Park County pronghorn management meeting July 15

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will hold a public meeting to gather input on the pronghorn herd in Park County next week. Officials will discuss pronghorn population and composition objectives and other issues regarding pronghorn management in Game Management Units (GMUs) 49, 50, 500, 501, 57, 58, 581, and 511. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 15 at the Hartsel Community Center, 86 Valley Ave., Hartsel.

“The DOW is eager to gather input from landowners, outdoor enthusiasts, and hunters to help us gauge the appropriate population and male-to-female ratio objectives for a 10-year management plan,” said DOW biologist Heather Halbritter. “Wildlife belongs to all of the public, and we’d like everyone to have a say.”
