Any Cali. hunters?

Thanks OZSTRIKER, I decided to download the Model 70 manual, just to get a closer look at the gun. The manual must have been shot or somthing, lots of red. I'll look up about the license and the safety class.

Also, where are some hunting fields (or whatever they are called lol ), I tried doing a search but was un-succesfull.

Any Cali. hunters?

Well, the problem is that you live in California, and almost worse, San Diego (although much better than San Francisco!) - And it's all run by a bunch of hunter-hating, bunny-humping, brush hugging idiots.

None-the-less, there are a few areas to hunt in San Diego. You should check out the BLM website and Cleveland Nat'l Forest website (links are on the DFG website) and order two maps: BLM maps for San Diego and Cleveland Nat'l Forest Map. That should get you in the right direction.

Most of my hunting is elsewhere.

What type of animals do you want to hunt?

Yea I kinda figured, thank goodness im moving out of state in 2006.

Well, I guess maybe deer, and rabbits(+smaller things.).

As for the maps, this is the only thing I could find: http://www.ca.blm.gov/elcentro/ESDRMP.html

Any Cali. hunters?

I am from the San Fernando Vallley. I hunt mule deer and am hoping to be drawn for elk, antelope, or maybe bighorn. I varmint hunt and am going to start predator hunting again this year. Most of the people I work with are not hunters but they enjoy my hunting stories. Naturally some of them tell me hunting is sick as they eat their hamburgers or steaks. I am proud to call myself a hunter.

Any Cali. hunters?

I just found this site and I’m hunter in SoCal., Orange County, haven’t been hunting in a long time. Well since my black Lab died.

I use to hunt in New Mexico, but haven’t done much big game hunting in California. I heard too many horror stories about opening day crowds and also getting harassed by ignorant anti hunting folks.

Maybe I can get the old juiced flowing by talking to you guys and get out there again.

Northern California Hunter checking in...

I live in Santa Rosa (although just recently moved here from San Jose) and hunt primarily small game.....Rabbit, Squirrel, Dove, Pheasant, Quail. The only big game that I've gone after and currently have an interest in are pigs.

This place is the closest thing I've found to an actual California Hunting Forum and it looks like alot of others have found it too. Are there any other online resources for us left coasters?

Lastly, being new to Sonoma County I really have no idea as to where to hunt here and would love some advice on it. Found a place in Napa county and tried some rabbit hunting there with a shotgun last weekend to no avail. I'd love to know of some places within a reasonable drive that I can rabbit and/or tree squirrel hunt with a rifle. The spots I've found locally only permit shotguns.

My tools of the trade:
Enfield - No.1 Mk III - .303 British - Bolt - Sporterized Stock (Wild Boar)
Ithica Model 37 - 20 Gauge - Pump (Rabbit, Squirrel, Dove, Quail, Pheasant)
Marlin Model 717M2 - .17HM2 - Semi (Rabbit, Squirrel)
