Scott Roush is the Deputy Regional Manager of the Northeast Region of Colorado Parks & Wildlife. In this episode, we discussed the pandemic’s effect on the outdoor industry. While Scott’s facts and figures were specific to Colorado, many of the overall trends were not. We covered the increase in outdoor recreation during the lockdown, issues faced by the state due to concentrated numbers of users, trends in fishing vs. hunting license sales, the new requirement for access to state wildlife areas, proposed permitting systems to alleviate pressure on sensitive areas, and more.
