The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is offering a Wild Pig Hunting Clinic at the Tejon Ranch in southern Kern County on August 1.

The clinic, which is part of DFG's Advanced Hunter Education program, is jointly sponsored by the Pacific Coast Hunter Education Association and Tejon Ranch. Experienced instructors will address pig biology, hunting techniques and requirements, methods for locating wild pigs, locations to hunt, actual field dressing and care of game. The clinic is appropriate for all skill levels, from beginner to advanced.

The clinic will be held at the ranch from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $40 for adults; children 16 years and younger are free but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Participants can register online at www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced or request a registration form by mail by calling (916) 358-4356. Once registered, participants will be provided with a workshop agenda, a map to the facility and a list of items to bring.
