Colorado officials seek higher hunting, fishing fees

Colorado wildlife officials are holding meetings across the state seeking support from sportsmen and other groups for a plan to double the cost of in-state hunting and fishing licenses.

Without the money, officials say they may have to put gates on state lands, shut down hatcheries and limit hunting licenses.

The Denver Post reports (http://tinyurl.com/zrcljqg ) Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials have cut their budgets by about $40 million since 2009, including $10 million last year, and eliminated 50 jobs.

Some sportsmen say they are willing to pay more to keep hunting and fishing rights.
