Waterfowl hunting was a primary recreational activity on Humboldt Bay from the early 1900s to the 1970s, and remains popular today.
During the duck season, members of the Humboldt Fish and Game Club would meet at the hunt cabin on the McBride family ranch. They would eat dinner together the night before the hunt. The following morning, members would pair up and hunt at assigned blinds. Hunters would often achieve the limit of 50 birds per day in the 1920s. Limits became more restrictive in the 1930s.
South Bay was - and still is - a focal point for waterfowlers using a variety of techniques. Elaborate to simple, cabins on South Spit, stilt blinds in the bay, scull and layout boats, and Humboldt Fish and Game Club were all well used by local people taking advantage of abundant natural resources.
