Time to talk huntin’ and fishin’
September 11, 2008
CARBONDALE ” People who want to talk about hunting, fishing and other wildlife issues will get a chance Thursday, Sept. 18 to meet with two members of the Colorado Wildlife Commission in Carbondale.
Wildlife commissioners Dorothea Farris of Carbondale and Roy McAnally of Craig will be available at Carbondale Town Hall at 511 Colorado Ave. from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.
“These meetings give the commissioners the opportunity to visit with constituents about a wide range of wildlife topics. The meetings do not have set agendas, but typically include time for a brief opening statement from the commissioners and then questions or comments from the public,” said a statement from the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Staff members from the wildlife division will also attend the meeting.
The Colorado Wildlife Commission is an eleven-member board appointed by the governor. The commission sets Colorado Division of Wildlife regulations and policies for hunting, fishing, watchable wildlife, and non-game, threatened and endangered species. Commissioners also oversee DOW land purchases and property regulations.
