Sportsmen’s Roundtable meeting Aug. 29 in Gunnison


Colorado Parks and Wildlife

All hunters and anglers who are concerned about wildlife and related issues are invited to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Southwest Region Sportsmen’s Roundtable meeting, Aug. 29 in Gunnison.

The meeting is part of the statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable process set up by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to assure that hunters and anglers statewide can provide input, concerns and discuss issues with leaders of the agency. The Gunnison meeting will be the third in the southwest region related to the roundtable process.

In January, a panel of 24 sportsmen was elected and appointed to the statewide roundtable panel. Members represent every corner of Colorado. That group has met twice this year.

The Gunnison meeting will be attended by several southwest region Parks and Wildlife staff members and by at least four of the six southwest representatives to the statewide panel.

The roundtable members will talk about the work of the statewide group, the issues it is discussing and future plans. Agency staff will also talk about current issues and projects, and take questions from the public.

“The roundtable process is being led by hunters and anglers,” said Patt Dorsey, southwest region manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “It’s important that sportsmen and sportswomen in the southwest region provide input to their representatives and to the agency.”

Anyone who is unable to attend but has specific questions or concerns can send that information to Joe Lewandowski, southwest region public information officer at, or call him at (970) 375-6708.

The southwest region includes, roughly, the area from the Four Corners to the San Luis Valley, the Gunnison Basin, the North Fork Valley, and the Montrose-Delta area west to the state line.

The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 29, at the Parks and Wildlife office in Gunnison, 300 W. New York Ave.
