Colorado Parks & Wildlife Commission Meeting Update

TOPIC: Mule Deer Strategy: Summary of Public Input: Julie Shapiro, Brooke Trainum: The Keystone Center. Update provided at the July 2014 Commission Meeting

Why Have a Summit?

Across the Western U.S., state wildlife agencies are seeing declines in mule deer populations. In recent years, mule deer populations in Colorado have decreased in several areas on the West Slope, including the White River National Forest. This spring, Colorado Parks and Wildlife embarked on a process to bring together sportsmen, landowners, outfitters, biologists, wildlife managers, other state agencies, federal agencies, local elected officials and other interested members of the public to address declining mule deer. On behalf of CPW, The Keystone center facilitated seven public meetings, including two on Colorado's Front Range and five on the West Slope, to discuss the issues facing mule deer and possible solutions to inform the development of a West Slope Mule Deer Strategy.

A Draft of the West Slope Mule Strategy will be released this August. On August 9th CPW and The Keystone Center will hold a West Slope Mule Deer Summit where CPW will be presenting this strategy and seeking feedback.
