November 13, 2016
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission will receive briefings from staff on a variety of topics, including financial sustainability and the reissue and refund policy of big-game licenses at their meeting at the Lamar office at 8 a.m. on Nov. 17. A complete agenda for this meeting can be viewed here: http://cpw.state.co.us/aboutus/Pages/CommissionMeeting2016-11.aspx and can be listened to live. Information is in the link url.
Commissioners will receive an update regarding CPW’s finances and will also be presented with a summary of sportsmen responses to potential fee increases of resident hunting and fishing licenses. Public comments were collected last summer at 18 “Funding the Future” meetings and online on the CPW website.
Additional informational updates to the Commission include the overlap of archery and muzzleloader seasons, and an overview of the Colorado SHIFT principles.
Action items include the approval of the Big-Game Auction and Raffle Program, Corral Bluffs Natural Area Designation and the Chancellor Ranch Bighorn Sheep Access Program.
The Commission will also consider citizen petitions regarding the use of pin-site verifiers on bows and consider a request to modify the start date of the moose archery seasons for the remainder of the 2015-2019 big-game season structure.
The meeting location is CPW Lamar office, 2500 S. Main Street. The commission meets regularly and travels to communities around the state to facilitate public participation.
