The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is sponsoring a clinic designed to help hunters improve their skills for the upcoming elk hunting season.

The clinic is a way for hunters to learn how and where to hunt elk, and to improve their chances of filling their licenses this season. Preparation for the hunt, elk biology, hunting techniques, ethical hunting, and more will be covered in the clinic to help make for a successful hunt.

“Beginning hunters, and those with limited elk hunting experience, will get the most from the clinic,” said Lisa Evans, northeast region education coordinator for the DOW. “The clinic will have a lot to offer in terms of improving hunting skills, how to find quality hunting areas, and how to make sure you have a safe, successful hunt. Our goal is to help Colorado hunters improve their success in the field and provide an introduction to those who want to learn more about elk hunting.”

The elk hunting clinic will be held Thursday, Sept. 2, 2004 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the University Park Holiday Inn, 425 W. Prospect, Fort Collins. The clinic will provide an in-depth look into the habitat and habits of, and effective hunting techniques for, the monarch of the Rockies. Presenters include Wildlife Officers Rick Spowart and Fred Quartarone, and DOW big game biologists.

There will be a $5 admission fee at the door, and pre-registration is required. Those interested in registering for the clinic should call the DOW Northeast Region Office at 970-472-4447, or e-mail kat.castilow@state.co.us with names, e-mail addresses and/or phone numbers.
