Colorado DOW Seeks Input on Boulder Area Deer Herd
The Colorado Division of Wildlife is seeking input on the Boulder area deer herd which inhabits Game Management Units 29 and 38 in parts of Clear Creek, Gilpin, Jefferson and Boulder counties. This herd lives in an area where outdoor recreation on public lands is quite substantial and hunting is limited to certain open space areas by permit.
"The Boulder deer herd is highly visible and many people are interested in its management," said Sherri Huwer, northeast region terrestrial biologist. "We would like the public's input to help us establish herd size and male-to-female ratio objectives for a 10-year management plan."
Citizens interested in providing input on the future management of the herd can find background information and a link to a survey on this DAU at:http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/BigGame/HerdManagementDAUPlans/
The deadline for submitting input is May 23, 2011.
