CPW seeks public input on hunting season structure
Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be hosting a meeting in Steamboat Springs from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at 925 Weiss Drive to get input about the structure of the big game hunting seasons for 2015 through 2019.
"We want to hear from sportsmen and other constituents about how the current hunting season structure is working for them and how it can be improved," said Bob Broscheid, director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
The issues that are considered during the big game season structure process include the number of seasons for each species, the overlap among different seasons, breaks between seasons and the beginning and ending dates of hunting seasons. The hunting "preference point" system and totally limited elk hunting units also will be discussed as part of this process.

Justin N. Kvols finishes US Navy basic training
Navy Seaman Recruit Justin N. Kvols, son of Kevin K. and Ann K. Kvols, of Steamboat Springs, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Kvols, a 2013 Steamboat Springs High School graduate, completed a variety of training that included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety.
The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations." This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment.
