Colorado to Ban Prairie Dog Hunting

The Colorado Wildlife commission held its regular March meeting in Denver on Thursday, March 13. The meeting began at 8:30 a.m. and ran through 4:15 p.m.

A citizen petition was introduced for banning the shooting of prairie dogs.

Colorado cattle growers and sheep grower’s assoc were present to argue against the petition.

Commissioners will hear more debate at next meeting on May 1-2 - Meeting in Grand Junction. Your presence will be helpful.

The Commission will make a decision at the July10-11 Meeting in Durango.
Most of the commission members are not hunters, so this will seem like a valid cause to them.

If we don’t standup for our sport no one else will. There is also a good possibility that the neighboring states will soon follow suit.

Attendance at the meting will be helpful or if unable. Letters or calls to the Commission will help.

    have faith.....

    ....but.....everyone should take the time to write to the wildlife commisioners....numbers matter.....if we dont get vocal over this it could happen.

    I happen to be good friends with one of the members of the wildlife commision. he and I spent many a day hunting prarie dogs back in our younger days and we still hunt together with our sons for deer and elk. i know what his feelings are on this matter and i know him to be a staunch supporter of our hunting heritage. i have faith that this will come out in our favor....AJ

    WHAT?????...only 1 treehugger per day? Now that's what i call an OUTRAGE. There shouldn't be any limit on those varmints at all. They serve no purposes other than too make the rest of the world miserable. To hell with their limits..........I'll just shoot them on sight for fun anyways.
