CO – HUNTING – Colorado Parks and Wildlife to refund hunters after public land closed off due to wildfires

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) announced this week it is offering refunds to second-season rifle hunters with deer or elk tags in Boulder, Gilpin, and Clear Creek Counties because wildfires have forced the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to close two of the state’s most popular hunting grounds, the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests. Hunters with tags in Game Management Units (GMUs) 29, 38, and 39 will be affected by the closures, CPW said Tuesday. CPW has already issued refunds for licenses in GMUs 6, 7, 9, 19 and 20 along with S1 and S40. “We are working closely with the Forest Service and will continue to monitor the situation and prepare for potential impacts to other seasons,” CPW’s Northeast Deputy Region Manager Kristin Cannon said in a statement. “These are unprecedented times and we ask that hunters do their part to observe emergency closures and other restrictions.” The USFS and U.S. Bureau of Land Management also issued closures affecting federal land in Jefferson and Larimer Counties. The agencies said they will re-evaluate their decisions to close national forest lands daily.  [full article]
