I’ve been sharing a lot of information about wildlife management in Colorado and specifically about the decline of our elk populations in the southern part of the state. At the January Commission meeting, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) agreed on limiting archery hunting licenses in a number of hunting units. This decision was made in an effort to reduce the amount of pressure the elk herds receive during their primary breeding season.
Last night CPW held its first of a number of public meetings where they are seeking public input on updating Elk Herd Management Plans in the southwest region. In all CPW will be hosting four separate public meetings. Last night’s meeting was in Dolores. The next meeting will be held in Pagosa Springs on Wednesday, February 6th. Please see the flyer below for additional information and for other meeting dates, times and locations.
If you are unable to attend any of these meetings feel free to fill out the online survey at https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSdo3kQ96EalD3aNrt…/viewform
All survey responses are due by February 25, 2020.
I’d like to personally request that you keep the wildlife in mind when you’re considering commenting and completing surveys. While I’m a hunter and look for the best opportunities, there will be no opportunity if we have not elk.
