Steve Hilde, is conducting this poll for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. The program will be similar to Montana's Block Management, Wyoming's Access Yes and Idaho's program...It could open up Millions of acres of Private land to us hunters. Please take a few minutes and take it.
Steve Hilde writes.........I am requesting the CDOW sponsor a hunter access proposal which is posted at the web link. I am leveraging the CDOW's sportsmen's advisory group process to seek support and sponsorship.
I am hoping by posting this here, it will create some awareness and support in the sportsmen community for this concept. As well, your feedback would be very valuable for me.
Please look at the data on the web link, and take the poll. If possible let me know your thoughts. I am rookie when it comes to web site design, let me know if you can see the slides or have any trouble.
I hope you can the make the SAG meeting held in your region to further this proposal with the alternatives you support. If it is not on the agenda, please bring it up.
While you consider the concept, please keep in mind how many people may live in Colorado 25, 50 or 100 years from now. If projections are met, think of the pressure, and usage demands placed on public lands by not only hunters, but all user communities. Where will the wildlife be with all the pressure on public lands? I believe the time to get this started is now.
I will be seeking the support of the Colorado Wildlife federation, CBA, RMBS, WSSC and the CMDA. If there are other conservation/advocacy groups that may support this, please let me know so I may contact them.
