The Colorado Wildlife Commission will finalize all 2010 limited, big game license numbers for deer, elk, pronghorn, black bear and moose at its regular meeting Thursday, May 6 in Glenwood Springs.

The meeting will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:20 p.m. at the Ramada Inn and Suites, 124 W. 6th St.

Along with the approval of license numbers, the Commission will also finalize provisions related to Division of Wildlife properties. These provisions are generally applicable and property-specific requirements for, Division of Wildlife (DOW) properties, including State Wildlife Areas (SWA) and State Trust Lands leased by the Division.

Regulations will be established on newly opened properties including Andrick Ponds SWA, Paddock SWA, Reddy SWA, Tomichi Creek SWA and Van Tuyl SWA. The Commission will also look to provide additional public-land turkey hunting opportunity by extending the closing dates on various State Trust Lands until May 31.

The Commission will also consider several regulations at the draft stage including the modification of the Landowner Pilot Program in Game Management Unit 1, and annual changes to Furbearers and Small Game regulations.

The Commission will also hear a presentation on Colorado sage-grouse conservation and research by DOW staff.

Constituents can listen to Commission meetings and workshops through the DOW's Web site. This opportunity is provided to keep constituents better informed about the development of regulations by the Commission and how they and the DOW staff are resolving issues facing Colorado's wildlife.
