    There's a blind near mine that has been on the CWA hunt program for years. It was on the first come first program I believe and was a three day a week shooter. This blind was donated by the landowner because it's a marginal blind and rarely shoots well. What they don't tell the applicants is that the blind is often hunted on the other four days. I can't say positively but I was told by a friend who hunts the same field that the blind was being hunted by CWA management and staff. I do know that the blind was occupied almost seven days a week late in the season. I don't have a problem with CWA staff hunting the blind but maybe the members applying should be made aware of that fact.

    I have been to a few CWA hunts and have enjoyed every one of them. You got to pay to play, I have given more $ than I want to recall for the opportunity for the hunts but it was well worth my money spent. I will keep doing so because I do believe that CWA is a good organization to give to for CA waterfowlers. The educational camps, Veteran hunts, Women camps are the big reason I continue to support CWA. Here are a few photo's I have taken on my CWA hunts. Thank you CWA. Brad

    CWA allows me to get the whole family in the blind and I really appreciate it.

    They also let you chase other birds when the ducks wont show.

    C77E3BD0-EE2F-4E9C-AC94-1B32E9EF13D6.jpeg I’ve been a member of CWA for as long as can remember. There may be some issues but rarely are organizations perfect. They will always continue to get my support just due to one hunt last year which was the highlight of my oldest son’s junior hunting life.

    On second thought, this sounds more and more like a terrible organization to support.... Almost as bad as those DC crazies marching to protest today...

    That's my friend Mike, donating his time to help get some women hunters started out the right way on Pheasants. Probably running one of his famous Munsterlanders, one of the few in the US. Mike has donated his time year after year for this CWA Ladies Pheasant hunts, along with Larry, George and others.

    It wasn't cancelled due to weather, flooding or anything exigent. I was contacted by the folks running the hunt and was told the hunting was lousy and would reschedule when the birds were in. Pretty cool of them, I thought. But never got rescheduled. I'm sure I still have the email correspondence. But in all honesty, didn't and don't care that much to press the issue... But I won't apply for the hunts anymore, simple as that. I'm sure my small contribution is no major loss.
