What's Included

QUIMBY ISLAND: This 789-acre property is located in East Contra Costa County between Mandeville Island, Frank’s Tract, and Holland Tract in the heart of the California Delta. The property was farmed to corn until it was enrolled in a federal wetland conservation easement program in 2012 and restored to managed wetlands by California Waterfowl staff. Habitats consist of seasonal and semi-permanent wetlands, riparian and grassland areas. The fertile peat soils grow wetland plants and trees like no where else in the valley, producing impressive stands of smartweed and watergrass intermixed with lush willow thickets that attract large numbers of waterfowl. The hunt will take place either in the morning or afternoon depending on weather conditions. All hunters will be transported to the island by boat. Hunter Capacity: Three hunters Hunt Dates: Dec 17
