having loaded guns in a vehicle on a public roadway


Why would you need to load your hunting rifle while driving to the hunting area? :\
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Idiots that hunt exclusively from a car, if they can they will shoot from inside the vehicle. Lazy, poor excuse for a hunter in my opinion. I'm off this next weekend to hunt, about a 15 mile hike in and spike camp and hunt from there. 7-10 days out far from anyone. Pure slice of heaven.
I'm no suture for my future.

Even though the hunting season hasn't really opened up near the Sierra yet, a gentle reminder about wearing bright colors. It has opened on the coast (A zone).

Just bumping this thread as the season opens. Be safe.

As the hunting season opens, remember to dress brightly if you go somewhere someone might be hunting: http://cdfgnews.wordpress.com/2014/09/1 ... ning-soon/

I tried 3 different ways to get the links to the season links that are listed in the quote below.. no dice. so reference the link above to see if you're in a hunting zone before you go.


Fall General Hunting Seasons Opening Soon

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) would like to remind hunters that California’s fall general big game hunting seasons are right around the corner.

The upcoming California general deer and bear seasons are some of the most popular hunting opportunities in the state. With weather cooling off and leaves starting to turn color, autumn in California is a great time to be in the wilderness. General season opening and closing dates vary by zone and can be found by following the links below.

Californians enjoy some of the widest ranges of habitat and hunting conditions in the nation. Hunters can pursue black bears in the redwood forests of Humboldt County, or mule deer in the high desert of San Bernardino County and everything in between. While California has its fair share of privately-owned land, there are vast swaths of national forest, timber lands, state wildlife areas and other lands accessible to the public that provide excellent hunting opportunities. CDFW also offers hunts on private lands through its SHARE Program and Private Lands Management Program.

In addition to big game, fall upland game seasons include quail, pheasant, wild turkey and grouse. The California Fish and Game Commission also recently adopted regulations opening a year-round hunting season with no bag limit for the invasive Eurasian collared dove. Learn how to identify them here.

California also offers coveted pronghorn antelope, elk and bighorn sheep hunts through a drawing system. Hunting for wild pigs is growing in popularity and can be done year-round.

A valid California hunting license and appropriate tags for each species pursued must be obtained before entering the field. Buy a hunting license and tags online here or find a CDFW license agent here.

California hunters are required to complete a hunter education training course, pass a comprehensive equivalency test, or provide a valid hunter’s safety certificate before purchasing a hunting license for the first time in California. Each year approximately 30,000 students complete the state’s hunter education course. Find a class here.

Hunters always have the responsibility to be familiar with state game laws before entering the field. Regulations can be found here.

Given the exceptionally dry conditions this year, it is even more important that everyone does their part to prevent wildfires. One less spark means one less wildfire. Learn more here.

CDFW would like to encourage Californians to get out and enjoy our state’s unmatched wild places. Whether just for a day hike on the coast, or a 10-day pack trip to hunt deer in the Trinity Alps, California offers some of the most diverse outdoor experiences anywhere. Be safe and have fun.
