Duck boat in CO?

Postby GIjake » Sat Dec 01, 2012 11:56 am

Hey guys, I'm military and will be moving out to the C Springs area next year. I have a duck boat that I use to hunt and fish from. I know that the lakes/swamps out there aren't quite what I am use to here in NC or back in AL. Just wondering if anyone hunts from duck boat it there or if I would even use it. Would save me a ton to sell it before I drag it across the country just to park it. Thanks for the help. Happy Hunting.

The problem with a duck boat in Colorado is which lakes are legal for you to do it. Colorado is one strict **** when it comes to gunning ducks in a boat. I believe that currently, only 2 public lakes allow you to hunt on a boat. Definitely bring your boat, just plan to fish out of it.

Thanks for the help. I'm looking forward to hunting in CO. Sounds like its gonna be a challenge. If you cant hunt from a boat on the lake where do you all hunt? Walk in on the ponds, rivers and streams?

Still will have to determine if it worth the hassle to pull a Jon boat from NC to AL to CO along with the rest of family....

I'd sell it. I pulled mine out here from MI parked it for a year and a half and then sold it. I Just didn't need one. There's plenty of ponds and rivers to set up on and most of those are wadable and those that aren't you can't put a boat on legally anyways. The problem I ran into with trying to hunt on a boat on a reservior was that the check station to check your boat in often didn't open until right around daylight when you should already be set up and waiting on ducks.
