KERN COUNTY Summer Wild Pig Hunting Clinic.

The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) will offer a Wild Pig Hunting Clinic at the Tejon Ranch in southern Kern County. The clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

Contact: Susan Herrgesell, Advanced Hunter Education Program
Coordinator, (530) 347-3980

Cost of the clinic is $40, however registration is free to Pacific
Coast Hunter Education Association members and other Certified Hunter
Education Instructors in appreciation for their help in educating the
next generation of California hunters. A barbecue lunch will be provided
with a $10 donation.

Topics covered in the clinic are pig biology, hunting techniques and
requirements, methods for locating wild pigs and methods of take.
Instructors will also discuss field dressing, care of game and recipes.

In addition, instructors will discuss the new law prohibiting the use
of lead bullets in condor habitat, which went into effect July 1. Gov.
Schwarzenegger signed Assembly Bill 821 in October 2007; the law is
intended to reduce the potential of lead poisoning through legal hunting
activity in California. In January 2008, prior to the passage of AB 821,
Tejon Ranch banned the use of lead ammunition on its property. A variety
of certified non-lead bullets are available. To obtain more information
about this type of ammunition, visit
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/wildlife/hunting/condor/.

The clinic organizers will also hold a raffle including a grand prize
of a pig hunt on Tejon Ranch. Raffle tickets can be purchased with cash
or check. All proceeds from the clinic will go to the Pacific Coast
Hunter Education Association and DFG’s Advanced Hunter Education
Program.

Tejon Ranch is located 30 miles south of Bakersfield and 60 miles north
of Los Angeles. It spans more than 270,000 acres and is privately-owned.
Use of this area is made possible through DFG’s Private Lands
Management Program, a partnership between the DFG and private land
owners to offer opportunities for public access.
