The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is considering changes to the hunting season structure on Fort Carson. Members of the public interested discussing hunting on Fort Carson are invited to attend a public meeting April 16 at the new DOW office, 4255 Sinton Road in Colorado Springs, at 6 p.m.

The meeting will address changing the Fort Carson hunting season structure from a floating season from October to January, to combining the seasons with Big Game Management Unit 59 and matching the standard season structures.

“This is a great chance to talk about hunting opportunities at Fort Carson,” said District Wildlife Manager Steve Cooley. “Fort Carson has a healthy population of wildlife, but hunters should remember that hunting opportunities on any Department of Defense installation are subject to access and security considerations.”

Representatives from the DOW and Fort Carson will be on hand to answer questions. For more information about the meeting, call the Colorado Springs DOW office at (719) 227-5200.
