What should we do in the Denver/surrounding area the saturday before the Saints game?
 
I really wanted to do some white water rafting but it appears as if they will no longer be doing trips

any other outdoor ideas? we have looked into fly fishing. We are all male mid 20's so want to do something that involves activity not site seeing

thanks for the help

How about hiking?

In late October you will freeze your balls off rafting.

sell me your tickets and go on a hike

10-04-2012 12:30 PM

:wiggle: The tickets will not be given away!

We really wanted to do something other than hiking, I am looking into guided hunts right now

rafting and fishing are rare activities in late October. Site seeing and public intoxication would be my suggestions

That's a great time of year to do the Denver beer tour. Rent some bikes, see the city, and take in some awesome beer.

Guided hunting but it will cost $ since you are a non-resident. The licenses alone are anywhere from $350 to $1900 per license for big game.

This.

Also be sure to check out Stranahans (colorado whiskey).

I was thinking more along pheasant, the site I am looking at says no license is required for a guided hunt if I am reading correctly

http://www.rmroosters.com/hunt-for-a-day.html


the drinking will definitely take place at night or once our day trip is over but we want to hunt or fish something we can't do down here

Requiem 10-04-2012 12:51 PM

Hit up all the head shops on Alameda. Have your own Up In Smoke tour.

Be a man, climb a 14er.

hmmm.... well, have you ever been to Western Kansas? If you love Western Kansas (flat plains grassland) your gonna love this type of hunt! This is outside Calhan, CO which is SE of Denver, NE of Colorado Springs, pretty much in the middle of nowhere. You will probably still be able to see the Rocky Mountains, but just barely.

Here's hunting license info: http://wildlife.state.co.us/HUNTING/...esAndFees.aspx

If you wanna just stay around Denver and do some easy, touristy type of stuff, maybe do some climbing if it's not too cold (all the type of stuff you don't see down in the Big Easy) here's something you might want to consider:

October is odd in Colorado. Touristy things start to shut down until the ski resorts open in late October early November.

So I'd recommend "fly fishing" with buddies and "camping" at the foot of a mountain. We don't judge here.

If goose hunting is in which I'm not sure it will be I would do that. If not maybe you could get some ducks but you probably don't want to pay to do that if your from LA.

10-04-2012 05:02 PM

We fly in early Friday morning, I think we leave here at 5am. If the pheasant hunt is near the airport may do that Friday afternoon and spend Saturday checking out the breweries and the whiskey that was mentioned.

someone said head shops, how does that work?

and yeah we aren't paying for a duck hunt considering where we are from, really want to hunt something new!!!

regardless of our record, can not wait for the trip, really hoping the NHL gets its **** together because we want to go to the Avalanche game Saturday night

TheElusiveKyleOrton 10-04-2012 05:15 PM

Dude, get one of the brewery tours. They'll squire you around all day, up and down the front range, to any of the breweries you want. Google "Denver beer tours" and see what you find.

Of course, I'm assuming you're a drinker.

10-04-2012 05:27 PM

you assumed correct haha

If you guys get there early and want to tailgate, I am in lot N...

bowtown 10-04-2012 05:41 PM

Shotgun Willies is nice this time of year and there is a La Quinta across the street if things get crazy.

may have to take you up on that. We are all LSU season ticket holders as well and are used to throwing the biggest tailgate you could imagine. We aren't driving though so the tailgate trailers have to stay here
