where to hunt grizzly island duck

 Refuge managers expect good hunting for ducks  in the coming weeks as well, both on the Grizzly  unit of the WA and on the adjoining Crescent unit. At Grizzly Island Refuge, bulrushes provide cover, and  spaces have been cut out for hunters to surreptitiously settle down in on shoot days. Right in  the rniddle of the big open ponds is where hunters  find the most success using decoys. Refer to our Refuge Map.  Locals bring portable blinds that they fortify  with Johnson grass, which will blend into almost  any landscape, and is the favored choice over camouflage cloth.  “Tule seats" made from 2x4s formed in the  shape of a capital “I” will protect you from the  soft, peat ground at Grizzly. Chest waders are a  must.

On the Crescent Unit, sunken two-man pit  blinds are provided, but duck hunters will still need to  bring along a dozen or more decoys for best duck  success. Twelve blinds can serve 24 hunters in the  unit.  Magnum pintail and mallard decoys are the  preferred duck attractors here, and  California duck hunting veterans often bring in several dozen  decoys on a barge. Barges or rafts are pulled over  the shallow ponds with ropes—an ambitious  endeavor, but definitely worth the trouble, locals  assert. Once they find a good hunting spot, the  barges are tipped and sunk to hide them from the  ducks’ wary eyes.


Refuge Duck Hunting  shoot days are Saturdays, Sundays  and Wednesdays and the check station opens two  hours before legal shoot time.  Hunting dogs are highly recommended for  flushing the birds out of the thick tules and also  retrieving the downed birds in dense cover.  lt’s also open season for rabbits on the public  hunting grounds here, and sportsmen should find  plenty of cottontails to shoot at.

Boar hunting private lands in California has several advantages over the public areas. Chief among these are much less hunting pressure, better forage and water supplies and easier vehicle access. It's a fact of life, and if you've never got your boar, hunting on private ranches is almost a sure thing.
