Everyone planning on spending time in the outdoors in Colorado now have a leg up on the competition with the new hunting & fishing atlases from Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Every state has some type of literature centered around that year’s regulations for hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. For years sportsmen and women all over the country pick up a copy of outdoor literature from their local retailer to ensure that their favorite outdoor activity is in line with local laws. Fishermen and hunters in Colorado, however, have an advantage over the rest of the country thanks to the hunting and fishing atlases available through Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife has created a hunting atlas that can serve as a powerful tool for the thousands of big game hunters throughout the state. The atlas offers several different mapping layers, with information ranging from areas with high concentrations of wildlife, big game migration routes, private land boundaries, topographical information, and much more. It also offers species-specific information, and can also display all hunter-relevant info with a given distance of a mouse click.
Colorado’s fishing atlas offers information similar to the hunting atlas, including boat ramp locations and stocking locations, as well as locations for more remote fly fishing and even ice fishing. The atlas also offers fishing-relevant land boundary information.
The possible uses for these fantastic tools are endless. The layers that display road maps and backcountry road access are a great tool for hikers or campers as well, and the boat ramp locations displayed in the fishing atlas can be a great tool for recreational boaters. Each atlas also displays locations for Colorado Parks & Wildlife, U.S. Forestry Service, and other relevant agency offices.
