Colorado Parks and Wildlife commissioners raise mountain lion hunting harvest

Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commissioners Thursday set mountain lion hunting harvest limits for 2012.

The commission unanimously approved raising the mountain lion harvest limit for the 2011-2012 seasons by 26 cats to 618, an increase of about four percent statewide. Commissioners also asked staff to return with information and concerns about the use of electronic calls as an aid to taking mountain lions, a change that has been requested in a citizens’ petition.

The commission meets monthly and travels to communities around the state to facilitate public participation in its processes. During the remainder of 2011, the Board will travel to Steamboat Springs in October, Burlington in November and Fort Collins in December.
