History will repeat itself. The DOW was combined with parks from 1963 to 1972 and it didn't work then and will not work today. Gov. Hickenlooper doesn't realize the differences in the mission of the DOW and the Div. of Parks. This is merely a money grab. The DOW is a self sustaining entity, paid for by the hunters and fishermen of this wonderful state. Div. of Parks is always been under funded and never self sustaining. By combining the two entities, it will only take money away from the DOW, one of the only government entities that CAN balance its budget. I urge the sportsmen of this state to rally and oppose this merger . . . that is unless you want to see the money that manages the nation’s largest elk herd, the fish in Colorado’s streams and river, the native species that call Colorado their home, go to dog parks, picnic areas, and campsites with Wi-Fi internet.
