With over-the-counter turkey tags and the supreme habitat, a landowner is sure to have multiple opportunities during the Spring and Fall seasons. The vast nature of the ranch offers multiple opportunities for waterfowl on the property. The large pond located on the North portion of the ranch is lined with cattails and makes for a perfect roost for ducks and geese. The creek itself holds home to many sand bars which can be seen lined with Canada Geese and ducks throughout the fall as they migrate in from the North. With 6 center pivots the waterfowl flock to fields in the afternoon hours by the 1000s to feed the Alfalfa and Wheat fields.

Fountain Creek itself provides unmatched food, cover, and water for a multitude of species. Whitetail-Deer flourish along the Cottonwood bottoms and use the large agricultural fields on the ranch as destination food source. While Mule Deer roam the creek bottom year round they migrate in during the fall to use the fields and cover of the creek bottom to rut during the fall and winter months. The Elk herds along Fountain Creek travel the thick wooded bottoms and use the crop fields as a food source year-round. The Elk hunting in this part of Colorado is extremely unique. Hunting licenses are becoming more valuable as point creep and hunting pressure continue to be more prevalent in most units across Colorado. However, the Fountain Creek Ranch lies in unit 123 which offers Choice C elk tags. This unit has historically opened September 1st and runs through January 31st . This also allows hunters to choose any legal weapon of take during the season. Choice C tags are also unlimited giving a hunter the ability to purchase multiple tags in a given season.
