Colorado Parks and Wildlife is developing new management plans for big game in the North Fork and Gunnison areas and invites hunters and the general public to provide comments through online surveys.
CPW is working on herd management plans for deer and elk in Game Management Units 53 and 63. Comments can be made at: https://www.research.net/r/53and63. CPW is also working on a herd management for deer only in GMUs 52, 411 and 521. Comments can be made at https://www.research.net/r/comment-GMU-52-411-521.
The weblinks must be entered exactly as it appears; do not place a period at the end. It also must be entered directly into the address bar of your computer's web browser -- it won't work if it's entered into a search window. The survey will be open through Sept. 15.
The purpose of a herd management plan is to integrate Colorado Parks and Wildlife's management strategies with information from the public to determine how a big-game herd should be managed.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
