Hunting Season Has Started

Brielle Sorensen

Hunting season started in late October this year, so Palisade students and staff are excited to get a jump on it. According to Colorado Outdoors, the hunting season has arrived in Colorado’s majestic wilderness, and the season. The region experienced one of the harshest winters in decades, with relentless snowstorms and bone-chilling temperatures. Wildlife in the area endured a challenging period as food became scarce and they faced some of the most severe snow conditions residents had seen in the past 70 years. Therefore this year’s hunts will be a lot warmer with less snow.

 I interviewed Jodi Young, the sports helper for Palisade, about her thoughts on this year’s hunting season and how it is going so far for her. ”I had a hunter on Monday get something, but I didn’t personally because I have a guide business where we usually only take one or two people. Usually, me and my husband take two hunters to some private land to hunt.” I asked what her favorite thing to hunt was and she said, “We like the elk meat more than the deer meat.” Jodi started hunting when she was in high school because you can start hunting when you are twelve but you need a hunter safety card to do so which is by the division of wildlife. In Colorado, the best thing to hunt is elk, deer, bear, and turkey. Hunting is a very controversial topic and Palisade Paw Post acknowledges that by treating everyone equally and not leaning to either side.
