This is actually about my interest in killing a couple pheasants. After I did a lot of research though I found the best place for pheasants is in a lot of the Wildlife Areas and National Wildlife Refugees. I live in Redding. I am also interested in killing some ducks and geese. I figured the waterfowl people would know best on this subject though. I did a bunch of research and a lot of people say that Gray Lodge Wildlife Area would be a good bet for pheasants. I also here about the Colusa and Delevan NWR. What is the difference between the National Wildlife Refugee's and Wildlife Area's. It's been really confusing on how I actually get a permit to hunt these area's? There seems to be so many, and I don't know which ones to look for pheasants at? That's what I need help with understanding. They say they have a lottery ahead of time, and then lottery the night before a hunt and then first come first serve. Also I heard there is some pheasants in the lower Klamath and Tule Lake Refuge. It seems that there is a different process for hunting there too? I know that the type C areas are free, and B and A areas are different. Do they cost? how do you get an A or B area permit? What's the entire process here? Thanks everyone. It's been bugging me, It's getting complicated to hunt.
Grizzly island has some pheasants and all you need to do is go down and buy a type A permit for around 19 dollars.
I used to hunt my old duck club on Grizzly Island. There are indeed a decent number of wild pheasants there. Probably one of your best bets for ducks and pheasant.
THE WORST DAY OF HUNTING OR FISHING IS BETTER THAN THE BEST DAY AT WORK
