Colorado Division of Wildlife Goes 0 for 8 on Big Game Draws
The Colorado Division of Wildlife failed to meet their deadlines on all 8 big game draws in 2007. The draw results were posted late for Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, Moose, Mountain Goat, Desert Bighorn Sheep, Elk, Deer, Bear, and Pronghorn. Other Western states routinely meet their deadlines, making missed dates very rare. The uniqueness of this accomplishment makes it all the more noteworthy, clearing establishing CDOW's draw system as one of the poorest in the West.
There was no public statement from the Division on why they are unable to meet their dates, or how they plan to improve performance next year.
