Colorado Parks and Wildlife is seeking input on a new management plan for mountain lions in southwest Colorado. A meeting to discuss the proposal is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Feb. 13 at the Bill Heddles Recreation Center 531 N. Palmer St, in Delta.
At the meeting, CPW wildlife managers will discuss the new proposed plan for mountain lion management. Biologists have been reviewing research on mountain lions from Colorado, Wyoming and Montana that is helping them evaluate populations and harvest objectives to better meet public desires. The plan could be put in place for the lion hunting season that starts in November.
Those interested in mountain lion management should attend the meeting, especially hunters, outfitters, farmers, ranchers and landowners.
Big game management plans provide guidance to wildlife managers who attempt to balance the biological capabilities of animals, their habitat and public requests for wildlife-related recreation opportunities. The management plans drive important decisions, which include the license-setting process, and strategies and techniques to reach population and harvest objectives.
