Hello everyone,

I just moved to Colorado Springs and have been reading up to see what the flight is like down here. From what I have read, the majority of peole hunt the northern part of the state. I am coming from central South Dakota where every body of water is capable of producing a limit of green heads so to hunt the foothills of mountains is quite a new experience for me. I just was curious about bird numbers and how long they typically stick around. Any information would be great, Thanks!

The ducks are here pretty much all year it seems. There are tons of teal in early Sept. and the numbers continue to increase as the season goes on. Millions of Canada Geese too that wil start getting into large numbers in the next couple weeks

I remember my first season of duck hunting I shot a handful of Golden eyes and have not shot one since. It seems that they are the type of duck that wants to only sit down with their own kind.
