***What does Fort Carson do with your permit fees? (click image to enlarge)
- Camp Falcon is NOT open for hunting
- Attention hunters - Fort Carson is not a Trophy Buck management area. Our deer population has been drastically reduced via over harvest to research several methods to control chronic wasting disease (CWD).
- All persons getting a downrange pass should be familiar with map reading and land navigation prior to accessing downrange areas.
- The current FC/PCMS Regulation 200-6, "Wildlife Management and Recreation" can be viewed by clicking HERE.
- Game Management Unit (GMU) 591 - All Elk and Deer need to be taken to Colorado Parks & Wildlife on Sinton Road for mandatory CWD testing. Elk have recently tested positive for CWD in our area. Deer will also have one lower incisor removed for aging and a DNA sample taken for genetic research on CWD.
- DO NOT ENTER training areas that are not part of the Block on your Downrange Pass.
