California's lead ammo ban in effect July 1 - posted 1 week ago

CDFW does not care if hunting declines. In fact, many at CDFW openly voice their intentions to stop hunting. They have already increases fees in their other programs to offset the loss of income from a reduction in license sales. Many of the fees, for example a stream and lake alteration agreement have increased 100% in the last 4 years to account for funding shortfalls. CDFW recently imposed a fee for issuance of incidental take permits. The issuance of an incidental take permit used to cost nothing two years ago and now it costs $35,000. The days of hunting in California are coming to an end.
