Colorado Canada Goose Hunting

Experience Canada Goose hunting “like you read about”. This is goose hunting the way it was meant to be — classic decoy gunning with birds close and committed to your spread. Stillwater Outfitter offers some of the finest decoy Canada goose hunting in North America. You will be hunting near Ft. Collins, Windsor, Greeley, Longmont, Brighton, and Denver, Colorado. We hunt over 25 locations that consist of corn, wheat, barley, alfalfa, water, and occasionally over frozen lakes and ponds. You will be provided with an experienced guide, decoys, pits, blinds, dogs, and any other equipment necessary to bring big Canada geese within easy gunning range.

Greeted by a resident flock of approximately 20,000 Giant and Greater Canada geese, open water, and abundant food sources, waves of migrating Canada’s will arrive in first part of November and will spend the winter here, returning in mid-March. The early arrivals are typically the short grass Canada’s (four to six-pound birds). On the heels of the early arrivals are geese from the high line flock (eight to twelve-pound birds), these are the birds that make up 80% of Colorado’s wintering flock. This trend continues through the end of December into the first part of January.

Question: “When is the best time to come?”

This is the most frequently asked question and the easiest to answer.

Answer: “Your odds of success are good throughout our entire season.”

Many areas across the country you hope to hit the migration just right, you can end up a little early or the old “you should have been here last week” story can greet you. Surrounded by thousands of birds on a daily basis can be a blessing as well as a challenge. With our experience and strict management practices, your odds of success are as good as you will find anywhere in North America.
