Wildlife management happens because of hunting and fishing. Herds stay healthy and thrive. Habitat is plentiful and preserved. Our ecosystem is balanced. Our conservation programs are well funded. Not all states have what we have here in Colorado and we have hunters and anglers to thank for helping to support it. So if you love protecting Colorado and its natural beauty, go ahead and hug a hunter.
The Wildlife Council oversees education about the benefits of hunting and fishing to Colorado’s wildlife, wildlife management, and outdoor activities in the state. Money for the fund comes from hunting and fishing license fees.
