Letter: CORE Act deserves support

I agree with the PI’s editorial supporting the CORE Act. The CORE Act is the best legislation introduced for Colorado hunters in a generation. Comprising four previous bills generated over a multi-year period with bipartisan input, it permanently protects several large swaths of land that provide increasingly critical habitat for big game animals. At the same time it codifies more areas for mechanized and motorized recreationists.

Population pressure is consuming more and more land that wildlife requires for its health, well-being and reproduction. The CORE Act balances the technological challenges presented by more and varied recreationists accessing the lands shared with wildlife. As a hunter, I endorse and support the CORE Act, and encourage Sen. Gardner to join Sen. Bennet as a sponsor of this bill. Our wildlife needs it as much as we do.
