    California Lost to the Antis

    Gov. Brown signed Bill SB1221, last week to ban hunting with hounds for Bear and Bobcat in our wonderful State of California . Wonder what will be next.

    Not much longer now, and they will have completed their objective. I had already booked my hunt For late November. The houndsman was nice enough to give me back all of my deposit.

    Dose it go into effect this 2012 year? Whata bunch of BS. At least I got the chance to hunt with hounds a few times here in CA, even though I didn't get to kill a bear with dogs, I still had a fun time with the experience. Maybe the bear population will get way out of control and they'll be easyer to find, for us with out dogs? It's never good to lose another form of hunting, because like bigshot said, where will it stop? Damm jerry brown and CA!

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m disgusted with this state and the anti hunting agenda of not only the politicians but frankly the Department of Fish & Game also. They think all hunters are poachers and I would like to see the entire sportsmen community boycott this state and not buy licenses for a year and see how that works out for them. The hunting in this state isn’t worth it any way!

    The houndsman I booked my hunt with sold his dogs when the bill was signed, which is why he refunded my money. I wonder how many guys will do the same?

    Here's what is next Jolly Jerry just signed a bill changing the name of the Department of Fish and Game to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Next project is to move "DFW" headquarters to Hollywood"!

    Pretty sad situation. The California where I was born and hunted and fished for over 50 years is gone. Sure glad I decided to retire in Colorado 12 years ago. I still have my memories!
