CPW Sportsman Roundtable

When: Wednesday, July 29 at 6 p.m.

The Blue Valley Sportsman Club is found at Milepost 128.1 on Colorado Highway 9, approximately 11 miles south of Kremmling, just north of the Summit/Grand County line. For more information on the public roundtables and CPW’s strategic plan, see http://www.cpw.state.co.us.

The hunting season is fast approaching, and Colorado officials want to hear from you — the hunters, anglers and all outdoorsmen in the Central Rocky Mountains.

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, held July 29 at 6 p.m. at the Blue Valley Sportsman Club in Kremmling.

The Blue Valley Sportsman Club is located at Milepost 128.1 on Colorado Highway 9, approximately 11 miles south of Kremmling, just north of the Summit/Grand County line.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife formed the Sportsmen’s Roundtable in 2012 as part of 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 input from constituents in a variety of ways, including public meetings like the upcoming roundtable in Kremmling.

The input is then relayed to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s leadership at the statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable meetings, held twice each year. The next Statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable meeting is scheduled on Aug. 22 in Buena Vista.

CPW officials will discuss a variety of topics at the Kremmling roundtable, including CPW’s 2015 strategic plan, the West Slope Mule Deer Strategy and ideas and concepts for generating revenue. Both have widespread impact on land use in Summit County, and officials value the input of residents who regularly hunt and fish on lands in the area, including Arapahoe National Forest, the Blue River, Lake Dillon and Green Mountain Reservoir.

Regional Sportsmen’s Caucus meetings are open to participation by any hunter or angler who has an interest in the Northwest Region. The meetings can include any number of participants — no active hunter or angler will be excluded from the discussion.

In addition to voicing opinions at regional meetings, members of the public can contact their local representatives directly at any time.
