Subject: Fw: Action Alert - Preference Point Sustem
Dear COA Members,
Below is a letter that you can e-mail your clients and have them send to the Wildlife Commission in regards to the Preference Point System being addressed by the Colorado Wildlife Commission.
This is urgent and needs to be addressed immediatly.
COA Executive Director
ACTION ALERT – PLEASE READ – From the Colorado Outfitters Association, Inc.
The Colorado Wildlife Commission is considering changes to the big game license PREFERENCE POINT system.
They are proposing elimination of the preference point hunt code and the only way to get a preference point would be if you hunt a cow when unsuccessful in the draw and that a portion of the licenses be distributed by a random draw.
All of these options would make it difficult for you to ever hunt Colorado or know when you might draw a license to hunt Colorado.
They will be voting on this the 3rd of June.
Please take a minute right now to let them know how you feel.

Dear Colorado Wildlife Commissioner,
I understand that you will be voting on changes to the big game hunting preference point system at your meeting June 3.
As a non-resident Colorado hunter I appreciate the ability to plan and have some idea when I will draw a license in your state. Colorado’s preference point system works. Please don’t change it.
Please do not change the preference point system in any way that will adversely affect my ability to hunt Colorado. I do not want to join the ranks of those who don't hunt Colorado anymore.
Please take a minute and do this now.
