Colorado BHA Chapter Appoints Paul Painter Denver Metro Area Work Projects Liaison

Paul Painter was named Colorado Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) Denver Metro Area Work Projects Liaison. Paul was born at Chanute Air Force Base, Illinois, but raised in the little Appalachian coal town of Plumville, Pennsylvania, which is about 15 miles from Punxsutawney Phil. Paul is a graduate of IUP, not Indiana University Purdue, rather Indiana University of Pennsylvania. “I’m a computer geek so being outdoors is my release,” Paul said.

“Being raised in Pennsylvania where the first day of deer season is a state holiday, I was surrounded by outdoors activities as a kid. My late father-in-law, though, was my biggest outdoors influencer,” Paul added. “I only occasionally fly fish, and a bit more of pheasant and quail hunting with my daughter and son-in-law in Kansas. 2nd rifle season is when I get together with high school buds for deer and elk hunting.” Paul lives in Parker.

“I have done fence projects with Paul for more than a decade,” Colorado BHA chapter Treasurer Nathan Kettner said. “I think he will be a great addition to the team.” Are you interested in serving on the Colorado BHA Chapter Leadership Team? Learn more about our volunteer opportunities here.
