Colorado Parks and Wildlife to host telephone town halls, gather big game season input 

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s current five-year big game season structure expires at the end of 2019, and the agency is now gathering input to develop the succeeding five-year plan. Parks and Wildlife invites Colorado residents and nonresidents to attend telephone town halls to gather input and ideas for the next big game season structure for 2020 to 2024.

The Colorado resident town hall will take place at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28. The nonresident town hall will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4. Those interested in participating are invited to call 877-229-8493, using passcode 111956.

In addition, Parks and Wildlife has created an online public comment form to obtain as much public feedback as possible. Public comments will be accepted online through Feb. 11.

Specific issues to be addressed in the telephone town hall include hunter satisfaction, options for relieving crowding concerns during deer and elk archery seasons, start dates for seasons and barriers to bear hunting. Additional topics and areas of input are available on the online comment form.
