The hunts are for women only and include overnight lodging, meals, guide, California Waterfowl membership, loaner gear if needed and more. Each blind will be staffed with a California Waterfowl volunteer guide. The guide will take care of waterfowl identification, regulations, gun safety, bird retrieval and game calling.  To register, CLICK HERE.
