Elk licenses a tough find in Moffat County

With hunting draws completed, leftover hunting licenses are now on sale, but not many are available around Craig. In many game management units around Colorado, leftover licenses were still available in plentiful supply for bears, deer and elk as of Aug. 22, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife reports. Hunting tags for elk in GMUs around Craig, however, have been scarcer. Local licensing agents have been selling tags, but not at the rate they are accustomed to, some said. Leftover tags went on sale Aug. 14 and several area licensers made sales the first couple days, but have been mostly dormant since.

Craig doctor loses license

The Colorado Medical Board suspended Tuesday the license of Dr. Joel Miller, operator of High Country Medical in Craig. The Colorado Medical Board issued the decision citing concerns about an alleged alcohol abuse problem and Miller’s ability to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to his patients. Miller’s case was brought before the Colorado Medical Board last month following his July 3 arrest in Hayden for obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest. The Colorado Medical Board ordered Miller on July 12 to undergo an initial evaluation by the Colorado Physician Health Program, according to the Colorado Medical Board report.
