Hunt Results for Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt, Saturday, 2/4/23

The waterfowl average bag at the Kern National Wildlife Refuge Junior Hunt resulted in a great average for the Junior Hunters in attendance. Shovelers appeared in first position for number of birds bagged with Green Wing Teal taking the second spot. The Kern NWR Staff reported that the results for the Junior Hunt on Saturday, 2/4/23 were as follows:

27 junior hunters took home 41 Shovelers, 6 Gadwall, 4 Widgeon, 6 Pintail, 20 Green Wing Teal, 11 Cinnamon Teal, 1 Ring Neck, 1 Scaup, and 2 Bufflehead. 2 Greater White Fronted Geese were checked in by the Junior Hunters at Kern on Saturday. No Coots were downed by the Juniors on Saturday. This figured out to an average take of 3.41 Ducks per Junior Hunter or, with the Geese figured into the total, 3.48 waterfowl for each Junior Hunter. There was no information given on reservation cards issued or claimed.

If you’re a Veteran or an Active-Duty Military Member you have one more chance at Kern this season. The after season Veteran/Active Duty Military hunt which will be held on Saturday, February 11th 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. Additional information may be obtained by calling Kern’s office at (661) 725-2767.And, of course, thanks for your service.
