Still needs to be voted on in both houses of Congress. So don't go counting your chickens before they hatch.
If at first you don't succeed, maybe skydiving isn't for you.

Yep... Still needs to be passed In the Senate and the house. Even if it does pass, may take a few days to trickle down to the refuge systems. My prediction is that opening day for NWR will be Wed 9/23/2013.

Still needs to get passed, however, most north valley NWRs check stations, Sac for example are run by the state. I just called the region headquarters, and couldn't she guarantee they would be open, but she did mention there's not a ton of effort to operate the check stations and be ready for the opener- take that as you wish...

I was also told CDFW's website would be updated as soon as they get word, and to check there for updates.

With specific regard to sac, I was told by a FWS employee that the hunt area at sac was in good condition before the shutdown and water, etc, was not a problem.
Duck hunting is a learning experience, if you don't learn something new on every trip you aren't really hunting.
