The Colorado Wildlife Commission was presented with the public input collected on the Big Game License Allocation Work Group’s recommendations at the Commission workshop in Alamosa, late last week.

The results of the public input are available for review by visiting: http://wildlife.state.co.us/hunt/BigGame/. Click on “License Allocation Group,” and then clicking on “Results” under the Public Input Results section.

The Big Game License Allocation Work Group developed a series of recommendations and options on how to allocate elk, deer and pronghorn licenses in Colorado over the course of several meetings that took place in April, May, and June. The committee’s final report was then made available on the Internet. Division of Wildlife (DOW) personnel conducted a series of eight public meetings around the state to outline those recommendations. Any interested member of the public was then asked by the DOW to comment on the recommendations and options using a public input document that was made available both at the public meetings and on the DOW Web site.

The group’s recommendations and options, along with the result of the public input, has now been presented to the Wildlife Commission to assist it in making its decision on what to implement. This next step in the process will take place at their September meeting in Lamar.
