Sportsman center to compile list for hunters

The Craig Chamber of Commerce's Sportsman Information Center has received a number of requests from hunters seeking private land access. They typically ask for a list of property owners who have obtained private land vouchers from the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Because of privacy restrictions, the DOW is not able to disclose the names of property owners who hold vouchers.

The Craig Chamber of Commerce is interested in compiling a list of property owners who hold private land vouchers and are willing to make those vouchers available for purchase by prospective hunters.

Interested voucher holders should contact the Craig Chamber of Commerce at 824-5689 or 824-3046 to reach the Sportsman Information desk.

Requests can also be mailed to the Craig Chamber of Commerce, 360 E. Victory Way, Craig, CO, 81625.
