Craig City Council member Byron Willems listens Tuesday at Craig City Hall to other council members discuss the Colorado Division of Wildlife’s options for addressing deer inside city limits. Although the council did not vote on the issue, a small committee of residents and council members will be formed to discuss two of the three DOW options. The council reached general agreement that allowing marksmen to shoot deer in the city at night was not worth further consideration.
