Question: I am 16 years old and have my hunter education certification. I was wondering if it is legal for me to hunt by myself with a firearm. I have not found anything saying one way or another whether I can legally do this. If it is legal, do I need to carry written consent from my parents with me? (Jonah A.)

Answer: If you have a valid junior license, you may hunt by yourself with a firearm. However, if you are using a HANDGUN, then you either need to be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult, or have the written...

Prohibited from Retrieving Deer from Private Property

Question: Last year I shot a doe with my A31 tag in Los Angeles County (Archery Only-Either Sex). It appeared to be a lethal shot from 22 yards with decent shot placement. I tracked the blood to a privately owned ranch 100 yards away. I stopped tracking it when it appeared she went onto the ranch property. I then approached the ranch manager to get permission to continue tracking my deer. The owner initially agreed but after one of her coworkers talked to her, she retracted her...

The competition is heating up. Come out and watch ACRA’s Youth Flag Football League. Photo courtesy to the ALD

Week 2 of ACRA’s Youth Flag Football League is in the books. All six teams competed on Sunday evening at Jackson Junior High. The first game of the night was between Cornerstone and Motivate Personal Fitness Academy. This game was back and forth the whole time. At halftime the score was Cornerstone 18, Motivate 12. Josh Beuving for Cornerstone was probably the MVP of the game. It was very difficult to stop him and his jukes out of the running back position. Cornerstone ended up winning the game 32-25.

The second game was Seekers...
