The 154-acre Cougar Wetland is a series of three seasonally managed ponds located about three miles west of Galt.
 
"The BLM, in cooperation with a variety of organizations, has managed hunts on the area for youth, women, and disabled hunters for over 10 years," said Mark Ackerman, BLM wildlife biologist at the preserve.
 
Hunter success at the Cougar Wetland is variable, with an overall average of a little over one bird per hunter day. However, the area has the potential to provide a quality hunting experience and is big enough for three to four groups with two to four hunters each on a given day, he said.
 
To be considered, all interested organizations must submit a detailed, written proposal by July 20. Information on the ranking factors and the application process are available on the BLM Mother Lode Field Office website at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/folsom.html
 
Written proposal/application packages should be submitted to: BLM Wildlife Biologist Mark Ackerman, Cosumnes River Preserve, 13501 Franklin Blvd., Galt CA 95632. Or via email to mackerma@blm.gov
 
For more information, contact Ackerman at the email above or at (916) 202-2066.
