Colorado Duck Hunting

Duck hunting with Stillwater is available from October through the majority of January. Typically, our best duck hunting takes place from mid-October through the end of November. In mid to late October, many varieties of ducks migrate out of the high country and disburse along the Front Range, where they find an abundance of food sources, lakes, ponds, rivers, and sloughs. Soon our local and mountain birds will be followed by flocks of ducks from Montana, the Dakotas, and Saskatchewan. The most common species are Mallards, Teal, Widgeon, Gadwall, Red Heads, followed by a variety of other puddle and diving ducks.

Your duck hunt will consist of either a morning or an afternoon hunt. Typically, our most productive hunting takes place in the morning, but depending on weather conditions, afternoon hunts can be outstanding. You will hunt one of several private lakes or ponds secured exclusively by Stillwater Outfitters. An experienced guide and a competent retriever will accompany the group (your dog is welcome if you are confident in its ability and control). You and your partners will be hunting from permanent blinds, portable layout blinds, and occasionally from available cover.
