I'm a new hunter, and I'm trying to figure out where to hunt. I just got a small game license. I've only been able to go out once so far, and I didn't see anything. I live in Colorado Springs, and I'm looking for places nearby. I went to the Beaver Creek State Wildlife Area. All I found was a flock of songbirds.
I also tried going to the Turkey Tracks Ranch State Trust Land, but I couldn't find the place. Does anyone know exactly where that is? I followed the directions in the brochure, and I also tried looking it up online. The brochure said there would be signs posted, and I didn't see anything. I looked on google maps, and found the place it was supposed to be. There was a ranch there, but it had a different name.
Are there any other public lands near Colorado Springs that I should check out? Are the State Wildlife Areas and State Trust Lands the only public lands you can hunt on, or should I be looking for other places?
