Colorado: Anti-Hunting Legislation Initiative 91 Scheduled for Public Comment
On Friday, September 22nd, Initiative 91 was filed to appear on the ballot in the November 2024 election in a push by anti-hunting advocates trying to stop the age-old practice of hunting predators, such as Mountain Lions, in Colorado. This action, should it be implemented, would inhibit the ability of hunters and state wildlife officers to manage the growing predator populations through hunting. This will lead to overpopulation, damage to the elk and deer herds, and even more interactions of predators with the public.
Initiative 91 has been scheduled for a review and public comment hearing on October 6th, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. Information on how to submit digital public comment can be found on the Colorado General Assembly website here.
The North American model of conservation requires the presence of hunters on the landscape and is heavily regulated and controlled by biologists and state wildlife agencies. It is, by far, the most successful conservation model in the world. Please help your NRA stop this dangerous, misguided initiative and its blatant attack on your hunting heritage.
