Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is requesting public comments on two big game herds in the Front Range. Deer management in Game Management Units (GMUs) 104, 105, and 106 and pronghorn management in GMUs 51, 104, and 105 are being reviewed.

"Colorado's wildlife is enjoyed by everyone and everyone has a say in how it's managed," said Joe Padia, District Wildlife Manager for these game management units. "We would like the public's input to help establish herd size and male to female ratio objectives for a ten-year management plan."

People interested in providing input can obtain a questionnaire from http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/BigGame/.

Those members of the public who wish to comment but do not have access to the Internet, can request a copy by calling Jennifer Churchill at 303-291-7234.

The deadline for submitting comments has been extended to May 2, 2007.
