DOW seeks hunting input

Staff Report

The Colorado Division of Wildlife soon will begin the process of developing big game hunting season structures for the next five years. The DOW is calling on the public to participate in the process between November 2003 and September 2004. According to a DOW news release, the goal of the season structure is to define the types of hunting that will be available, how those opportunities will be divided among hunters and when the seasons will be offered to meet biological management objectives.”All of the input we receive, regardless of its form, will be compiled and provided to DOW staff as well as directly to the Colorado Wildlife Commission,” the news release said. Some of the policies being considered include:-What distinctions should there be between early, regular and late hunting seasons?-Should there be a limit on the number of nonresident big game hunters?-Should all big game licenses be limited statewide?-Should all-terrain vehicles be restricted during the big game hunting seasons?Input will be taken through public forums, testimony, letters and e-mail.
