Always good to see a picture of Kern....especially that they actually had some water to be open on the opener (which does not happen all the time)! My family started hunting there in the 60's...and my dad had a fatal heart attack there 10 years ago next month. We used to hunt area 1 from a boat and what great hunts we had. I last hunted there 2 years ago...but plan to go back. It is a very special place to me.
