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.
