DOW Seeks Public Input on Big Game Season Structure
The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is asking the public to participate in the big game season structure process. Public comment and opinion will be a factor in the decision making process that will set Colorado’s big game season structure for the next five years.
Meetings will be held throughout the state that will allow the public to comment on different options related to season dates and regulations for all big game species in the state. The public will have the option of viewing the different draft alternatives on the DOW Web site or by reading hard copies provided at the meetings. The information will be posted on the DOW’s Web site (http://wildlife.state.co.us) early in July.
The final season structure will be adopted at the Colorado Wildlife Commission meeting on Nov. 17-18. The updated season structure will then be implemented for the 2005-2009 seasons.
