COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The election season isn’t quite over. There will be another important election Nov. 28 when Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) convenes a Southeast Region Sportsmen’s Caucus in Colorado Springs.
All hunters, anglers, trappers and outdoor enthusiasts in attendance will nominate and elect two people to serve two-year terms as Southeast Region delegates to CPW’s Statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable.
Those delegates will have an active voice in how CPW manages wildlife in Colorado and represent the Southeast Region in statewide debates on CPW policies, regulations and resource management decisions.
The caucus will convene in the Hunter Education classroom located at the rear of the CPW Southeast Regional office at 4255 Sinton Road, Colorado Springs. It begins at 6 p.m. and will end by 8 p.m.
Besides electing two delegates, CPW staff will discuss the impact of chronic wasting disease on Colorado’s mule deer population and the agency’s efforts to combat the deadly neurological disease. CPW staff also will provide an update on the hunting issues including the 5-year season structure.
But the election will be the major item on the agenda.
“The election of delegates is important because of the key role they play carrying the message of Southeast Region sportsmen and women to the statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable.,” said Dan Prenzlow, manager of CPW’s Southeast Region. “We value our delegates and look for passionate outdoor enthusiasts to fill those positions.”
For the past two years, the Southeast Region delegates to the Statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable were Willie Kalaskie and the late Dave Roudebush.
