Notes from the landowner
Boxelder #15 is a DIY goose hunting property that is located northwest of Wellington, Colorado. This property is a corn field in the center of a cluster of other agricultural fields, covering almost 75 acres of prime waterfowl hunting ground. With plenty of open ground, food, and water nearby, geese are sure to be in the area throughout the season. Provided in this property will be a 6-man pit; though there will be no seats provided, so hunters will need to bring their own chairs or buckets. This property is between the Rawhide and Park Creek reservoirs, so hunters can also expect to see geese flying to and from these bodies of water, which happen to be some of the only ones in the area. All participants of the hunt must be current IO members. Hunters must also abide by all state of Colorado regulations, including but not limited to, licensing, limits, and method of take.
Game and habitat information
Boxelder #15 is a corn field that is sure to see plenty of geese during the season. The front range of northern Colorado is an extremely popular spot for dark geese to reside in, due to plentiful corn and other food, and nearby water sources for roosting and loafing. The hunting here will be great in the early season when birds initially arrive in town, as they will be uneducated and not yet pressured. Hunting later in the season is sure to still be a very viable option for hunters of all ages and experience levels, especially as cold weather will push new migrations of birds into the area. Visit the Infinite Outdoors blog to read more information about hunting geese in the front range of Colorado, as different methods will be effective at different times throughout the season!
Drivers should stay under 15 MPH on private roads.
