1/26/2015 Brainard Lake Moose, Colorado

 

On January 15th, 2015 the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission held a meeting in North Denver to determine, among other matters, the course of action regarding a Citizens Petition to restrict moose hunting at Brainard Lake Recreation Area, near Ward, Colorado.  A Citizens Group worked with CPW staff to present alternatives to the Commission and I was a member of that group.  Nancy Rynes of Boulder, Colorado headed the Citizens group efforts.

I'm happy to announce that as a result of the petition, CPW has changed the hunting regulations regarding Brainard Lake.  You can read more from Nancy Rynes petition update on Change.org at this web link.

Parks and Wildlife Commission Final Ruling

 

1/7/2015 - A New Year before us.

I've been making a few changes to the web sites these past couple of months, and on the social networks as well.  One thing I've always done is to re-invent my business presence on the Internet every year or so, as the methods and techniques for getting one's message to the public effectively are in a constant state of change.

I'm working on a few new features for publication here.  Hopefully sooner rather than later.  But, please keep checking back with us, as this web site will be updated frequently as we head into the future.

 

 

 

1/1/2015 - Have Camera Will Travel is no longer on Facebook.

I've made a change for 2015.  Facebook is fine for a social networking experience but for photography blogging and articles, it's not quite what I want to be doing with this concept.  After close to four and a half years of presence, I've removed the HCWT Facebook page and will be concentrating my efforts on this web page instead.   Also note, I had a Google + page for HCWT as well, but that was being used even less.

 

For 2015, my mission with this web site is to bring in new readers and use it as a place for writing about photography and related issues.  The internet is a forum for the entire world and doesn't require me to give up my intelectual propery rights like Facebook or Google does.



12/18/2014 - Brainard Lake Moose, Colorado.


I'm researching and getting notes together for an article on the moose killed at Brainard Lake in September.


 

If you were present at Brainard Lake the morning of September 6th, 2014 and have direct knowledge of the incident with the moose, please contact me.

The Colorado Parks & Wildlife  Commission should be rendering some type of decision on the petition that Nancy Rynes has presented, asking for a 1/4 mile exclusion zone around Brainard Lake that allows no hunting within a quarter of a mile from the lake (or something to that effect)

 

For the record, and I know full well that Parks & Wildlife are out there browsing Facebook for anything they can turn up. so here's something for them to read too.

 

The thing that keeps coming back to me is the concept of "Fair Chase" in hunting.

 

Here's a story of a similar nature, which you may find interesting.  I do, so I'm sharing it.

 

The simple fact is that public lands belong to all of us and not just hunters.

 

If you live in Colorado, this is a matter of importance you should consider becoming familiar with.  It involves your personal safety and your personal enjoyment of the outdoors and the wildlife we love to view and photograph.

 

Here are some folks you can contact, and I urge you to do so before the CPW Commission makes a ruling on this, because it's not likely they'll modify their stance after they make a decision.  That decision needs to be made by mid January too, as that's when they have to have their ducks in a row for 2015.
