Colorado wildlife officials say big game animals continue to roam forests hit hard by wildfires in western Colorado this summer and hunters are still welcome to take aim during hunting season.

Creede-area wildlife manager Brent Woodward says many animals survived and fish are still swimming in the Rio Grande.

According to the Alamosa Valley Courier, many hunters have contacted officials to find out if hunting is available this season.

Officials say some hunters have decided to turn in their tags and skip this season or change hunting areas.
