Notes from the landowner
Rawhide #2 is a DIY goose hunting layout property located outside of Wellington, CO. Within the Central Flyway and in the northern boundaries of the front range, this property sits on approximately 95 acres of alfalfa. This property does not have a pit, but hunters are encouraged to bring a layout blind or a-frame for the best results. Placed directly in the middle of two reservoirs, this property sits in an ideal location; especially because one of those reservoirs will have open all year round. To the northeast is the Rawhide Energy Station, which creates open water roosting areas that will help with hunting in the late season. To the west is Park Creek Reservoir, which will also act as a roost while open water lasts. Access to this property will be shown in the adventures tab of the Infinite Outdoors app upon booking. Infinite Outdoors members should take notice of their exclusive discount to Alps Outdoorz, for all things layout blind hunting related. All parties must be members of IO to access this property, and Colorado state rules and regulations must be followed.
Game and habitat information
Located in the Northern front range of Colorado, Rawhide #2 is an excellent place to target dark geese. The ag fields in this region see high numbers of waterfowl throughout the season. Bird numbers are also influenced due to the close proximity to Rawhide Reservoir cooling pond and Park Creek Reservoir. Mornings and evenings generally tend to be more productive feeding times in the ag fields, due to general geese habits, though mid-day flights are always a possibility. Large, local bodies of water will serve as roosting at night and loafing habitat during the daytime. Cold spells and snow can also increase bird density and feeding activity. Be sure to check Colorado waterfowl season dates and brush up on bird identification.
If there is a lapse in availability, please do not be discouraged to reach out to IO. All calendars are set and managed by landowners, and unavailability is set by them. However, IO is willing to reach out on your behalf, to check on available dates. Other reasons for unavailable dates include biologist recommended hunter/harvest quotas that landowners implement, as well as state season dates not being released.
Layout Blind Hunting
