    I just called and confirmed this. . . I was actually surprised by it too. I've been told (in the past) that I can dispatch an immobile, dying and suffering animal if I can do so safely and accurately (not increase its suffering!). . . apparently not, per reg/code.
    Good stuff to know!

    That's making an assumption the the caller is a safe operator of a fire arm on the part of the state agency. Most assumptions are out the window these days. Too many hungry lawyers and irresponsible people.

    In Colorado, only a "official" can safely and humanly dispatch an injured animal?

    Funny my brother hit an elk near Pagosa Springs one night and totaled his SUV. The officer on scene took six rounds to finally put the struggling elk out of misery. She just kept shooting. My brother told me he thought at this rate she will have to reload.
    Fortunately my brother was not injured thanks to the airbags.

    There is no way I'd do this.

    Man these 174 sleds are kinda long after all, eh? Lol...

    Took it out for the first time today. Harder to get the nose up than the 163" for sure, but it basically just tractors through everything in its path and mows over snow banks and generally speaking is a tank.

    I want to turbo it, but I think that'd be too much :)
