Any chance these recent storms allows higher hunter capacity ?

I spoke to Nick Stanley (manager of Kern NWR) yesterday. He said that they might be able accommodate a few more hunters before the season is over, but he could not increase the reservation quota due to uncertainty of the water situation.

Good luck in the field!
