That's kind of what i figured. I was out yesterday up behind my house in Golden and called in 2 within 40 yards, would have been an easy shotgun kill if it wasn't open space land.

Thanks for your help! Ill be sure to post some pics if i get lucky.

Did you happen to see any pheasants or quail when you were hunting down there? Or know of any places near pueblo that have these birds?

I just want to extend my hunting season!

Ha ha! I just saw you show up out on the Pheasant forum too!!! Thumbs up

No phezzies, but I did see a few coveys of quail and quite a few chukars too. The chukars were a few more miles east of Picture canyon anda few miles south of Campo, in the southeastern corner of the "DeWeese" allottment. Which is on the very southeastern slope of the Ute Creek drainage.

There is a gate to the allottment through a farm yard at these coordinates, which is at the intersection of county roads 28 & C. You just drive right through theri yard and they usually have the gate open, but you may have to open & close it.

N37 01.095 W102 35.342

The chukars were just west of this farm yard where they have a bunch of junk & farn equip laying around. Then again just a bit further west from there as you go into the Nat Grassland props. Or, you can cut all the way through that allottment coming from the west beginning at the intersection of county roads 24 & D. You have to pass through a couple of gates and it is quite sandy in a few places so a 4x4 is needed.

GREAT dove hunting here as well! Slammed them while pronger hunting in Sept! Eurasions by the boat load!

Thanks for the reply. That looks rather interesting, I may have to go down and check it out.

Since I posted this I have been looking the the Two Buttes SWA north of Springfield. It looks like it holds some birds as well, and if they aren't cooperating I can always switch to yote calls i guess.

That is a pretty cool area too, but I did not spend much time there. We had some lunch and drove on through.

Should be pretty good though as there is much more water in that spot! Yes
