California's lead ammo ban in effect July 1 -
posted 1 week ago
Really important to remember if you carry a sidearm, that your pistol ammo will need to be lead free as well. This is how I understand it. I've also heard that if you don't have proof IE: box your ammo came in, wardens will be confiscating bullets to test them.
The ban, coupled with over zealous DFW Wardens... I fear for the future of California hunters. We're already a dying breed and our Fish and Wildlife agency has time and time again made it clear, that they are not for the hunters or the fishermen in this State. Sadly, I am sure over the next couple years we will see more regulations passed and it will become harder and harder to hunt here. It's not just higher ammo prices that will hurt us either, our current political climate outside of hunting and fishing regulations are driving hard working Californian's (which encompasses a lot of outdoorsmen/women) out of this State. I'll get what I can, while I still can here... but spending time hunting in surrounding Western states, is definitely taking a higher priority now than ever.

Man... I sure hope so this all works out! Somehow, some way, us California's need someone to stand up against the cougar ban here. Hoping someone out there with some power hears our cries and comes to our rescue. We need to stop the activists from having a weight in the scientific approach and model to managing our species across the nation. Our biologists should never have to faced legislation that compromises their abilities to do their job and manage species across the board.

Looking for info on the Late Archery hunt for this zone. Anybody have experience hunting it? Looks like there is good public land to hunt on in the southern end of the unit.
