There have been several incidents where people have been hunting from the roads in Wilderness Ranch Subdivision this year and firing guns at animals from truck windows into open fields or treed lots. It is not known if these hunters had permission to hunt on private property or not; what is known is that Colorado Statutes do not allow for hunting from any public road. All of the roads in Wilderness Ranch are County roads, therefore it is against the law to hunt from a road within the Wilderness Ranch Subdivision. Hunting is allowed 50′ from the center line of a public road which would put a hunter into and on private property. If an individual does not have permission to hunt on private property, that person can be ticketed and fined by a Division of Wildlife officer.
A board member went to the County Commissioners to ask for and received permission to post signage at all three of the entrances to Wilderness Ranch Subdivision. The newly posted signs read as follows in Bold Red Lettering:
ALL WILDERNESS RANCH ROADS ARE COUNTY ROADS. NO HUNTING ALLOWED ON ANY W.R. ROADS. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED & FINED PER COLORADO STATUTES.
A special Thank You to the land owner association member who brought this issue to our attention. It is our hope that these signs will deter hunters from breaking the law and help keep people safe in our Subdivision.
