Colorado River Indian Tribe

Anyone here hunt the CRIT? I hunted the river last year out of my 16x52 allweld with 24hp beavertail and had good success but wanted to see if anyone has hunted there this year. IM me if you want to trade field reports.

CRIT is holding birds for sure. You will just have to get out there and scout to see where they want to be. 24 hp mud motor on a 16x52 ? Sounds like your under powered a bit. How does that 24 work when you have 2 or 3 hunters in the boat with gear? Not being a smart ass, just curious. I had a 35hp Briggs & Stratton

With 3 guys, gear and 2 dogs, it's a little slow moving up river, but I have never had a problem. Do you know what the water level is like? Abnormally low, normal, etc.? A few thousand birds have left the lakes I hunt here in NV a few weeks back and I was hoping they followed the Colorado. The migratory push seem to have began. New birds are in up here. Let me know your thoughts.

I had a friend hunt near by there and himself and three guys limited last weekend by 8:30 am> Said it was a dream hunt.
As for the water level, I dont know. I would assume it is low considering we are in a sustained drought? I would try to find a slough across from one of the agriculture fields and set up there

Yes, the rev pass is around $100 but its valid for a full year. They follow all other federal duck regs.

Nice. Dream hunts are always nice and in the desert, chasing the flying creatures from the North is always a challenge. Thought my boss was going to let me off today and I was going to head down there for the morning. Nope, stuck in a trailer while all other Union hands are at home.
