Minimum Acreage for Private Property?

Is there a minimum acreage requirement within Colorado to hunt on with a private property gmu tag?  I know someone with 10 acreas that has offered to let me hunt on.  The left over tag available is for cow on private property within that gmu.

I really do not believe there

I really do not believe there is a minimum acreage requirement in the regulations to hunt on a private property tag. There are practical limitations like if your target species will ever be on the acres you have access to and if you will be able to recover what you shoot. If you think you can get it done on 10 acres, go for it.

No limit

As long as you meet all the requirements for not shooting too close to someone else's home that you do not have permission from and you are not in the city limits. Your projectile cannot leave the property. Also make sure they are not in any HOA that does not allow hunting. You have some homework to do. Just don't call and ask the DOW as you will get different answers. Get it in print!

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks guys for the responses.  I'm going to visit the property and review for all of these considerations... then make a decision as to whether it is gooing to work.

No

No, there is no minimum acreage to hunt on. Just a minimum acreage to apply for landowner vouchers (160). For PLOs, it just has to be private land
