Elk NetworkHelp Shape Colorado’s Hunting Future

General | January 9, 2019

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) wants to know what you think about the structure of the state’s big game hunting seasons for 2020 through 2024. A public comment form is now available online, and several public meetings will be held in early 2019.

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission sets big game season structures in five-year increments, providing consistency for sportsmen, hunting-related businesses, landowners and communities.

“It’s important to get public input and hear ideas from hunters and the communities that have an interest in our hunting seasons,” says Andy Holland, CPW big game manager. “Big game season structure is about designing hunting seasons that provide a broad range of hunting experiences and manage big game populations to Herd Management Plan objectives.”

Public comment will be accepted through Feb. 4, 2019.
