Free roam areas on waterfowl refuge sites are accessed via walking, wheelchair, or by any other non-motorized conveyance. See pdf file above for details.


Sul Norte Unit of the Sacramento River NWR has a 1/2 mile packed gravel trail with a hunting blind developed for turkey and deer hunting and is available on a first-come, first-served basis seven days a week. The pad and trail to the blind are packed gravel. The blind is constructed of wood and metal frame, hog wire siding, attached fast grass, and it is brushed with natural material. There are four shooting slots cut into the siding and brush material for natural concealment. For additional access needs, please contact the refuge manager. Visit the Sacramento River NWR hunting page.


Sul Norte Disabled-accessible hunting blind

Standard entry procedures will be followed for disabled-accessible waterfowl blinds:

Hunters need to apply through the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) reservation system to reserve a blind or hunt site for the disabled at Sacramento, Delevan, Colusa, or Sutter NWR. If a hunter is not drawn for a reservation, he or she may still enter the lottery or the first-come, first-served line and will be processed in a separate line for the accessible blinds only.  Click here to see the Mobility Impaired Process.
