The first split of the 2006 Colorado Duck & Goose season has come a gone. Tempretures were in the high 80’s throughout the entire first split. This kept our geese close to the roosts and very inactive. While geese were staying close to home the ducks were available in impressive numbers. Many of our hunters switched to duck hunting and found early season duck shooting like you read about. Be sure and check out the web site for success photos for this years Duck and Goose hunts.
Opening day for the second duck split is November 3 2006. This looks to be one of the best duck hunting seasons Colorado has seen in years. We have more lakes, ponds and sloughs than we’ve ever had and there all holding ducks. Give us a call and we’ll get you right in the middle of em.
The regular Goose Season starts full time November 25 2006 and goes through February 18 2007. The forecast for Canada Geese wintering in Colorado is projected to set new records. We’ve added some new prime time locations to our inventory for this goose season and we’re looking forward to another banner year. Don’t forget, Jeff Foiles of Foiles Migrators will join Team Stillwater in January and February and will be guiding goose hunters for Stillwater Outfitters. There are only a few days left to hunt with Jeff and his film crew so don’t hesitate to call if you would like to hunt with one of the biggest names in the waterfowl industry.
As I write this newsletter, we’re only a few days away from kicking off Stillwater Outfitters first season of rifle deer hunting in Colorado, Kansas, & Nebraska. The prospects look fantastic. We have two archery hunters on the 70 Ranch right now, and they’re seeing lots of deer each time out, just waiting for Boss Hog to walk under their stand. Colorado’s Plains Deer rifle season starts October 28. I’ve made numerous trips back to Kansas & Nebraska networking, scouting, setting stands and getting ready for the Nebraska Rifle opener November 11 and the Kansas opener November 29. I’m amazed at the numbers and quality of deer in both Kansas and Nebraska. We booked solid this year and are going to add some lodging to accommodate a few more hunters in 2007. It’s not too early to get your name on the list for next season, spots are very limited. Keep your eye on our web site for pics of the bucks that will come from all three states this season.
Be safe and good hunting Mark “Beamer” Beam
