Pagosa Well-known member.I have a unit 40 buck tag and am planning on hunting in the draws between west creek and Gateway and along the Dolores river.
My question is, if that area is unproductive or there is too many hunters, is there a good parcel of public ground on Glade Park? I have never hunted up there as my family has hunted Gateway for as long as I can remember.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Bowhunter, I have some advice and help for you; I have hunted area 40 many times ; That is when I draw. Just go up the Monument to the Glade park storeturn south and proceed aprox, 8 MilesYou will hit Gravel Road, Continue up till you Pass the Mud Springs Camp ground, There will be a Fork in the road, stay to the right ,Aprox a mile from that intersection you will approach a Kind of overlookand camping to the right ; All the land below the overlook, and the pond is aland swap and legal to hunt, also if you keep going till you see the Cottonwood Resivior SCamp Groung it is all good HuntingGet your Map out and find Little Dominguez Canyon; Great Hunting, The Turkey Trail will take you from the west side to the East Side ResiviorsIf you stay going south uphill You will get to the top and it is private from there on over, Don't Bother going past that point.
Basically there is no way to get fouled up as long as you hunt north From the trailDown hill It is a great big Bowlhere is a mix of Black timber, Aspen trees, You are surounded by the cottonwood resiviors, alot of nice draws, running water. I must say ; Take my adviceIf it snows and or is raining, do not try to drive up to Cottonwood! This road will trap you and your vehiclemost tow trucks cannot get up it to retrieve you.
AnywayAll this area has been very productive for my family. As you see in the photo Galleriethe Mule eer i posted was just one from last year, came from there. Hope this helpsGet the map out and study itit is worth the hunt!

Quebec Canada Black Bear Hunting 2.By Mallory Boyce. When purchasing a big game hunting property in the West, the availability of landowner tags can be an important factor. Landowner programs were established to acknowledge the contribution of private lands to support wildlife and provide a form of compensation to landowners for resources used by wildlife.
Permits or tags are typically available to landowners, family members and others designated by the landowner based on the acreage owned.
Landowners who are absentee owners can greatly benefit from these tags especially when a property is in a game management area that is hard to draw permits. Different states have varied landowner programs that include what qualifies a landowner, property qualifications, acreage requirements, species requirements and other factors.
It is also important to remember that there are land registration requirements and application deadlines that apply to landowners. Landowners must comply with all state laws and requirements to be successful in acquiring tags. Some states provide a Landowner Preference Program that allows landowners to build preference points to increase the odds in drawing a tag.
For example, a Colorado deeded landowner who registers with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, may be eligible for landowner tags if the property is used primarily for agricultural purposes, is inhabited by the species applied for, and they own a contiguous parcel of at least acres.
In addition, based on the number of deeded acres registered, the landowner may be eligible for multiple tags. Colorado also has a voucher system that allows a landowner to transfer a tag to a third party.
In Utah, landowner tags are transferable, however landowners must own at least acres to be eligible. In Wyoming and Montana, landowner tags are not transferable. Wyoming requires that the deeded owner of acres or more be an individual, partnership, corporation or trust or have the property under written contract to apply.
Spouses, parents, grandparents or lineal descendent can use the tags in Wyoming. Montana operates on a landowner preference and sponsor program and requires acres for deer and acres for elk tags. A registered resident landowner deer combination license can be applied for when a landowner is granting access to hunting on the property to a nonresident hunter.
To qualify as a nonresident landowner, a person must own property in fee simple ownership with their name on the deed. Property held in a trust, LLC, partnership, or other legal entity is owned by that legal entity. Permits on properties owned by a legal entity are available only to tenants who either farm at least 80 acres, or manage an 80 acre or larger farm that produces an agricultural commodity such as crops or cattle.
These tags are not transferable. In Nebraska, owning or leasing 80 acres or more of land for the purpose of agricultural production by the owner or leaseholder may receive a limited landowner permit for antelope and deer.
Maximum number of landowner permits allowed for one farm or ranch is determined by the size of the property in acres divided by Owning acres or more of land dedicated to agricultural production may receive a limited landowner permit for deer.

I usually never post anything, but this is an issue that I feel does not represent the everyday, average hunter- like me. It presents a conflict of interest.

Thanks for the info guys. It's a real shame the direction this could be headed, hunting as an activity only the very wealthy can enjoy.

We have the same sort of point-creep in that system as in the general license draw. I agree that the current system isn't perfectand probably never will bebut if you disenfranchise the landowners from a preference in the draw, the results will be pretty predictable.
Speaking strictly for myself, I have never denied access to anyone who appeared responsible and asked permission to hunt. However, if I can't hunt on my own place, then it is highly unlikely that anyone else will be able to eitherand in that sentiment I am not alone. I understand that you are frustrated.
