Big game seasons on tap for workshop today

Colorado's big game season structure, Division of Wildlife budget projections and an update on Rocky Mountain National Park's elk culling effort headline the agenda for the Colorado Wildlife Commission's February workshop in Denver.

The workshop will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. today in the Hunter Education Building at Division of Wildlife Headquarters, 6060 Broadway, Denver.

The Commission will hear DOW staff comments on the five-year review of Big Game Season Structure, specifically preference points and draws. Commissioners will accept public input about the Big Game Season Structure review, as it will during all meetings and workshops throughout the process. Those who wish to comment on these items are asked to fill out a "blue sheet," a Request to Speak before the Wildlife Commission, and give it to any Division of Wildlife staff at the meeting. Comments may address any aspect of Big Game Season Structure but will be most helpful if they are directed at the Big Game Season Structure topic being discussed at that meeting.

The meeting also will feature a discussion of pronghorn management plans for the Cherokee Park Herd and the Laramie River Herd, as well as the South Platte River Deer Management Plan (GMUs 91, 92, 94, 96 and 951).

In addition, staff will provide commissioners with updates on the DOW's three- to five-year budget projections and the Rocky Mountain National Park elk culling effort, which now is under way.

Finally, the Commission will receive a briefing from licensed rehabilitators Allan and Shirley Casey, owners of WildAgain Wildlife Rehabilitation in Evergreen.

Interested members of the public who are unable to attend can view the entire agenda and listen to the meeting on their computer by clicking on the "listen to audio" link at the Colorado Division of Wildlife Web site.

The Colorado Wildlife Commission is an 11-member board appointed by the governor that sets Division of Wildlife regulations and policies for hunting, fishing, watchable wildlife, nongame, threatened and endangered species. The Commission also oversees Division of Wildlife land purchases and property regulations.
