New to Hunting

I am in Orange County, One of the few consevative counties left in California.
I am just in the process of deciding what I want for my first rifle. (at 24 years of age)
Any advice on getting started, book recommendations, etc. Please pass them along.

Any Cali. hunters?

I'm new to hunting but born and raised in Cali. I currently live in Sacramento. Anybody know of some good places to go in the Sierras or north of Sac near Yuba City / Marysville?

Thanks.

Also, I'm willing to travel a bit to go hunting if anybody ever needs a partner to go with. Right now I only have a rifle for deer / wild pig hunting but I'm going to be buying a 12gauge soon.

Yeah, it is special draw. It was taken during the general season, up in the north east part of the state.

I live in San Diego, im 16, and I want to start. But I have $0, and no clue what to buy, or where to even go to hunt. According to the Juvenile Possession Law I dont think I can even legaly hunt Cry .

Hey, Welcome to the Board. I'm born and raised in San Diego. My understanding is: You CAN hunt, but not alone. It's a lot of fun, have you hunted before?

Thanks for the reply. I too was born and raised here. I havent hunted before, but it does look like fun. How old does one have to be to own a hunting rifle in california?

I have been looking at a few Winchester rifles, as they are the only ones I know lol lol .

I've been looking at the Model 9410 and the Model 70's.

Winchester's are fine. You have to be 18 to purchase rifle/shotgun. 21 for Handguns.

You can use any of these firearms with your responsible parent/Guardian present (Don't know if you can use firearms to hunt with a different licensed adult or not).

To get your hunting license at any age, you need to take an 8 hour hunter safety class (about $10-$15). The most important thing about hunting is to take care of the animals and land around you. They're natural resources that we all share. Oh yeah, and be safe;)
