Bills Proposed to Limit Hunting Access in Colorado!

Friday, February 1, 2008

Several bills have been proposed in the Colorado Legislature that seek to severely restrict access to Colorado’s rich hunting heritage.

House Bill 1069, introduced by State Representative Kathleen Curry (D-61) and State Senator Lois Tochtrop (D-24), presumes all unmarked trails are closed to motorized vehicles.  This bill would restrict access to hunters using ATVs and create penalties for infractions.  This bill has already passed through the Colorado House and is now moving on to the State Senate for its consideration.   

Please contact your State Senator and respectively urge him or her to oppose this restriction on your hunting rights.  Contact information for your State Senator can be found by clicking here.

On Wednesday, February 6, the House Agriculture, Livestock, & Natural Resources Committee will consider two bills, House Bill 1137 and House Bill 1096, that must be defeated.

House Bill 1137, sponsored by State Representative Jerry Sonnenberg (R-65), would force the Division of Wildlife to sell an equal amount of hunting land for every purchase, grant, or gift of hunting land it inherits - an anti-“No-Net Loss” bill.

House Bill 1096, introduced by State Representative Debbie Stafford (D-40) would prevent anyone to hunt game behind an enclosure, no matter how large the enclosure.  The language is so broadly written that it would ban hunting on all fenced properties, regardless of their size.  The bill is scheduled for a hearing in the House Agriculture, Livestock, & Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday, February 6 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 0107.  Please contact the members of the House Agriculture Committee today and respectively urge them to oppose HB1137 and HB1096.
