    Enforcement of New CA Ammo Regs???

    With dove season coming, I am wondering how the CA bozos are going to handle the CA hunters coming back from AZ. I typically take a handful of guns in four or five gauges and shoot what I feel like on any given day. That means I take enough ammo to shoot any one gauge for the whole three-day...

    Need A New Game Butcher

    Our group has tried several wild game butcher shops around Southern California (mostly around LA/OC), with mixed results on sausage.

    File This Under: "CA Sucks"

    Was in Temecula Walmart this morning for some cooking stuff and thought I would grab some shells for a quick Yuma dove trip. All ammo locked up, and this sign on the cabinet: So now we can't order over the internet without going through an FFL, we can't bring in any ammo from another state...

    Condor Story From NPR

    Not political or legal or even hunting, except that they mention lead poisoning toward the end as the greatest threat to condor survival. Turns out the real culprit is dead sea lions on the central coast. Who'd a thunk it...

    Bass Pro teams up with Goldman for Cabela's bid

    Posted last night on Reuter's. If this deal goes through, it will reduce competition significantly and force the imposition of sales tax on Cabela's shipments into CA. CA law already requires you to pay tax on internet sales, but this will move it to the original sale tab. Perhaps the biggest...

    Saudis Buying Up CA and AZ Farmland

    This was on Fox News a few days ago. The 14,000-15,000 acres are apparently split between Blythe and Vicksburg. Anybody seen these farms yet? I expect they will all be posted "no hunting." They are probably using no more, and perhaps less, water than the farmers they are replacing, but...
