Colorado Commission Finalizes Big Game License Allocation...
Ordinary average hunters need to participate in the DOW public meetings like the one noted below. By remaining silent sportsmen have allowed commercial interests to garner a very fat and increasing share of the hunting opportunities.
If they don't hear from non commercial interests, the commercial interests will continue to try and get more of the licenses at the expense of the ordinary hunter.
