The 2016 Novice Women's Duck Hunt will be held Nov. 4-6 this year, and registration will be opening soon!
This event, held in the Sacramento Valley, is for women who have hunted ducks five times or fewer. It will feature a full day of intensive training on the 5th (shooting instruction and workshops on calling, ID, cleaning and basic cooking), and hunts at three Upper Butte Basin duck clubs on the 6th, followed by lunch at one of the clubs. As we did last year, we'll be sleeping, eating and workshopping at the lovely Casa de Patos.
The only major change this year is that the hunt has officially become part of California Waterfowl's Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program, and all registration will go through CWA's website, instead of this one.
