Hunt Results for Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt, Saturday, 2/6/21

The average bag of waterfowl at the Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt produced a great average take for the Junior Hunters’ efforts. Widgeon took first position for number of ducks harvested but only by one bird over Green Wing Teal which took the second spot.  The Kern NWR Staff reported that the results for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/6/21 were as follows:

39 junior hunters bagged 19 Shovelers, 1 Mallard, 6 Gadwall, 29 Widgeon, 12 Pintail, 28 Green Wing Teal, 21 Cinnamon Teal, and 1 Redhead.  4 White Front Geese were checked in by the Juniors at Kern on Saturday.  No Coots were downed at Kern by the Juniors on Saturday.  This came out to an average take of 3.00 ducks per Junior Hunter and, with the Geese figured in to the total, 3.10 waterfowl for each Junior. No info was given regarding the reservation cards issued or claimed.

If you’re a Veteran or an Active Duty Military Member you have one more chance this season.  For the first time the DFW has authorized an after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt which will be held on Saturday, February 13th at Kern NWR.  Hopefully our Vets and Active Duty Heroes will take advantage of this opportunity.  Here’s hoping our Vets and Active Duty have a great hunt!  If you don’t have a reservation for the Vets/Military Hunt you can still get in on the sweatline drawing, just like any regular hunt day, by showing up at the Kern Hunter Check Station on the Refuge 2 ½ hours before local shoot time and the “sweat line” drawing is performed 2 hours before shoot time, the day of the hunt, also at the Refuge Hunter Check Station.  And, of course, thanks for your service.
