Parks and Wildlife reaches out with hunting seminars

Upland bird hunting often includes hard-working dogs and here Brent Blundell of Bountiful, Utah, shows off his Springer spaniels during a special youth hunt. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering a free seminar on upland bird hunting on Aug. 29



Fall means more than football.

Sportsmen busy fishing, boating and ATVing all summer turn their eyes toward other quarry when the temperature drops and the days grow a little shorter.

Even would-be hunters feel a bit of that natural urge and Colorado Parks and Wildlife is eager to make sure novice and experienced hunters have the knowledge they need to make that day in the field successful.

Whether your quarry has wings or four legs, this month the CPW Northwest Region Hunter Outreach Program has something for you.

On Aug. 27, a free Mule Deer Hunting 101 class will be offered beginning at 6 p.m. at the Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Ave.

According to CPW, the seminar will cover mule deer habitat, biology, animal distribution, hunting strategies and hunting equipment. Regulations, field dressing techniques and recipes will also be discussed.

“In addition to the material covered, conversations and sharing of information is a beneficial part of the class,” said Dick Severin, assistant Hunter Outreach Coordinator for CPW. “Students will have an opportunity to learn from hunting experts and from each other.”

Then, on Aug. 29, you’ll get the chance to learn about game bird-hunting at the ‘Upland Bird Hunting 101’ seminar, also at 6 p.m., also at the Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Avenue.

Expect to hear about a variety of topics, including bird habitat, biology, behavior and distribution of both native and non-native birds.

In addition, hunting regulations, field dressing and recipes will be part of the evening’s discussion.

“Colorado has a large variety of upland game bird species that can be hunted,” said CPW Northwest Region Education Coordinator Kathleen Tadvick. “It is a popular activity here and across the United States but there are specific techniques that are important to know for an enjoyable hunt and this will be a great opportunity to learn.”

Tadvick said topics also will include the use of hunting dogs, often needed because many upland birds are often found in heavy cover.

Space for both of these free seminars is limited and prior registration is required.
