Next time you travel, share where you went by taking your local newspaper along and including it in a photo. Then email the photo to halibut, tarantul Shooting halibut Question: I have a ques- tion about safely bringing large halibut on board. Because the Pacific halibut caught in Alaska are often over 100 pounds, deckhands use pistols or small shotguns to kill the fish before bring- ing them on board. This is to prevent the fish from causing damage or hurting anyone once on the deck. Would this method be legal to use in Cal- ifornia ocean waters with large fish? Of course, the fish wo~d already be "landed" by first being gaffed. Is it even legal to carry a pistol while fishing on a private boat near shore? -~-Timo~y B. Morro Bay Answer: Sport fishermen may take halibut by hand, hook and line, spear fishing, spear, harpoon or bow and arrow (California Code of Regulations Title 14, sections 28.65, 28.90 and 28.95). Firearms are not a legal method of take for halibut, so a gun may not be used to as- sist in taking or landing the fish. In some areas it may be le- gal to carry a pistol on a pri- vate boat but there are clo- sures that prohibit the pos- session of any firearm on a boat along portions of the Monterey and San Luis Obis- po county coastlines within the California Sea Otter Game Refuge. ff considering carrying a pistol on your boat, you need to research lo- cal laws and ordinances with- in the jurisdictions you will be transiting on your fishing trip. Breeding tarantulas Question: I'm interested in catching some local tarantu- las to try breeding them. I can't find anything obviously referring to either tarantulas or prohibitions on such things. Are there any licenses op CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Dept of Fish & Wildlife required? Are there any defi- nite prohibitions against it or any issues pertaining to the different public lands (e.g., city, county, state, federal)? ---S. Godfrey Answer: The Fish and Game Code and its imple- menting regulations current- ly do not prohibit the take of spiders, but federal laws may apply to the take or breeding of tarantulas. You may want to consult the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding federal prohibitions, and be aware that some public lands (e.g., state and national parks, scientific reserves, etc.) have laws that prohibit the taking of any live ani- mals. You need to check with the jurisdiction of the land on which you want to hunt tarantulas. Distance from hoop nets Question: How far can a fisherman be from his nets once the traps are in the wa- ter? One hundred yards? Five hundred yards? --Dixon C. Answer: There is no legal limit to the distance you can travel from hoop nets you have set in a recreational pursuit of lobster or crab. However, they must be checked -- lifted to the sur- face -- at least every two hours. Transporting deer mount Question: I am looking to add a mounted white-tailed doe head to the family cabin but ~vant to be sure before buying it. It was legally taken t distance and mounted in another state. From what I hear, it's really old. I don't believe they are native to California but I want to be sure its legal to do before purchasing and trans- porting it here. --Kristi D. Answer: Yes, it is legal in California for you to pur- chase the taxidermied head of either sex of a white-tailed deer. California Fish and Game law (Fish and Game Code, section 3039) only pro- hibits buying or selling any species of bird or mammal that occurs in the wild in Cal- ifornia. We have only mule deer and black-tailed deer here. One thing you must do be- fore importing it into Califor- nia is to complete and submit the Declaration for Entry form available online at In addition, when shipping wildlife into California, there are certain requirements re- garding how to properly mark containers containing wildlife. Any package in which birds, mammals, fish, reptiles or amphibians, or parts thereof, are offered for transportation to, or are transported or received for transportation by, a common carrier or his or her agent shall bear the name and ad- dress of the shipper and of the consignee and an accu- rate description of the num- bers and kinds of birds, mam- mals, fish, reptiles or am- phibians contained therein clearly and conspicuously marked on the outside there- of (FGC, section 2348), Carrie Wilson is a marine envi- ronmental scientist with the C.ali. fornia Department ofFish and Wildlife Whileshecannotperson. ally answer everyone's questions, she will select a few to answer each weak in this column.
