Question: A friend and I recently had a situation where we found pig tracks at one of the areas where we like to duck hunt. We both found it a little unnerving to be walking in knee to waist high grass armed with only bird shot if a pig were to charge. The area where we are hunting doesn’t explicitly prohibit handguns. We are wondering if California law allows us to carry a handgun, not as a method of take but rather for defense while hunting waterfowl. I noticed the answer to the question on sidearms while hunting upland game and... [Read more]

I had so much fun chasing that “tree stump” and since I found a new pink Kastmaster in one of my backup tackle boxes (I have several), I thought I’d wander out to Lake Camanche North Shore on Friday (that would be Black Friday). Besides, who wants to fight all the mall crowds?

I decided to sleep in (6:00 instead of 5:15) and got out to the lake around 9 a.m. Didn’t see any reason to rush, the fish would be there or they wouldn’t. I picked up right where I left off Monday with one rod out with rainbow Power Bait and a little Pro-Cure...

Picking up the thought from last week, Lake Amador is a business unlike Lake Camanche (which is a business too, but run by EBMUD for water storage) or Lake Pardee (same reason) and so it is with most of the lakes in our area. I could go on and tell you the who and the what, but suffice it to say that if you’re running a business, the premise is to make money.

So now, during this period of the hatchery being shut down, Lake Amador has to decide what direction to go. I’m not going into what Lee said, but to continue, some changes will...

The Amador County Recreation Agency hosted a Home Run Derby at Pioneer Park last Wednesday. ACRA runs a Men’s Softball League every Monday and Wednesday night during the summer and they figured to put on a Home Run Derby at the same time as Major League Baseball’s All-Star Home Run Derby. There were two games that night, followed by the derby. Twenty contestants signed up for the event — eight of them twice, to try to hit more home runs in their second go-around than they did the first time up. The entry fee was $20. The winner of...

The Amador County Recreation Agency held its third annual Youth Sports Fair at Amador High School last Saturday. The Youth Sports Fair is an event where kids can come to try out different sports under the supervision of an experienced coach and/or athlete. The fair is beneficial for the kids because it is an opportunity for them to try out sports without having to commit to signing up for a team, which can be expensive and time-consuming if a child ultimately decides that he or she doesn’t like the sport.

There were 13 different...
