Hey guys, can anyone recommend a good waterfowl club to join in Colorado? I'm looking to join a smaller, less expensive club. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Waterfowl haven

Waterfowl haven is a good club with good properties and they kill a ton of birds.

Thanks for the response

Thanks for the response Raghorn. I checked them out, they were a little out of my price range. I ended up going with a less expensive club closer to Denver

Waterfowl club

Just want to know why you wanted to join a club? Are you after both ducks and geese? There are so many good and sometimes great public places to hunt. My most incredible duck hunt of my life came off public property and I have had some great days. 19 Mallard Drakes in about 10 minutes with my buddies. Flocks of ducks coming down the elevator and I mean straight down through the cottonwoods. Fast and furious for sure! But all on Public. I have a friend who was in a club and he could bring one person, so I went with him. Between his and my calling ability, we were getting the birds to decoy on our spread and the other 2 groups got pissed and came and chewed my buddy out for what i guess was hogging all the birds. I didn't keep my mouth shut as usual when I get pissed off. There are tricks to the trade and calling well is just one. We had no robo duck either. The other groups had 2 each. So, basically told them where they could go and my buddy was not invited back to the club. I don't even know why he joined as we always did so well before on public. I figure with the price of the club, I can drive out and have really good hunts. P.M. Me and we can talk about spots to go. What club did you choose?

Hey Bleu, thanks for the

Hey Bleu, thanks for the response. I'm focusing primarily on goose. I joined Backcountry Waterfowl. It's less expensive than the majority of the other clubs here and I've heard good things from existing members. I decided to go with a club for several reasons. One being that I don't live very close to any public land spots. I know that's laziness on my part but the club I joined has multiple properties within 20 minutes of my house so that was a big selling point for me. I'll be able to do a lot more hunting than I would be able to on public land because I have access close by. Another factor is that I haven't trained my dog to retrieve in water so I wanted to hunt fields instead of water properties. From the research I've done about public land, the majority of the good waterfowl properties have water (duh). The properties in this club are field properties with pit blinds which is what I wanted. And the other factor is that all the fields are by reservation and you can choose who you want to hunt with (I didn't want to hunt with other people I had never met). I did some research and talked to some of the club members and I decided to give it a try this year.
