Colorado natural resources chief cited for hunting on private property

Bruce Finley/The Denver Post

Colorado’s top natural resources manager is heading to court in Routt County to defend himself against allegations that he hunted elk on private property without permission.

A state wildlife officer on Oct. 12 cited Department of Natural Resources director Mike King for an incident involving use of an all-terrain vehicle while hunting elk in September in the Egeria Park area south of Steamboat Springs.

King pleaded not guilty Dec. 10 and is to appear before Routt County Judge James Garrecht on Feb. 26.
