Hunt Results for Kern National Wildlife Refuge, Saturday – 1/29/22

The average harvest of waterfowl at the Kern National Wildlife Refuge for Saturday dropped quite a bit from Wednesday’s great average. Shovelers reclaimed first place for number of birds checked in with Green Wing Teal dropping back to the second spot. The Kern NWR Staff reported that the results for Saturday, 1/29/22 were as follows:

81 adult and 5 junior hunters came away with 80 Shovelers, 2 Mallards, 9 Gadwall, 35 Widgeon, 24 Pintail, 77 Green Wing Teal, 18 Cinnamon Teal, 5 Redheads, 1 Canvasback, 2 Bufflehead, 1 Eurasian Widgeon, 1 Blue Wing Teal, and 1 Ruddy Duck. 1 White Fronted Goose was downed at Kern on Saturday. No Coots were taken at Kern on Saturday. This came out to an average bag of 2.98 ducks per hunter or, with the Goose included, 2.99 waterfowl per gun. Out of 7 reservation cards issued 7 hunters showed on time to claim their spot.

Well, that’s it for the 2021/2022 regular waterfowl season. Junior hunters have one more chance at those elusive waterfowl, on Saturday, February 5th. If you’re a junior hunter or you have a junior hunter in the family you can hunt Kern’s Junior Waterfowl hunt on Saturday, 2/5/22. Here’s hoping the Juniors have a great hunt! If your junior hunter doesn’t have a reservation for the Junior Hunt he or she can still get in on the drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out at the 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.

If you’re a Veteran or an Active Duty Military Member you also have one more chance this season. The after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt which will be held on Saturday, February 12th. 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’re a veteran or active duty military and don’t have a reservation for the veteran/active duty hunt you can still get in on the drawing for the remaining blinds after the reservations are taken care of. Reservation spots are given out at the 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.
