Waterfowl Hunting Information

Hunter and Dog at Low Tide


Important Hunt Updates   

  • Water Levels in Ravenswood R2 - water levels are being raised but are still very low going into the opening weekend. 
  • Porta Potties within the hunt area may not be able to be delivered before opening weekend and we are working with a new company who will get them delivered at the earliest opportunity. We have secured a new vendor contract in order to have more reliable service throughout the hunt season. We apologies for the inconvenience but hope you see an improvement to the cleanliness and frequency of servicing of these temporary restrooms.
  • To obtain a hunt permit, go to Obtaining a Refuge Permit to Hunt in Refuge Areas
