Colorado Parks and Wildlife seeks public input

"The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission sets big game season structures in five-year increments, providing consistency for sportsmen, hunting-related businesses, landowners and communities. Colorado's big game hunting seasons are used to manage the state’s big game species like – deer, elk, pronghorn, moose, and black bear.

The public comment form specifically asks for input on issues including season length and timing, overlap among different seasons and breaks between seasons and the start and ending dates of seasons. The survey also asks for feedback on youth hunting, safety concerns and archery hunting strategies. Public comment will be accepted through Feb. 4, 2019."

Feedback form is available online: https://

"Colorado Parks and Wildlife carefully considers the public's comments when making changes to the season structure. A summary of public input will be presented to the Commission in March for final recommendations and adoption by the Commission in July or September 2019.

Colorado's 2017 big game hunting seasons generated over $840 million, according to the 2017 Economic Contributions of Outdoor Recreation in Colorado report. To learn more about Colorado’s big game season structure process and timeline, visit"
