CPW to host public comment meeting for big game hunting plan in Kremmling

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reaching out to hunters and sportsmen for input on the agency’s next Big Game Season Structure, which creates the framework for annual big game hunting regulations.

The agency will be hosting a meeting at the CSU Extension Hall in Kremmling at 7 p.m. on Jan. 24 to gather public comments on what the next Big Game Season Structure should look like.

“Local communities know how important hunting is to the area and how this structure affects everyone. We hope to see a good turnout,” said Area Wildlife Manager Lyle Sidener.

The Big Game Season Structure is a five-year plan that outlines what hunting opportunities will be available, when and where they will be available and how the opportunities will be divided among types of hunters.

The current Big Game Season Structure expires in 2019 and officials are collecting input for the 2020 to 2024 structure.

Aside from public input, CPW uses its herd management plans and annual license recommendations to create the Big Game Season Structure.

CPW has already held meetings in Steamboat Springs and Eagle and will host the final public input meeting in Grand Junction on Jan. 30. Hunters and sportsmen are also encouraged to leave comments online or participate in a telephone town hall by calling 877-229-8493 at 7 p.m. on Jan. 28.
