Just another way for California to grab a few extra dollars and say they are using it for the betterment of the forests but instead use it for whatever they wish! The link tells the entire BS that they say it is supposed to be used for. The only improvements I have seen are for mountain bike trails. The actually go out and place downed trees over some of the mountain bike trails and then make ramps for the bikers out of them. Amazing!
And no, Sean and I aren't arguing, it's all in the name of good fun! Tomatoes tomaatoes (don’t another way to spell the pronunciation but you should get the jest)
I am looking to start hunting next year here in SC near Julian, CA. It will be my 1st time hunting in Cali (2012)... I grew up in WA and bagged a Elk and a couple of Deer, how is the hunting down here? I know I am not going ot get any areas of yours but can you camp up there during hunting season? The way we do it in WA we have a camp, campo food and just a great time out in the woods... Any help would be great, I am just looking for general areas and hell... maybe some hunting partners. Thanks again.
Welcome Nelson! The hunting down here can be pretty good, if you have the time to put into it. I know guys that get their 2 deer every year, but they work hard at it. There's lots of people, so they usually will scout year round, get off the beaten path and away from the hunters.
You can camp in some areas out there. As for hunting land, get yourself a map of the Cleveland National Forest. There is tons of public land out there. Up near Julian, you can look along Eagle Peak and Boulder Creek Rds. Howver, lots of hunters, and lots of private property sprinkled in there. Be sure of your maps, cause they don't take too kindly to trespassers out there.
As it gets close to the drawing in June, check in with me and I will answer any more questions you may have.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
