Last week the Colorado Chapter of SCI learned through various media outlets that deer were being killed with a bow and arrow in the city limits of Colorado Springs and out of season.

The local paper, the Colorado Springs Gazette, quoted a Colorado Division of Wildlife spokesman as saying that the people killing the deer were ‘Real Hunters’. After talking to the DOW spokesman and to the Area Wildlife Manager, we determined that the quote came from someone else at the press conference.

The Chapter voted to contribute $1000 to Operation Game Thief for a reward for the arrest of these individuals who are taking game illegally.

These are criminals, poachers, and thieves…not hunters. Real hunters don’t poach. Real hunters will help find these people and help stop any kind of criminal activity.

The Colorado Chapter of SCI is a volunteer organization committed to conservation, education and humanitarian projects and we are FIRST FOR HUNTERS!
