Take an interested person hunting?

Postby terenceb » Tue Nov 05, 2013 7:18 pm

Hi Everyone,

A friend of mine is interested in duck hunting and was wondering if he could just accompany me and my other friend on a duck hunt to see what it's all about. We wouldn't let him shoot or do anything but observe and stay hidden so he doesnt scare our birds.

I was wondering if this would be permitted, or if he would still need a Hunters Ed. class and Hunting License. I thought I read somewhere you could bring up to 2 non-hunters with you, but was not 100% sure this is the case.

Would this be allowed? Thanks!

Just go over water your lawn and make him roll around in it for 30 minutes before sunrise... That should be fairly close to what duck hunting is all about and not have to spend any money.

But really... Refuges as a non shooter he will need a lands pass or a valid hunting license is the way I read the rules. If think the easiest way would be a non refuge pond tho.
Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.

He doesn't need any type of pass or license. Took my brother to colusa for the opener so he could see what it was about

Once last season I forgot my licence and season pass in my heavy coat, the worst part was I was hosting a Bay Area hunter and had all the decoys and gear with me, this was at Yolo, they let me in as a non-shooter so that my hunting buddy could still get a hunt in.

They sign in with you at the check station getting a non-hunting pass, there's no cost.
