If you are at Fort Carson, you work in the middle of it. The hunting on post is very good. And Rampart Range Road has birds also.

I was stationed at Ft Carson in the early 80's. I've wondered about Turkey hunt'n there, I'd love to chase Gobblers out there. I once chased a coyote with an M113 personel carrier, that was pretty cool[/align]

Its a pain in teh ass to hunt on fort carson. How far up into rampart range are they. I grew up in Nebraska and it's not as high elevation, so I need tipsd on finding the birds and hunting them if you could help me.

Hunting FC isn't so bad, I have been doing it since 92. And I will again this year too. Even though I haven't killed any huge birds down there, there are Rios and Merriams on FC.
But on to Rampart, there are birds from Colo. Spgs. to Denver. They are on the move all the time. I find birds around the Reservoir, Fairish, above the Academy, up by Monument, and up at the north end of the road near Denver. But I find as many hunters as birds. So the pressure is pretty heavy. And the birds are shy. And I see mostly hens and jakes up there. The bobcat and cougar pressure is real up there too, so pay attention up there. The neet thing about hunting rampart is you will see sheep, elk and deer up there hunting.

That's Air Force and it's hard tell'n the chanels you have to go through. I'm sure the hoops are set high.[/align]Ft Carson, at least when I was there had a State Wild life Department field post on base. Allthough there was plenty of wild life in the Cavelry unit that I was in it had nothin to do with hunt'n or fish'n...[/align]

Co. Springs area gets lots of presure check out fremont county lots of turkeys less presure, and not close to the springs but all countys bordering New Mexico west ofI 25 are very good.
