Two duck hunters sit in a duck blind.

It’s the thrill of seeing a high-octane pointing dog slam to a standstill. It’s having a front-row seat as a wetland comes to life at dawn. It’s the chaos of a valley quail covey erupting from cover; the heart-pounding excitement of a tom turkey somewhere in the distance answering your call. It’s the chance to share with friends and family a wild game meal they can’t get in any grocery store, farmer’s market or five-star restaurant.

It’s a national holiday for some that doesn’t show up on any calendar. A day to rekindle friendships, of barbecues and extended family reunions. It’s a day some Californians pick El Centro over El Capitan, when Blythe and Brawley best Beverly Hills, a day it’s better to have hotel reservations closer to Calipatria than Carmel. It’s the single busiest day on the hunting calendar when more Californians are out hunting than any other. It’s the Sept. 1 statewide dove season opener.
