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...

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...

Question: Is it legal to shoot my rifle across open water to the other side? Say I am on one side of a lake and see a legal deer on the other side (let’s assume it’s 200 yards, not a good long range shot). Can I shoot across the lake or pond or river? (Larry E.)

Answer: It is never advisable to shoot over water due to the potential for a ricochet. But, it is legal to shoot the deer as long as both you and the deer are on property where it is legal to hunt and you have permission to hunt the area.
