GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Hunting access to the public will expand this Fall, according to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Sunday, CPW approved a 10,000-acre expansion for their Public Access Program. They hope that the added acres will encourage hunters, anglers and others to explore more of the outdoors.
CPW plans to announce the locations of the new land in August, just before hunting season.
“This is one step. We’re going to continue to work hard to provide more public lands so that people can enjoy hunting and fishing. It’s a very important part of Colorado’s economy and we’re glad to see it,” Mike Porras, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said.
This is the first major expansion the public access program has had since it began in 1993.
