I call the DOW today... the guy I talk to basically told me "go get a refund"... nothing but private land in those units. The book had some units listed as "private land only", but not these so we figured there would be something..
Oh well, we will get our money back and shift the focus to pheasant
hopefully this post will hope someone in the future thinking about hunting these units.
Thanks Adam. I was about to go and purchase a license for that area today. I am glad I researched it first! I am new to hunting in Colorado, so I was pretty excited to get in the woods. Now that I know it is mostly private, I will contiue my search. Good liuck with the pheasant!
I braved the 461... only to be let down. We hunted the small bit of NF on the north side of the Platte River, about 4 miles NE of South Platte. The area is not hunter friendly-- only very steep, rocky slopes-- and not much public land AT ALL.
Anyway, this was my first CO big game hunting attempt-- can't wait till big game season next year...and small game season!
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
