How many blinds are @ yolo????

Postby duxnbass » Mon Nov 04, 2013 4:43 pm

Its been about 10 years since I hunted there and I don't quite remember how many blinds there are? Trying to find a map of them but can not seem to find one of the numbered blinds......

There are 16 blinds spread out over 4 ponds

As with some refuges, and especially Yolo, the shooting, with good results, really picks up in the later part of the season.
I'm not saying; Don't go, because some serious recon will serve you well later in the season and for years to come.
In my long hunting history, I've hunted several areas before they even became state or federal refuges and based on my previous experiences in those conversions, I have a feeling Yolo can/could/will become a world-class destination in the years to come.

It's all about habitat. Heck, ANY of our refuges could be a world class destination.

Are they? No.

Why?

That's a tale of money and influence... And most of us have neither.
All this for a bowl of borscht.

I used to hunt Yolo quite a bit back when it first opened all the way up to the point where there were 400+ names on the lottery list, I have had good and bad days both blinds and free roam but I have been off the refuges for about 7 years and belonged to a club, I haven't forgotten everything but it is a little fuzzy after that long of a break. I finally drew this year 16th and the 17th @ Yolo and was hoping to get a blind at least one day and its November so any birds in the bag will be appreciated I'm prepared for a slow day if that's what it works out to be.

I left my 4-5 bird average neck of the woods to stare at ghetto downtown sac all morning without firing my gun. :fingerhead:
