not have a stamp, get the new card as described above.

    you can call F&G and have them give you the number on your new card before they mail it (it don't take 10 days, lazy people!!!!!), but if they have already mailed it they should have updated the system and put your new number in it and they can read it off to you from there.

    send me a PM if you have any issues with it and i will see what i can do for you.

    Hatchet: you are right, we should have to go to a refresher course every 10 to 15 years. I am sure I would see things diferently as a 37 year old as compaired to the 11 year old I was when I took it. Looking back on how long ago it was really makes a person start to feel old.
