2 days in a row, I have seen a group of 2 or 4 chickens come walking by my ground blind. I am hunting public land on D16 looking for a Doe.....
Can I harvest a chicken legally? They are not tagged, or have any type of ankle ring.
This spot is probably a mile or so away from a private property.

Last season I saw a couple of peacocks as well......

As long as they are feral they are fair game in CA just like goats.

To eat them and they are non-native.

Whatever you do, don’t kill a Bobcat on January 1 or later. Another gift from our friends in Sacramento.
Sucks since I bought a bobcat tag and the season goes till Feb 28

There food. Got it now?

Hahahahah.
I guess it makes sense to shoot a chicken while waiting for a deer to come walking by.A gun shot won't scare the deer will it ?

Since this surfaced here, you might want to double check that situation with applicable authorities. I have had the need recently to contact F&G, Humane Society...oops I mean County animal control and it’s a trap for some poor basterd trying to keep someone’s free range chickens off their property.

They probably belong to the nearest property owner. Out on their daily walk. Even if legal, why? If you want chicken that bad I will Venmo you a few bucks and you can buy a couple from the local feed store. Let them go in your backyard and fire away. I own chickens, and I’d be super bummed if somebody shot them.
