Strong Finish to Teal Season in Colorado

September 22, 2009.

Colorado's Early Teal season ran from September 12-20.

It goes without saying that some guys had better luck than others — but overall, it seems to have been a good Early Teal season. Hunters up and down Colorado's Front Range have, typically, reported good numbers of birds and plenty of opportunity.

Lots of blue wing teal were in the state for the Early Teal season, with some green wings as well.

Justin Swanson, Membership Director for Colorado Outdoor Sports, started off the teal season with limits on opening day. He also ended the season strong.

"I went out with one of our members to a property we have in southeastern Colorado for the closer. We shot our first two birds at around 7:15am, and both limited out by 9:30."

Looking ahead to the October 3rd opener for regular duck seasons, there's much to be optimistic about. Across the board, hunters continue to report healthy numbers of big ducks, and there should be plenty of teal left as well.

"So far numbers are looking great," reports Swanson. "We saw some hen pintails along with mallards and gadwall. Even some Canadians. We've got members making plans for the Youth Season and expect good hunting to continue through to the regular season opener."
