Anyone familiar with Los Padres in Calif. for hunting?
I hear there is huntable land there but don't know where to begin with research.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
I harvested two pigs there this late May and early June respectivly. I am going back July 4th through the 6th. Its pretty back up in there and the hills are steep in allot of it. .
It is very accessible if you take your time though. Some parts of it are not as bad as others. Some is extreamly slow going due to thick under growth that now has light due to the last fire up in there. allot of the big trees in this area are gone now. This is free and public land surrounded by private. The pigs were 130 and 90 lbs. Although two of the fresh tracks we saw there were russian and mathamaticly were between 700 to 800 pounds
I need a hunting partner as my current partner had to change his plans for an urgent family issue. I will go by my self if I have to though.
This area also has tons of good deer although I do not have a tag there nor is it anywhere need deer season yet. We did see over thirty very shootable sized deer the very last trip as well as huge mountain lion tracks.
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
