CPW program looking for sportsperson to serve on local committee

Sky-Hi staff report

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for a licensed big game hunter to serve as the sportsmen’s representative on the agency’s Middle Park Habitat Partnership Program Committee.

The Middle Park sportsmen’s representative must regularly buy big game hunting licenses; attend four committee meetings throughout the year; and represent sportsman’s interests.

Interested sportsmen and women are encouraged to attend the next Middle Park HPP Committee meeting, 1 p.m. June 13 at CPW’s office in Hot Sulphur Springs, 346 Grand County Road 362. All Habitat Partnership Program meeting are open to the public.

Since 1990, CPW’s Habitat Partnership Program has brought sportsmen, private landowners, public land managers, CPW staff and the public together to find creative solutions to reduce agricultural damage caused by deer, elk, pronghorn and moose. In addition, the Habitat Partnership Program helps CPW meet management objectives for those same species.

The Middle Park Committee was one of the first the agency implemented, forming in 1990.

Prior to the formation of the Program, big game caused extensive damage to agricultural operators, placing a significant financial burden on CPW.

While typically involved in fence and forage issues, the Habitat Partnership Program also works on habitat improvement projects, water development, conservation easements, and big game research activities.

HPP is funded by sportsmen’s dollars generated by the sale of big game licenses.
