Guided Duck Hunting in California

This fall we are pleased and excited to offer duck hunting as Whifflemaster has teamed up with Doty Outdoors.

Our duck hunts are conducted out of the famed Lambertville area it is located less than one-half mile from the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge.

This area holds thousands of wintering waterfowl. The location itself is all natural habitat included in the Department of Fish and wildlife easement program and was recently (2015) upgraded by Ducks Unlimited for habitat and water delivery.

Many different species of waterfowl use this area as there wintering grounds and we generally harvest a mixed bag of puddle ducks and harvesting geese is a bonus.

We use top notch decoys & gear we have over 100 years of combined waterfowl hunting experience & frequently change / move the decoy setup based on weather conditions

The blind is a 3 man island blind & surrounded by natural habitat & is a short walk from the parking location. Hip boots / waders are a must as you will be walking through water to get to the blind.

We will only be hunting this area 2/3 days a week & offering 2 spots per hunt. SO COME ON OUT & HAVE SOME FUN.

Duck Season Dates

We offer guided duck hunts from October 26, 2016 - January 28, 2017.

Duck Hunting Weather

The hunting weather is cool and dry early in the season, but as December and January rolls around, it's usually colder and very wet. Be prepared for anything, and plan accordingly.

Hunt Expectations

Our goal for the past twenty years has always been the same - provide you an outstanding experience, and create memories that will last you a lifetime.

We invest our resources in quality properties, decoys, blinds, and other gear to maximize your hunting experience. We also invest our time behind the scenes to actively manage our fields, properties, as well as continually fine tune our hunting skills and strategies.

Hunting Variables

Simply, we proactively manage the hunting variables under our control to encourage your best hunt possible. Along those same lines, there are some things we cannot control, such as bird activity / behavior or weather conditions. These uncontrollable variables can both positively or negatively influence shooting opportunities, also known as "ups," on any given day.

As part of your overall experience, our objective is to create as many quality shooting opportunities as possible during your hunt. Of course, you are responsible for pulling the trigger, and connecting with the birds which we hope will be a lot!

The End Result

In the end, you can expect we always strive to provide you the best hunting experience possible, and maximize your opportunities. We look forward to hunting with you in the field soon.
