Still time to take survey for big-game management plans for the Gunnison Basin and the North Fork areas; deadline is Sept. 15

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is developing new management plans for big game in the North Fork and Gunnison areas and invites hunters and the general public to take on-line surveys that will help wildlife managers writing the plans.

CPW is working on herd management plans for deer and elk in Game Management Units 53 and 63. The survey can be found at:

CPW is also working on a herd management for deer only in GMUs 52, 411 and 521. Comments can be made at ___.

A new herd management plan is also being developed for GMU 54. The survey can be found at: ___.

Each web-link must be entered exactly as it appears; do not place a period at the end. It also must be entered directly into the address bar of your computer’s web browser — it won’t work if it’s entered into a search window. The survey will be open through Sept. 15.

The purpose of a herd management plan is to integrate Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s management strategies combined with information from the public to determine how a big-game herd should be managed.

CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 42 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education. CPW’s work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado.
