Post DOW: Denver and Fairplay Meetings on Elk Management
DENVER AND FAIRPLAY MEETINGS TO GATHER INPUT ON ELK MANAGEMENT IN GMU 50, 500, 501

COMMENTS ALSO ACCEPTED VIA SURVEY OBTAINED FROM DOW

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will hold public meetings in Denver on Wednesday, October 25th, and in Fairplay on Thursday, October 26th, to gather input on three big game herds in the South Park area. Elk management in Game Management Units (GMUs) 50, 500, and 501 will be discussed. Input will also be taken on deer management in GMUs 49, 57, 58, and 581, as well as pronghorn management in units 49, 50, 57, 58, 501, 511 and 581.

The Denver meeting will be held at the Hunter Education Building at the Division's Denver headquarters, 6060 Broadway, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Fairplay meeting will be held at the Northwest Fire Station #2, 21455 Highway 285, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“Specifically we want input to help establish herd size and male to female ratio objectives for a ten year management plan,” said Jack Vayhinger, the DOW biologist for these game management units.

“Talking to landowners, residents, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts is one of the tools we use for developing our long-term goals for elk management,” said Mark Lamb, District Wildlife Manager in Fairplay. “We want the public to know that their input is welcomed and encouraged in our decision-making process,” he added.

People interested in providing input who cannot attend one of the meetings can obtain a questionnaire from jennifer.churchill@state.co.us.

The deadline for returning completed surveys will be November 15, 2006.
