2019-20 waterfowl regs set
California’s waterfowl hunters will enjoy an extra five days of hunting in January in most of the state this coming season, thanks to the Fish and Game Commission’s  approval of a Jan. 31 closing date in the Balance of State, Southern San Joaquin Valley and Southern California zones.

California Waterfowl fought for this change, which will add hunting opportunity during what is usually the peak of the hunting season.
This is the first year the option has been allowed by federal regulatory frameworks.

Camp Sprig summer camps
Our five-day Camp Sprig events are less than one month away. Act now before they fill up. CWA summer camps are broken into three types – Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 camps. Level 1 camps include California Hunter Education certification. Level 2-3 camps assume a certain level of hunting knowledge and are designed for campers who have hunted at least one season.

Survey: Hunters are willing to pay for breeding habitat
Nearly three out of four Golden State waterfowl hunters surveyed by California Waterfowl would be willing to pay a surcharge of up to $5 on their duck and upland hunting stamps to fund nest cover projects to help grow the local mallard and pheasant populations.

This was one of many findings of a survey of more than 1,500 CWA members and supporters last month about their 2018-19 waterfowl seasons and their preferences about regulations and public land hunt programs.

Taking charge of a banquet ... at 17!
As the committee for California Waterfowl’s  Inter Mountain Banquet  in McArthur gathered for a quick photo before the start of its 25 th annual dinner last October, Mackenzie Warnock stood out from the rest of the group. Maybe it was the  Howa American Flag rifle  from the raffle table that she was holding. Or maybe it was the fact that, at 17 years old, Warnock was the youngest committee chair or co-chair in the history of CWA.
