IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. — On eastbound Interstate 70, just before of the twin tunnels, it’s hard to miss. And if you are hunting or fishing in Colorado, you better stop.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, formally the Colorado Division of Wildlife, is conducting one of the largest wildlife check stations in the state’s history.
More than law enforcement officers from eight agencies in three states are operating near Idaho Springs for a 48-hour, round-the-clock fish and game checkpoint.
They’re searching cars, trucks, campers, trailers and coolers for any game and fish violations.
The temporary wildlife checkpoint will be shut down Wednesday at noon. The total cost of the operation was not revealed.
