Its pretty cheap and the pass shooting blinds sound fun! Maybe we'll see each other out this season huh EXTREMA? Whats the deal with the water blinds? DO they just assign you to a field if your drawn and then you build blinds where ever you want that can be used by all the guys that got drawn for that field too? Could you gimme a rundown?
theduckstpshere: i see what your saying and thanx for the input! If its not worth the money why does your buddy stick around so long? You never shot well at all? Is it all rice? or do they have timber too?
you join for fee plus intiation fee (first year only)
you get a sticker with a number and rhc on it. put it in your windshield and one in your wallet.
you go to meetings and recieve newsletters. they have a trailer space drawing.
if you get lucky you can join a water blind with someone already in one. if not ask if there are openings. i think they have 3 different areas/fields with numerous two man blinds. should be section 36, butler pond and delavan area. you have the right to just your blind for the whole season. the blinds are already sunk in and ready for your decoys. theyre usually in a corner of a square shaped field with one other blind at opposite end.
they used to have a building wher you get breakfast, buy shells and have a drawing for pass blinds.
pass blinds (not sure how many are left used to be 1-61) you have a drawing by putting your membership number on a paper and they draw out of a can. if you don't get drawn your on your own. if you do get a bling you get a copper tag with a number that you choose (first come first serve). so if blind 58 is shooting well and nobody has taken it you can get it. there is a long stretch of road with blinds numbered down it. you go to your blind and wait for birds to cross the refuge boundry. right against colusa refuge line. during pheasant/dove season you may leave your blind and hunt the rice field behind you.
they plant pheasants in many areas. princeton, arbuckle, colusa, williams areas.
had a special deer, pig, dove/quail foothill property. look at the map.
there are also some other fields where you may hunt if not drawn.
bbq's and work parties.
this is how it was a long time ago. it might have changed. i hear it sucks now but i used to have a good time. get an updated map. plus if you like pheasants you will get plenty of those. it's not bad for the price. wilderness unlimited bought all of rhc old properties and clubhouse.you can try them too.
