    No worries, just wanted to shed some light so others don’t end up in a similar situation. I appreciate you reaching out to us and hearing us out. It matters.

    Was at Sac again this morning, seemed the “hunters” were getting it more this morning, lined up well for pre-registration, stayed back until their group of reservations were called to the window. It is called out like reservations 1 thru 5. The staff at Sac was great, very friendly, and the gentleman at the counter was polite and friendly.
    Be sure thank these individuals for their work and being there to keep the refuges open during this period. Do what you can to make their job easier, and keeping them safe as well as yourself.

    There was a sign at the refuge stating what the channel was for the refuge I was at. I have no idea if they are all using the same FM freq.

    Do you think the check station staff is receiving hazard pay? If so, will they get the 3% pension deal?

    This folks are seasonal aids for the Department of Fish & Wildlife for the most part. A few are full time employees that shift over to the check station when fall and winter shuts down their normal duties. I doubt if more than a handful of check station employees will have any pension plan through PERS.

    So, come Chistmas time, some care packages could be dropped off. They should get extra appreciation somehow...

    They are ticket takers...just like at the movies... very few know anything about the refuge its self..and I'll bet ya very very few have ever been out on the refuge, little lone hunt it...So many guys quiz them like they are walking info centers of the secret mallard holes.
