Roundtable discussion to focus on hunting, fishing

Local sportsmen and women are invited to meet and discuss hunting and fishing issues with their citizen representatives during the Northwest Region Sportsmen’s Roundtable caucus, which will be held at 6 p.m. Monday in Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Steamboat Springs office, 725 Weiss Drive.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife formed the Sportsmen’s Roundtable in 2012 in a continuing effort to provide hunters and anglers with opportunities to submit input about wildlife management decisions.

Consisting of elected and appointed delegates from each of the state’s four wildlife management regions, the groups collect feedback from constituents in a variety of ways, including public meetings.

The input is then relayed to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s leadership at the statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable meetings, held twice each year.
