Oh, Hoggy ... Bless your heart. Fish Cops can enter private lands at will and range to within a small restricted zone (100 yards?) around an occupied dwelling. The legal fig leaf is that California wildlife is publicly owned and is not held by owners of private land where wildlife is present. I think that is true in all or most states.Hogskin said:

I've been wanting to move up that way for years but have had old folks with deep roots here in socal. Really loved the priest river area. Actually pretty much anywhere in the northern part of the state is whers im aiming. What part of the state and what does your friend do for money up there? It sucks to feel the need to leave the place I was born and raised, but the government overreach is unacceptable.Bigolwiggler said:I added up all of the fees that I pay for hunting and fishing .
Deer (2 tags) bear , upland game , duck , fishing + steelhead and salmon
I came up with $238.75 per year as a resident .
This does not include all of the big game drawing fees that I pay for . Elk and Speed goat which are super rare to be drawn for . I feel fortunate that I have been drawn for elk twice in my life here .
In Idaho , the resident combo package which includes GUARANTEED tags for , Deer , Elk , Bear , Mtn Lion , Wolf ( rifle , archery or muzzleloader ) and full fishing license is $144.60
I know its apples and oranges .....
My friend who lives there has been pounding on me to move there as he did . I have to say , its tempting .
Amen - My boy has gotten so discourage with hunting and fishing in San Diego I have to force him to go with me... For the last 3 years my father has stayed at Santee Lakes in San Diego and has realized how hard it is to fish here.. and hunting is not that much easier... My son like Dove hunting cause we have managed to be successful but Turkey - Nah, quail - Nah, Rabbit - Nah....labowned said:I have two boys. Ive taken them fishing and hunting several times. Its hard to keep them interested when its always so slow. Especially the fishing which is beyond dismal in socal (im an ohioan originally) They like the canoe with the motor and they like setting up for ducks in the dark. But i always pack it in early if theres no action bc they start getting fidgity. ALSO i have a friend whose boy wanted to write a paper about his love of hunting...his teacher told him he couldnt. You better believe that led to phone call.
