Colorado Parks and Wildlife seeks public input on the structure of the state’s big game hunting seasons for 2020 through 2024.
Several public meetings will be held early this year for interested parties to share information and comments. The public comment form is now available online at www.research.net/r/8MQNS3F.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission sets big game season structures in five-year increments, providing consistency for sportsmen, hunting-related businesses, landowners and communities. Colorado’s big game hunting seasons are used to manage the state’s big game species like – deer, elk, pronghorn, moose, and black bear.
The public comment form specifically asks for input on issues including season length and timing, overlap among different seasons and breaks between seasons and the start and ending dates of seasons. The survey also asks for feedback on youth hunting, safety concerns and archery hunting strategies. Public comment will be accepted through Feb. 4.
