The Colorado Wildlife Commission is a volunteer board that sets regulations and policies for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. There are nine wildlife commissioners who represent five different districts in Colorado. They are appointed from each of the following groups: livestock producers; agricultural or produce growers; sportsmen or outfitters; wildlife organizations; and boards of county commissioners. The remaining three commissioners are appointed from the public at large.
