    My Son's Very First Hunt

    After a lot of practice at the local trap and skeet range and passing his hunter safety class February 16th, it was time to take my son Cory hunting. Originally I had planned to take him pidgeon hunting near El Centro but after that hunt was postponed not once, but twice, he was dejected and...

    Irvine Lake Report 2/7/08

    Decided to go up and do a little trout fishing today at the lake. Got there at 6:30 a.m. and rented a boat and picked up some nightcrawlers. Guys working the boat dock told me there was a bite yesterday on the west shore but that trolling was unproductive. Set up on a small beach across from...

    First Seabass Landed For 2008 For BAC

    I saw this on another website. The Balboa Angling Club weighed in the first white seabass for 2008 this morning. Angler Bobby Leineu landed a 37.9 pound WSB on the backside of Catalina this morning on live squid at 8:15 a.m. Gotta love it...

    What happened to the "Hunting Reports"?

    I see that the hunting reports and hunting discussion forums were combined into one forum yet all that remains are the hunting discussion threads. Where did the actual "reports" go?

    Need suggestions on youth sized shotgun

    My 13 year old son wants to start hunting with me. His grandfather gave him a classic Remington 1100 20 gauge semi-auto that is chambered for only 2 3/4 inch shells with a fixed modified barrel (gun is close to 30 years old). He has been shooting it fairly well at the trap and skeet range but...

    Cibola Waterfowl Season Recap...

    Once again just an awesome season of waterfowl hunting in the Cibola area. Lots of good memories. Lots of opportunities. Can't wait until next year... Here is a photographic recap of the action starting with my first hunt in late November until the final hunt yesterday.

    I See Dead Ducks...

    Just returned from the Cibola area to finish off my hunting season. Decided to forego the geese and concentrate on the ducks after last weeks shootfest and I'm glad I made that decision. Went back to the honey hole after pounding the crap out of it last week and the mallards wanted to play...

    Does anyone have a good duck recipe?

    Cibola Waterfowl Slam

    Wow, what an awesome two days of hunting... Headed down to Cibola on Monday to hunt Tuesday and Wednesday. Knowing that the goose hunting has been tough and that I saw tremendous numbers of ducks the week before I decided to switch things up and try something different. Tuesday morning gave...

    Cibola Report

    Hunted the Cibola area last week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Overall tough hunting on the geese as they are not leaving the safety of the refuge although this pair made that mistake. Good numbers of geese (approx. 7,000) and the most ducks I have seen all season. The ducks were leaving the...

    Only in California...

    I just read in today's paper that hundreds of Roosevelt elk and Kaibab mule deer will be needlessly slaughtered over the next four years on Santa Rosa Island. A law that gave the animals a stay of execution last year was repealed on Monday paving the way for 1,100 animals to be executed...

    Cibola Salute...

    Hunted Cibola on Tuesday and this morning and shot limits of geese both days. Even shot some nice ducks including a pair of canvasbacks. Shot a limit of geese this morning by 6:30 and one had a leg band...nice! Even though I would say the hunting has been tough in Cibola the last few weeks...

    What A Cunt...

    A little explanation as to the title of this thread... My bro and I decided to take our mom out to see a movie this afternoon. She lost her husband, my stepfather, back in June and the holidays have been really tough on her. We figured that getting her out of the house was a good thing to...

    Cibola Goose Limits

    Drove to Cibola on Monday morning hoping to miss the holiday crowds and take advantage of new birds arriving in the valley pushed south by the strong north winds and guided by the full moon of the weekend. My hunch was correct as several thousand honkers showed up overnight. Typical of new...

    Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

    My son and I rescued this 4 1/2 old female from the local animal shelter. She weighs 24 pounds. Bred in Canada, the breed lures (tolling) ducks and geese into gun range by running back and forth in the shallow water in front of the hunters blinds and then retrieves the downed birds. I can't...

    SCI Seabass and Yellows on the Dreamer

    Had the opportunity to fish with Allyn Watson on the Dreamer on Wednesday the 27th. Allyn had been having good fishing at SCI so the decision was made to tank up on squid at Catalina then head over to SCI. The Navy had the back of the island closed and with it most of the spots we wanted to...

    Catalina WSB and Yellows 6/11/07 w/Pics

    Incredible fishing early Monday morning on the backside of the island. Left Dana Point Sunday evening and ran over to Catalina and got set up in 100 feet of water. Made about a scoop of live squid to compliment our fresh frozen. Knowing that the bite did not start until 4:30 a.m. we baited a...

    Wood Duck Mount

    With all the recent posts regarding mounts I thought I would post a pic of the drake wood duck I shot last season near Cibola, Arizona. The wood ducks are pretty rare in that area but this is the second drake I have taken there. I think the taxidermist, Darius Mostoufi, did a fabulous job at a...

    Right Place, Right Time for MarDiosa Seabass

    Had an opportunity to fish with Tony Saldivar of the MarDiosa out of Pierpoint Landing over the weekend at Catalina and we were fortunate enough to find some biting seabass on a shallow beach. We ended up with limits of 20 to 48 pound fish during the late afternoon bite in water that was 5 to 10...

    Irvine Lake Quality 4/21/07

    My 12 year old son Cory and I decided to hit Irvine lake on Saturday after the recent rainstorm and were pleasantly surprised to find excellent conditions and very few people at the lake. Sierra Cove was packed with boats but only a few boats were trolling the west shore and dam area. Trolling...

    Has Shawn Stewart left the building?

    There was an article in today's paper that stated Shawn Steward is no longer the Captain of the Excel. As was the case with Pat Cavanaugh it appears Shawn will now be running a boat out of Captain Hook's in Oxnard called the Aloha Spirit... I have not verified this information but if in fact...

    California Blacktail Deer

    While not the biggest deer in terms of antler growth or body size, the California blacktail is common throughout the state. While I have not applied for or hunted any of the "premium tag" area's for this species, I have shot several with my bow in the A zone in the same area's I hunt the hogs...

    Arizona Archery Bull

    This was my first bull elk taken with a bow. I have shot others with my 7MM, but bowhunting is like taking it to a whole new level. Very difficult to get close enough to take a shot with a bow, but when you do, what a rush! This one came in on a cow call in unit 27 in Arizona. I was hunting...

    Hog Hunting in Central California

    Over the years I have had the opportunity to hunt wild hogs on private ranches west of the Paso Robles area and have always done well. There is no limit on hogs and no season which means they can be hunted year round. The ranch owners do not like the hogs because they tear up the ground and...
