Big-game structure meeting on tap in Montrose
Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts in the Montrose area are encouraged to attend Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s big-game season structure meeting Feb. 18 at the CPW office, 2300 S. Townsend Ave.
The meeting is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m. and will cover hunting issues for the 2015-2019 seasons.
Topics include the number of seasons for each species, the overlap among different seasons, breaks between seasons and the beginning and ending dates of hunting seasons.
The preference point system and limited elk hunting units will also be discussed as part of this process.
Part of the five-year season structure format by which Parks and Wildlife develops its hunting regulations, the regulations include deer, elk, moose, pronghorn, black bear and mountain lions.
“This is the public’s chance to let us know what is or isn’t working for them when it comes to the current hunting season structure,” said Patt Dorsey, southwest regional manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
