Hunt Results for Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt, Saturday, 2/5/22

The waterfowl average take at the Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt resulted in a great average for the Junior Hunters’ attending. Shovelers were found in first position for number of ducks checked in and Green Wing Teal took the second spot. The Kern NWR Staff reported that the results for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/5/22 were as follows:

30 junior hunters came away with 34 Shovelers, 1 Mallard, 6 Gadwall, 20 Widgeon, 16 Pintail, 30 Green Wing Teal, 3 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Redhead, 3 Eurasian Widgeon, 1 Blue Wing Teal, and 2 Bufflehead. There were no Geese or Coots bagged by the Juniors at Kern on Saturday. This came out to an average harvest of 3.90 ducks per Junior Hunter and, of course, with no Geese and Coots to figure in to the total, 3.90 waterfowl for each Junior. Out of 12 reservation cards issued 7 Junior Hunters arrived on time to claim their spot.

If you’re a Veteran or an Active Duty Military Member you have one more chance this season. The after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt which will be held on Saturday, February 12th 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.
