Craig briefs: CPW to host license fee meeting Wednesday

Craig Daily Press news brief

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is seeking input from sportsmen on funding the future of wildlife management and conservation in Colorado, according to a CPW news release.

Hunters, anglers and anyone who wants to learn more about the financial challenges facing the state’s wildlife management agency is invited to attend a discussion with CPW representatives at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 at Grand County CSU Extension Office, 210 11 St. in Kremmling.

CPW anticipates budget shortfalls, which could be offset by increasing resident license fees. The last increase occurred in 2006 after legislative approval the year before. Since 2009, CPW has cut or defunded 50 positions and cut $40 million from its operating budget. Wildlife managers caution that additional cuts are inevitable without an increase in revenue.

Currently, a limited elk license for resident adults costs $46. Resident youths pay $10.75 for limited deer, elk and pronghorn licenses. Limited deer license and pronghorn licenses are $31 for resident adults.

Gail Schwartz slated to visit Craig on Tuesday, Aug. 23

Gail Schwartz, D-Carbondale, candidate for U.S. Congress in the 3rd Congressional District, will be in Craig at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23 at Downtown Books for a meet and greet.
