The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission — the entity that oversees the State's wildlife agency — is holding its monthly meeting March 9-10, 2016 at Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Hunter Education Building in Denver.
While many of the issues being considered could indirectly impact mountain lions, topics of interest directly related to the species include agenda items:
3. Principles and Ethics of Fair Chase - mountain lion trapping is not permitted in Colorado, but hunters may use a pack of up to 8 dogs to track, chase and tree lions so they can be shot out of a tree at close range.
15. Big Game - Open for consideration of any necessary corrections or administrative clean-ups to regulations previously adopted by the Parks and Wildlife Commission for the 2016 big game seasons, including, but not limited to, game management unit boundaries, season dates, limited license areas and manner of take provisions for bighorn sheep, mountain goat, deer, elk, pronghorn, moose, bear and mountain lion, and regulations otherwise necessary for implementation of the 2016 big game seasons.
