We are now accepting registration for the 2012 hunt!
Registration is now open for the 2012 Novice Women's Duck Hunt!
Here are the key details:
> It's Friday Nov. 9 through Sunday Nov. 11.
> The first night and the whole second day will be at Red Bank Outfitters in Red Bluff, just like last year. That's where we'll do shooting instruction, as well as workshops on duck calling, duck identification, duck cleaning and duck cooking.
> The duck hunts on Sunday the 11th will be at private clubs in the Butte Sink, which has legendary hunting. And new this year: We're adding a pheasant hunt on Sunday afternoon - two birds per hunter!
> The cost is $260 per hunter. This is strictly to cover food and lodging - everything else is still being provided by volunteers, from the workshops to the duck hunts.
> The cap is 15 hunters, so if you want to go, sign up soon to guarantee your seat. Even if it fills up, though, you should register so we can put you on a waiting list in case anyone cancels, or in case we get an opportunity to add more seats in duck blinds.

Also, stay tuned here as we continue developing plans. Co-organizer Judy Oswald and I have a lot of cool stuff in the works. You can sign up for email updates using the subscription feature in the upper right-hand corner of this website.
Finally, if you have any questions that aren't answered here or elsewhere on this site, please feel free to email me or Judy.
See you soon!
