or ask a wildlife expert for advice, stop by the International Sportsmen's
Exposition, which runs Jan. 27-30 at the new Colorado Convention Center.
The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will have a staffed booth,

about outdoor wildlife recreation opportunities.
On Saturday, Jan. 29, from noon to 4 p.m., several members of the
Colorado Wildlife Commission, including Rick Enstrom, Bernard Black,
Ken Torres and Chairman Phil James, are scheduled to be at the booth
to hear public suggestions and concerns about Colorados wildlife,
as well as trade great fish stories. At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, DOW aquatic

tank to talk about fishing regulation review and fish management topics.
On Sunday, Jan. 30, in the Hunting Theater from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m.,
DOW staff will conduct a presentation on successful elk hunting in
Colorado, followed by a question and answer session. Whether

co-exist with wildlife, or enjoy watching wildlife, well have
the answers for you at our booth, said Dave Seeber, marketing
coordinator for the DOW. This event is a great educational experience
for the whole family.

volunteers will be on hand to distribute current hunting and fishing
brochures and answer questions. Free, collectable wildlife trading
cards will be available to children.
