The Colorado Division of Wildlife has scheduled a meeting to discuss deer and elk management issues in the Cimarron area located east of Montrose, Ouray and Ridgway.
 
The meeting will be at 7 p.m., Sept. 18, at the Ute Indian Museum, 17253 Chipeta Drive, located just south of Montrose.
 
The DOW is developing a management plan for Game Management Units 64 and 65. The plan will set objectives for population, bull-to-cow ratios, buck-to-doe ratios and harvest.
 
The public is invited to talk about issues and concerns in these game management units.
 
Brad Banulis, DOW terrestrial biologist in Montrose, will be on hand to explain the management plan and to answer questions. After taking public comment, a management plan will be written and sent to the Colorado Wildlife Commission for approval.
 
The plan will be effective for the 2007 big game season.
 
For those who can't attend, written comments can be sent to Banulis at 2300 S. Townsend, Montrose, CO, 81401.
