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...

Over the years, Outdoor Amador has covered kayak trips, bike rides, triathlons, swimming, tennis, golf, and Sierra Nevada hikes. There are so many outdoor options when you live in Northern California, it can be hard to decide what to do when you have time and energy for outdoor adventure. But sometimes, you just want to go outside and take a simple walk. Maybe you don’t have much time. Maybe you don’t have much energy. Some days your life is such that you just want to stay close to home and not load up a lot of gear. On days like... [Read more]

Fun on the courts. Photo courtesy to the ALD
I hoped to escape my store this year and catch part of the 17th Michael Neville 3-On-3 Basketball Tournament last Saturday, but it turned out to be a busy day. About 2:30, I received a call from courtside, Ledger Dispatch Editor Jerry Budrick letting me know the championship game was about 20 minutes from tip-off. And, in case I was interested, my son’s team was going up against his son’s for the championship trophy. I was interested and I ducked out, leaving Jack to deal with whatever might happen in the next hour. He encouraged me... [Read more]

The 2016 US Open started off with a “Bang” however it wasn’t the sound of a shotgun but the popping sound of a myriad of colorful fireworks being launched over the Las Vegas night sky on Independence Day. It was a fitting start to our nation’s youth exercising their 2nd Amendment rights at the US Open Clay Target Championships which ran July 5 - 9.

The US Open took place last week at the Clark County Shooting Complex in North Las Vegas, home to a world class Shotgun Center with 24 combination trap and skeet fields and two...

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...

John Raymond Takacs points up to the heavens as he wins another Ironman competition. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch
It was February of 1971. John Raymond Takacs, 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam, was just three weeks away from R&R and a trip of a lifetime to Australia when the Huey Helicopter he was in was shot down, crashed and rolled upside down. At that time, Takacs had been”in-country” for five-and-half months. At six months, you are allowed to take an out-of-country R&R. He dreamed daily of going to Australia. “Those dreams kept me sane during the everyday craziness of war,” said Takacs. Instead, Takacs was put on a medevac plane to Japan... [Read more]
