Local Duck Hunting - at 1am
Original post made by Hmmm on Nov 2, 2012
Maybe the shots came from the east side, but in the creek and traveled up the creek in such a way as to sound very close by? Did anyone else hear these shots? Does the police dept's explanation sound like it's only a partial explanation?

Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge is open for waterfowl hunting from October to January. It's part of the core mission of National Wildlife Refuges.
"The Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge contains 10,285 acres of tidal areas and salt ponds that are open to waterfowl hunting every October - January. Waterfowl hunting season opening and closing dates are determined by the State of California. Check the California Waterfowl Regulations each season for these dates. See our hunt webpage for specific information on permits, locations, access, and hunting days on the refuge."

Years ago I boarded horses in a pasture on the eastern edge of the Don Edwards Refuge. Some other boarders used to brag that at Thanksgiving, they would walk up to the migratory geese and wring their necks...and have goose for Turkey Day!! EWWWWW!!!
Indeed, what kind of people do things like that? The same people who shoot ducks at 1:00 am.
