HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard. At this time, anyone can apply for a hunting license in CO. The prohibition comes in possession of a firearm. However, at this time there is no prohibition against hunting with archery equipment.

Felons may not possess any type of weapon. But if the DV conviction was a misdemeanor the only prohibition is on firearm possession. The other option you have is to apply for a Governor's Pardon - see this link

That will make you eligible to then Petition the court to have the matter removed from your court and arrest records.

And for clarification, "archery equipment" is a hand held bow and arrow. A compound bow would be illegal for a felony conviction.
