DOW Meetings Regarding Herds in Ft Collins Colorado Area
The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will hold two separate public meetings to gather input on two big game herds in the Red Feather/Poudre Canyon area. Elk management in Game Management Units (GMUs) 7, 8, 9, 19, and 191 will be discussed, as well as deer management in GMUs 7, 8, 9, 19, and 191. The Fort Collins meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., February 15 at the Fort Collins Hilton, 425 West Prospect Road, Fort Collins.
"The DOW is eager to gather input from landowners, outdoor enthusiasts, and hunters to help us gauge the size of these herds and direct population the male-to-female ratio objectives for a ten-year management plan," said DOW biologist Mark Vieira. "Wildlife belongs to all of the public and we'd like everyone to have a say."
People interested in providing input who cannot attend one of the meetings can obtain a questionnaire from http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/BigGame/.
The deadline for returning completed surveys will be midnight, March 1, 2007.
