    So the Colorado Division of Wildlife is stepping up their recruitment and retention efforts by identifying people moving in from out of state that previously held hunting licenses. Several of us Huntmasters are going to the initial training meeting tonight to see how we can help, once these people have been identified. So far the initial response from new Colorado residents has been a little slow.
    Anyway, I know how confusing regulations can be when moving to a new state, plus losing your hunting partners and your favorite places. So I'm posting this to try to find new people who have moved here recently and are still in the dark about Colorado hunting.

    Elizabeth Akard with the DOW is coordinating the efforts, so if you're new to Colorado and would like to be contacted, give Elizabeth a call at:

    I've hunted here two years now, but sure could use the info. Is there a meeting planned for the Springs area anytime?

    The meeting is primarily for the volunteers who will help with the recruiting efforts. Since this is still in pilot stage, I believe they will focus on the the Northeast District first (Denver to Ft. Collins, essentially). But give Elizabeth a call to let her know there is interest in the Springs. It seems to me that it would be especially important to work in that area due to the nomadic Air Force guys coming from lots of places.

    Sounds like a cool idea. Wish they had it in my state, where the hunting regs are as confusing as income tax forms...

    By the way, they did mention there are already programs in place on the military bases to help guys out. They specifically mentioned the rec center at Ft. Carson has a liason.
