The 2019 Colorado SCI Banquet is literally less than 60 days away! So make sure to mark you calendars for Saturday, March 2nd for this year’s event. Banquet reservations will go up on the website in the next few days, and raffle tickets will follow soon afterwards. We are fortunate to have the Colorado Statewide Moose, Elk. Antelope and Deer tags and these are some of the most coveted tags in the country. We will draw the lucky winners for all four at our banquet March 2, 2019.
Last year’s banquet was a full house and a roaring success. Your generous participation allowed us to raise a lot of money for some excellent charities and organizations in our area (we will be highlighting some of these activities at this year’s banquet).
We have gone paperless, for the most part, so don’t look in your mail box for printed information about our event and the raffles. Our website is the place to go, and if you would like to make sure that you are getting the most up to date info and offers, OPT IN for our SCI E-News. (We do not share our lists so you can be sure the emails are from us, and not one else!!) Just Click Here to Opt In for the SCI E-News (even if you are not sure you are on the list…you won’t get more than one email per address)
We promise you that we will not hound you with mindless junk but we need and WANT to stay in touch with you. If you would like to get notices of our raffles and events, OPT IN to our email list. We will never rent or sell our list. It is safe here. We promise.
WE ARE MORE THAN JUST FUNDRAISING
The Colorado Chapter is more than fundraising. That is a huge component of what we do, but the great thing about raising money is getting to SPEND the money on conservation projects such as habitat for Colorado Moose; Humanitarian projects like the Sportsmen Against Hunger program where we collect meat and food and donate on an ongoing basis to a dozen food banks and shelters; and the Education arm of our chapter where we are very active in the Archery in the Schools program. These are just a sample of what we do with the money we raise.
God Bless our Men and Women in uniform and we thank all of you who have done so in the past.

Yesterday our wildlife officers, staff and volunteers negotiated deep snow as they placed eight orphan bear cubs, each weighing 100-150 pounds, in two artificial dens they built on Pikes Peak. The bears were orphaned last summer when their mothers died, either when they were hit by a car, a train or had to be euthanized for entering a home and presenting a threat to human health and safety. The cubs were sent to Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation, a private, non-profit facility in Wetmore, where they were rehabbed and taught to avoid human contact. CPW officers were cold, wet and covered with straw from crawling in and out of the dens. Still, it was a gratifying day to be able to give these cubs a second chance at freedom. ... See MoreSee Less
Perhaps someone from CPW can explain how these cubs aren't going to freeze to death when they wake up and wonder out of the den because there's no adult bear there to teach them or feed them (mother's milk) during hibernation months? Honest question. Not being snarky.
It’s so good to read about something positive happening for a change. Thank you, CPW.
For the record, this is why I don’t mind paying to register and use my toys. You folks do good work. Ignore the naysayers and keep doing what you do!
This is wildlife conservation I can get behind.
Thanks for helping the bears! So much nicer to read this story than anything else on the news.
Thank you all for giving them a second chance.
What a wonderful thing you are doing! Thank you, CPW!!
CPW and it’s volunteers are simply the best.
Watched this on the news last night it was great!
Thanks for hard work to get them back out there I pray they make it
Awesome story--saw it on the news last PM--made my heart happy!!!!
Do they somehow train them to forage for food?
So awesome! What rewarding work! Sending love
All the people involved in saving the cubs and giving them another chance in life are amazing!❤
Totally awesome but man, your employees could really use a lesson in how to dress properly
Thank you to all the hard working gentlemen and ladies comprising the CPW team. So very appreciative for all you do in keeping our wildlife wild and safe!!!!🐾🐻🦌🦊🦅

"Hunting for us – my husband Kris and my son Mason – is more than killing an animal to fill our freezer. We relish the time together in the mountains, doing something that we love as a family."

I love how anytime there’s a post about hunting the comments section turns into a vitriolic mess. I’m a registered Democrat and an environmentalist, I give to groups that advocate for the welfare of animals, and care deeply about animal rights. But I also recognize how screaming about legal kills undermines the real arguments for animal rights. It’s a legal kill, the meat won’t be wasted, and one elk getting shot isn’t going to send the species to the endangered list. And given the way we’ve screwed with the environment already, hunting is not only a good thing, it’s necessary to restore the balance that we’ve already messed with. The money from the tags goes to helping conservation, and the killing of a single animal by a family who will eat it does far less damage to the environment than factory farming does. Stop confusing having pity for a single animal with being a conservationist; because when you do it undermines the arguments that environmentalists have that are valid and deserving of our attention.
to all the angry emoticons- I guess u buy your meat at the store where it was "humanly" processed...Suck it up buttercups!
How exactly do you people think CPW is funded? Hunters and anglers are, by leaps and bounds, the largest contributors to conservation. The reason YOU get to enjoy the wild places here is BECAUSE of families like this.
Sage Rios thank you! I do appreciate the positive feedback and support. Regardless of negative comments toward me, my family or hunting... you are right. This is my moment. I worked hard for my elk and earned every ounce of meat that is in my freezer. I don't have any shame for feeding my son the most natural and organic meat out there and every time we eat it for dinner my son says "this is your elk mom and it is so good" My son got to experience the great outdoors: hear elk bugle, coyotes howl, sleep under the stars and experience all of the hard work that goes into all of it. He still talks about it and I know those memories will be with me the rest of my life.
Lol did P&W delete all the negative comments? All I see is people complaining about complainers... but no actual anti-hunting complaints...
Great story!! Congrats! Thanks for doing your part to help wildlife management and teach the next generation about nature.
Beautiful animal! Not gonna lie, every animal I’ve ever killed has made me cry. Lol! Doesn’t mean I don’t love the meat!
Many people find that posting pictures of dead animals shot for fun is pretty distasteful. I would hope CPW would have better sense than to post this.
best meat to eat!
These were shot for meat and family bonding; not to satiate some blood lust or penchant for killing. CPW works for hunters and non hunters alike. If they don't show support for hunters, they lose their main source of revenue: hunters. I'm glad to see a family out hunting together, it really is the oldest human tradition. Thank you CPW for posting this.
Great post! Finally something positive about hunters. Genesis 9:3
Angela Huitt congratulations on your Harvest and it's so awesome that you had your family with you. It's nice to know that some people are raising their kids right!
I’m confused. I thought cow elk were taken for meat and bull elk were taken for trophies. That’s not a cow.
Elk for dinner. Yum yum
I've learned that "killing" an animal hurts peoples feelings,and there are some twinkies around these days.so,I always said,we "harvested an elk" this year...much more polite.and u don't hurt any feelings..
It's called wildlife management and creates healthier herds and habitats.
Great job Angela Huitt. You all stop ur complaining obviously u don’t know the family.
Counting down the days!!! This year I plan on hunting everything that I can!!!
Interesting post from this org.
What a beautiful elk. I wish I had the skill and enjoyed the hunt because I'd rather eat that than store bought meat.
I love seeing your family featured! ❤
I'd rather see a poacher with X's in his eyes and a hi-five for a good snipe-shot, then this animal.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife director Bob Broscheid today announced his resignation from the agency. Director Broscheid will become the new Director of Arizona State Parks on Feb. 4. Director Broscheid is returning to his roots in Arizona, where he helmed the Arizona Game and Fish Department before joining CPW.
“It is a bittersweet moment to leave such an amazing agency that does so much for the State of Colorado. The state parks, wildlife and natural resources are the very fabric of Colorado and define who we are as people. Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff dedicate their lives to conserving these incredible assets and I am grateful and humbled for the time I have had working alongside so many incredible people. I will miss Colorado but am looking forward to continuing this important work and building partnerships in Arizona,” says Broscheid.
Director Broscheid led our agency for 5 years, accomplishing key goals including growing relationships among varied stakeholders with the state’s Colorado Outdoor Partnership (CO-OP), the 2018 passage of the Future Generations Act to help stabilize the agency’s finances, and the most recent 2019 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), emphasizing the ties between conservation and outdoor recreation in Colorado.
We wish Director Broscheid great success with Arizona State Parks and Trails! ... See MoreSee Less
Arizona must be looking for another fee increase ! It's always about the money .......
Great start to 2019, now let’s get a new game commission that uses sound science and wildlife managemen!
Raise fees on residents and not out of state and bounce, give this guy a presidential ticket.
It's sad, just horrible what is happening to our elk populations, and the wild sheep and goats... 🙁 Hope the new director can repair the damage they're suffering. Need to find better solutions than clearcutting and burning our public forests just in the "hope" that might help increase a few more tag sales. Get the domestic livestock "at risk from wild herds" away from them, for starters!
I'm glad your leaving here I feel sad for Arizona
Chad McConnahanna wow I have missed a lot in a yr
Thank you for your lasting impact. You will be sorely missed!
Lucky AZ ! Congratulations
Sorry to see Bob go. Hope to work together in Arizona down the road
We are sorry to see you go and wish you all the best in future
So glad you are coming back to Arizona, congratulations!!
All the best to you
Best of luck moving forward Bob, thanks for your public service
Good luck in Arizona, thank you for your contribution to CPW and the people of Colorado.

Salmonflies are one of the the largest of the aquatic insects in Colorado and are important to fish and fisherman alike. They can live up to four years in the river before emerging on stream side vegetation for a brief adult life (lasting only a few days) and a single lifetime opportunity for mating. Salmonflies can reach very high densities in some rivers like the Gunnison, Rio Grande, and Colorado and the can make up to 64-75% of trout's annual diet. Our Aquatic Research Section has been studying the salmonflies density in our rivers, their preferred habitat, and trying to identify limiting factors that could be related to their disappearance from some river segments. #WildlifeWednesday ...

You forgot to add a branch that states, am I being overcharged for entrance, camping, ANS, and H&F license fees? Then yes, you are at a Colorado State Park.
Did it cost you over $100 just to get your boat on the water? Then yes you’re in a CO state park. 👎🏻
And pickup after yourself. Quit leaving your trash for others to pickup.
Now, do you have a flowchart that helps us get Weekend reservations in our own State's Camping Sites??? Call six months before at mid-night and they're all gone. Yet when we do find a few week days together, we notice that a lot of campsites are empty over the weekends. The reservation system leaves a lot to be desired for Colorado Camping Citizens.

I think the confusion starts with not knowing the difference between state parks, state wildlife areas, state trust land and state walk in access. I am sure I missed a few other "STATE" listed areas.
I need this chart for Rocky Mountain please

Last Friday, a team of our biologists, staff and volunteers spent the day at the U.S. Air Force Academy counting birds as part of the Audubon Society's annual Christmas Bird Count. Red-tailed hawks soared, wild turkey ran and staff counted an assortment of jays, finches, magpies and more.

We appreciate you commenting here but be sure to click that link above to leave your comments for consideration ☝🏽
Open up the spring bear hunt
I think you should be able to use preference points how you want. For instance if you have 6 points but it only takes 2 points to draw you should be able to apply only 2 pts and be able to save the 4 pts for the future.
The season structurs are fine. We need to consider a otc cap on all non resident tags, like Idaho does. Say whatever you want, but our elk herds are in trouble and we need to start limiting the pressure from non resident hunters state wide. It's time the CPW stops caring about money and starts managing the elk herds better. We can not continue unlimited otc tags for non residents. Many needs to look at how Idaho does their non resident tag system.
Residents get priority, period. Then over the counter, then out of state hunters. Even an instate resident with 0 preference points should be higher in the draw than an out of state hunter with a dozen.
Why ask for input from the public for public land hunting, when there is no consequences for outfitters keeping wildlife on private lands by driving around the herds and keeping them in their boundaries. How does this not qualify as wildlife harrassment in which you have turned a blind eye?
The Colorado residents are getting choked out!!!!! DOW is all about the money and not the Colorado residents or its animals. For the past 20 years all I see is out of state hunters and they are tearing the land up........ and the POINT CREEP is and will be getting out of control!!!!!!!! As a resident with a lot of elk points, there should be no reason why I can’t hunt the north west units (dream hunts), but I will never see that hunt in my lifetime with the way the points are going up and the amount of hunters flooding our state. Maybe take the advise of Alaska and make your residents FIRST!!!!! They say it’s a 70% resident and 20% non-resident in the draw but I was told by a DOW officer directly that this is not true and the numbers are skewed in the books because DOW wants the money. I feel that an audit needs to happen!!!!!
I’ve hunted Colorado every year since 1995. I’m a NR and definitely agree that residents should come first. I warn all of you just be careful not to alienate us to much we spend a lot of money to no profits to help you fight your fights like wolves, PETA, ever other anti group and land access. If I can’t hunt there there no reason to fight those fights.
Residents should have 1 season where non-residents can’t hunt we should really push for this.
Put muzzleloader elk after archery and how about the does ? Good lord they could use some thinning around unit 75
Non residents pay 10 times more and are willing to pay it.. I doubt CPW would change much there.
It’s Federal land people , we out of staters pay Federal Taxes just like you guys do , so we should have the same opportunities as residents do !!!
Add Another Rifle season in Northwestern Elk units. 1, 2, 201, and 10. Cut some OTC units to draw.
I love the crybaby residents that complain about the nonresident hunters. If there wasn’t any nonresident hunters they would then be crying about how much their resident tags would cost because the revenue would have to be made up somewhere. Regarding the original question, the season dates are good how they are. There is plenty of opportunity in Colorado for both residents and nonresidents.
Are there any elk left to hunt any more? I’m probably not coming back
I would like to see all the seasons moved up about two weeks at least.
Mange your herds don’t be greedy and most of all out of state sale caps
Something should seriously be done about the 4x4 Tour Companies out of Estes Park in Unit 20 that Blast their Modified Stereos through he forest. I stopped Bow Hunting because it is useless trying to hunt when they fly through the forest blasting stereos that can be heard over 1.5 miles away. Senseless!
When and where are the meetings that we can attend? I want to attend
I’ve read a lot of comments on here talking about how the non resident hunters are catered to too much and how residents need to be the focus. A Non Resident pays $660 for a Bull tag and $350 for a deer tag, what does a resident pay? Non residents fund the outfitters, local hotels, restaurants, gas stations, etc. I believe the old saying is “Don’t bite the hand that feeds ya!” As for the pressure, the non residents have to hunt the public ground or pay high outfitter prices. Locals should be able to find private land to hunt on.
Agree with only using preference points needed and conserving what might be left.
Time to do away with the unlimited OTC bull tags..
I want to try to post this on the public comment for him for their meeting but the system will not let me do the survey again since I already did it. Can somebody try to forward this to see CPW. Hopefully they’ll get their heads in the right place after reading this article.... blog.eastmans.com/the-myth-of-preference-points/
I believe it’s time to eliminate OTC elk tags. There are many benefits to this.... -properly manage each units herd numbers -prevent flodding numbers of hunters in OTC units -this will help on the chances of drawing trophy tags like unit 2, 201 ect. - the elk herds WILL rise due to this. Management is everything!
I find hunting muzzle loader season to not be very enjoyable or successful due to the ducks hunters, squirrel hunters, bow hunters, and the decrease in land to hunt due to preference of waterfowl flooding Muzzle loading in the mountains is too early
A good set of duck decoys is a must-have item for any waterfowl hunter. Yet, with the vast assortment of decoys and brands available to hunters, it can be overwhelming to know exactly where to begin.

Have to try to keep the traffic in the high country to a minimum. During the last two weeks of September in particular if we ever want to see the elk population increase in the SW part of the state. I'm a guide in the San Juans and I have noticed a change in elk behavior. They just seem to be rutting later into October, likely in response to immense hunting pressure along with hikers, bikers and photographers. A later rut may seem insignificant, but this means that next year's calves could be up to 4 weeks younger when the frosts and first deep snows come. This can easily equate to a difference of 15-30 lbs of body weight. Without that extra weight and rump fat, calves are in for a tough winter. A calf born in May is far more likely to survive the coming winter than a calf born in June. Elk gestation is about 8 months, meaning the ideal time to breed is early to late September, right when tens of thousands of OTC bow hunters are in the mountains. Then, for some unthinkable reason, muzzle loader is thrown in the middle. (I myself hunt black powder, but i don't think the season should be in Sept) I make my living in the fall on the mountain, but i would rather see OTC tags capped and some seasons moved and/or shortened if that's what it takes to help stabilize our elk herds in the San Juans. Also, it would be nice to see everyone that recreates on public land be required to buy a habitat stamp, not just outsoorsmen.
I hope people will visit only the state and county parks during this shutdown and stop visiting the national parks. The growing problems are bad for everyone, but especially for nature!
Eduardo Ortiz not only this but they also raised the price on all tags. Which is ok with me less people to afford tags= better hunting.
And maybe someday those besides hunters and Fisher people will pay their share
