Did you know that President Theodore Roosevelt visited Colorado many times, not just on official business but also for recreation? Roosevelt loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting in Colorado. A copy of TR’s Colorado hunting license from 1905 can be found in the Biennial Report of the State Game and Fish Commissioner for that year (also shown below; click image to enlarge). The President hunted bear near Glenwood Springs; a photo of his return from the hunt can be viewed online courtesy of the Denver Public Library.
