Hunting Ban Being Discussed in Colorado!

Friday, April 18, 2008

Please Make Plans to Attend

The Colorado Wildlife Commission will meet to discuss a complete ban on prairie dog hunting in the state of Colorado on May 1-2.  While radical anti-hunting/animal rights groups are targeting prairie dog hunting as cruel, it is a traditional sporting activity and necessary management tool, especially for ranching interests in the state.  Ban proponents like the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) have boasted that they seek to ban all hunting in the United States "species by species" and this proposal is one more incremental step in their plan to end our hunting heritage. 

 

Prairie dog hunting generates significant revenues used for general wildlife management as a result of hunting license sales and Pittman-Robertson excise taxes on ammunition, firearms and other equipment purchased by sportsmen.  This ban will put an end to this essential stream of revenue and detrimentally affect the management of deer, elk and other species.  In addition, Colorado attracts hunters from around the country who generate significant economic activity that benefits the rural communities that need it most. 

The Colorado Wildlife Commission will be meeting at the Holiday Inn on 755 Horizon Drive, Grand Junction, CO 81506 on May 1 and May 2 starting each morning at 8:30am. 

Please attend these meetings and voice your support of all hunting in Colorado.  It is critical that sportsmen show that the radical anti-hunting lobby is in the minority by significantly out-numbering them at the meeting.  If you are unable to attend, please call the Colorado Wildlife Commission at (303) 297-1192 and inform them that you are strongly opposed to any attempt to ban prairie dog hunting in Colorado.
