    P.S.- who said anything about hunting levees? I can't think of ANYWHERE it's legal to hunt from a levee. It kinda goes without saying.

    Re read the description of what is open to hunting in the Sutter Bypass Wildlife Area and look at the map of the area.

    http://www.dfg.ca.gov/lands/wa/regio...erBypassWA.pdf

    Here's one example of the levee being open to hunting.

    Public hunting areas:
    The East Channel, East Levee, and grassy berm strip located between the East Levee and outside drainage canal
    The levees are the primary areas open to hunting. If you like the duck hunting you get only in the toe drains, great!
    Sounds to me it was more of you assuming he was breaking the law without actually reading what was written. I read it without jumping to a conclusion and I understood it perfectly.

    You know the hunting is bad when all you take a pictures of is breakfast. Left my camera with Okie. My buddy won't go hunting anymore till Winter real comes. On a good note we were able to reset the blind since it was pointing too far to the left. Tomorrow we will go put on some palms the anchor chain took off.

    I am heading out tomorrow. Hopefully the blues are flying and not sitting around the point. It is frustrating when someone could care less about another Sniffers original post and just go on ad on about the same subject. Better idea would be to start your own post.

    Calamari, Your post was edited by me. You don't need to be condescending to get your point across. If someone is just not getting what you are trying to point out and you feel the need to get awnry about it then maybe just let it go, or take a break from the key board.


    Keep it civil gentlemen.

    Re: Duck Season

    What part of this example is hard for you to understand? Except for only one short short stretch of a couple of hundred yards they aren't county roads and have gates on them that are often closed.

    Here's one example of the levee being open to hunting.

    Public hunting areas:
    The East Channel, East Levee, and grassy berm strip located between the East Levee and outside drainage canal

    Look at the map of the Sutter Bypass Wildlife area. Read the description. Don't look at the map, don't look at the description. I really don't care. I and tons of others have hunted the Sutter Bypass levees for years. Check with a warden at Sutter if you don't believe it. It's very clear in the Sutter Bypass WA description. It tends also to be poor hunting because it is hunted and the birds rise up going over them. Maybe you've got the Sacramento River levees confused with the Sutter Bypass. Just saying over and over again that you're right when the printed regs say you're wrong doesn't work but it's OK with me. Enjoy the toe drains.

    WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG

    Its funny i hunt the bypass every year and i have yet to see someone hunting from the levees.

    the levees are public ROADS! Look them up, they are even NAMED! Hell one portion of the west levee is FRANKLIN ROAD! YOU CANNOT HUNT ON PUBLIC ROADWAYS

    And yes i do hunt in the 'toe drains' along with 99.9% of everyone else.

    MOST people take a boat out, park it along the veg on the side of the bank. Throw a camo cover over you and sit and wait. The ducks fly over the water very low and you can ambush them as they are flying in. Dont know how this would work on the levees as they could see you standing there and even if they were dumb enough to fly right over you getting the bird back would be a b***h
