Forest Service extends shooting comment deadline
The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest is extending the comment period for the proposed Forest Plan Management Direction for recreational sport shooting activities on National Forest System lands in Boulder, Clear Creek, Gilpin, Grand, Jefferson, Larimer and Park counties.
Comments will continue to be accepted until Sept. 9.
The proposed Forest Plan direction includes two goals and four objectives for recreational sport shooting. A map displays this proposed direction on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests identifying the National Forest lands suitable for dispersed recreational sport shooting using current regulations, not suitable for dispersed recreational sport shooting, and proposed as designated shooting areas. The proposed management direction does not include any change in management for lawful hunting activities.
