In Colorado, sportsmen have been asking about big game numbers, license allocation, and draw odds. In the coming year, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) will be asking for public input in an effort to redraft the big game hunting license allocation process. Next week, the southeast region will seek public input via a Sportsperson’s Caucus, which will be held virtually and streamed online. Learn more below.
CPW Southeast Region Sportsperson’s Caucus to discuss how hunting licenses are allocated
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Sportspersons from across Colorado are invited to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Southeast Region Sportsperson’s Caucus for updates on a variety of issues important to hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.
The featured topic will be the allocation of big game hunting licenses.
“CPW is examining its current big game allocation policies,” said CPW Southeast Region Manager Brett Ackerman. “This caucus discussion will be part of our thorough and comprehensive outreach to stakeholders to determine the path forward.”
The virtual-only caucus is scheduled 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022. It will be streamed live, online, via CPW’s statewide Facebook page: www.facebook.com/CoParksWildlife.
Besides Ackerman, the caucus will feature Larry McCormack and Ron Goodrich, who represent the CPW Southeast Region caucus as delegates to the statewide Sportsperson’s Roundtable.
Ackerman will also provide an update on CPW’s wolf reintroduction efforts and he’ll discuss recent staff changes within the Southeast Region. Also, CPW biologists will provide updates on aquatics and terrestrial sections.
“Our Sportsperson’s Caucus is a great opportunity for hunters, anglers, trappers and outdoor enthusiasts to engage with CPW staff as well as our caucus representatives,” Ackerman said.
He noted that McCormack and Goodrich will carry all positions taken by the Southeast Region caucus to the Statewide Roundtable when important policy decisions and issues are debated.
“We want all Colorado residents to have an active voice in how CPW manages wildlife,” Ackerman said.
