Victory over the Antis! Fish and Wildlife Commission Refuses to Put the Closure of Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve on Agenda

Any of you that have been here at SoCalHunt’s blog probably remember this post back in November…

 https://socalhunt.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/antis-trying-to-shut-down-hunting-at-state-ecological-reserve-help-needed-sign-the-petition/

As I stated before this is quite a ways from San Jacinto but we need to stick together or we fall separately.

Well, good news!  The hunting community has won!

Here’s the news direct from Scott McMorrow who started the petition on change.org that many of you signed:

“On 4/17/13, we presented our case before the CA Fish and Game Commission, and they voted to not put the closure of Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve on an agenda. This means that, for the time being, this area will not be closed to hunting. This outcome would not have happened without the help of each and every one of you. Thank you for signing the petition. And many, many thanks to CWA, COHA, the Houndsmen, and all the hunters for coming to the meeting to support keeping the area open. Also, many thanks and high fives to DU for helping get the word out. This was a group effort and we all share in the celebration.”

Thanks to all that signed the petition.  It just shows that, even in California it can be done.

Volunteer Clean-Up Day a Big Success at San Jacinto Wildlife Area

San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s volunteer blind clean-up day on Saturday, March 9th was a big success.
About 23 volunteers showed up to assist the San Jacinto staff in getting the refuge’s blinds cleaned up from the just ended waterfowl season. Volunteers met at the check station at 7 am and were sent out, plastic bags in hand, throughout the refuge to clean up all the spent shell, wads and other miscellaneous trash they could manage to find in and around the blinds.

After cleaning up their assigned areas the volunteers even hit the riparian area that runs through the refuge collecting additional trash.

After the clean up the SJ Staff and the volunteers met at Casa Mexicana Restaurant for a well-deserved lunch before parting ways for the day.

The next event at San Jacinto will be a Hunter’s Safety class on June 1st . Keep your eye on SoCalHunt for an announcement on that when the date is firmed up and more details are available.
