Hunters have started to boycott the state of Colorado in response to Gov. John Hickenlooper's signing of a number of new gun laws, according to a report from Fox News.
Earlier this month Hickenlooper signed controversial bills that banned magazines capable of holding more than 15 rounds and required background checks for private and online gun sales. Since then, local hunting outfitters say that some customers have been canceling trips, according to a report from the Colorado Springs Gazette.
Reports state that out-of-state hunters accounted for 15 percent of Colorado's hunting licenses last year.
