    Drew a reservation for Volta on opening weekend. I’ve never hunted there before and am reaching out for any tips. Is it assigned blinds? free roam? Any parking lot suggestions? Thanks.

    Invite someone who knows the refuge. Make a friend. Better than internet scouting.

    great second post. I was planning on being there sunday but I think something else better just came up. Look at a map.. pick a pond that is flooded (flood up map available online) then pick a back up in case it is disked or taken.. and go to said pond. Thats how I did it.. except I still chose the disked pond.. in the heat.. nasty volta water.. leaky waders.. I still stink

    If you ressie is for Sunday go Saturday and talk to folks checking out. You will gather plenty of information to dial in a good spot. There are also flood up maps on the CDFW site that give you a lowdown on where the water is.

    If your ressie is for Saturday it won't matter where you go. Just find water. There will be plenty of birds there as there always is on the opener.

    First one of the year should get a prize, I've always said. Bonus points for someone with less than 10 posts.
