Having grown up in Colorado, I spent a great deal of my youth exploring the state with a fishing rod in my hand, or hunting wild places with my family. Colorado’s wildlife and its varied habitats, and the conservation of those things through hunting and angling are important to me personally. Additionally, outdoor recreation in Colorado is responsible for $62.5 billion in economic output and more than 500,000 jobs in the state.
I’m excited that I will now have the opportunity to work closely with Colorado Parks and Wildlife as a statewide delegate to the Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable. My two-year term began in July, 2018.
The Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable was established to foster information sharing on important issues that pertain to wildlife recreation and management in Colorado. The Roundtable is made up of individual members who represent a broad range of interests related to hunting and fishing in Colorado, including outdoor industry businesses like ours.
I’m very honored to be appointed to serve on the Sportsmen’s Roundtable. Over the next two years, I will work hard to represent the interests of hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts in a way that fosters fair-chase ethics, and the protection of our wildlife, their habitat, and the states’s 23 million acres of public land, which serves as the backbone for our wildlife and outdoor recreation economy.
