Brighton is a prime spot. It is close so close to Denver that it is tough to find any affordable spots to hunt. You might have married into a hell of a spot.
For blinds, most guys either dig pits or use layouts. If you don't have a layout, it would probably be worth investing in one. I heard Gander Mountain in Northglenn was running theirs 50% off last week. If not, you can always lay on the ground and cover up. That can get pretty chilly though.
