GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Colorado wildlife officials have scheduled seven public meetings across the state this spring to gather feedback on a plan aimed at increasing mule deer populations.
The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reports (http://bit.ly/1imXfA9 ) mule deer populations have declined across the West, and in Colorado, they have dropped below targets set by wildlife managers.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, along with the nonprofit group The Keystone Center, hope to bring together sportsmen, landowners, outfitters, biologists, wildlife managers, as well as other state and federal agencies to discuss possible solutions to the problem.
