Patt Dorsey, southwest regional manager, will lead the meeting. Also attending will be local CPW wildlife managers and biologists. Updates will be provided on: statewide and regional issues facing the agency; updates on big game, including deer, elk, bears and mountain lions; regional aquatic issues; and youth education and hunter recruitment efforts.

CPW staff also wants to hear from participants regarding big game hunting, fishing and other wildlife-related issues.

“We know people are very busy, but we want to hear what’s on the minds of hunters and anglers,” Dorsey said. “The input we receive in the field is valuable and important. Wildlife conservation and management are vastly enhanced with an involved constituency.”

Also attending the meeting will be southwest region representatives of the statewide roundtable group. The statewide committee is composed of 24 people from throughout Colorado.
