EnCana and Shell open more than 36,000 acres for hunting

Staff ReportGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. Working with the Colorado Division of Wildlife, EnCana and Shell have agreed to keep several large privately owned parcels open for public hunting in the Piceance Creek area. The EnCana agreement is a one-year commitment by the company to keep approximately 17,000 acres of private land on the Roan Plateau open during the 2007 big game hunting seasons. Access to property owned by Shell is maintained through a 10-year hunting access lease that Shell and the DOW entered into in 2006. The agreement leases more than 19,000 acres of land to the DOW for hunting access for $1 per year. To protect the safety of energy exploration workers who may be operating in the areas the agreement lays out specific areas where hunting is allowed. For more information about hunting access locations, contact the DOW Meeker office at 970-878-6090 or P.O. Box 1181, Meeker, CO 81641.
