What to Expect on a Hunt:

We want our clients to expect nothing less than a guided hunt with everything from decoys, calling, and hunt location to be provided. In return we do expect our clients to set out decoys the morning of the hunt, and to clean or take their own birds harvested.

Hunting Clothing to bring:

Although warm camo clothing is not required here at Front Range Guide service we do highly suggest it or recommend base colors or camo clothing when hunting at pit blinds or ground blinds. Clothing and layering should be appropriate based on the conditions.

What To Bring:

Hunters must bring their own shotgun (plugs required), shells (preferably three inch two shot but it must be steel), and their own provisions of food and drinks for a full hunt’s duration.

Required Licenses:

Hunters must have a small game license, youth small game or combination license, federal duck stamp and a Colorado Waterfowl Stamp to hunt waterfowl as well as a current Colorado HIP number.

Are Client Dogs Allowed?

Clients dogs are more than welcomed here at Front Range Guide Service, but the only condition that we require is the clients dog must hold steady until released to retrieve otherwise it is up to the guides judgment if the dog is allowed to hunt during the guide trip.
