Bow hunting with firearm Question: When bow hunting in California, can you carry a concealed firearm if you possess a concealed carry permit? --DeWayne T. Answer: Unless you are an active or honorably retired peace officer, as specified in Fish and Game Code section 4370(b), you may not carry a firearm during an archery only (AO) deer season or while using an AO tag, regardless of whether the firearm is concealed. Fish and Game Cod.e, section 4370 requires the following: (a) In every area in which deer may lawfully be taken during the general open season, there is an archery season for the taking of deer with bow and arrow Except as provided in subdivision (b), a person taking or attempting to take deer during such archery season shall neither carry, nor have under his or her immediate control, any firearm of any kind. (b) A peace officer whether active or honorably retired, may carry a firearm capable of being concealed on his or her person while engaged in the taking of deer with bow and arrow in accordance with subdivision (a), but shall not take or attempt to take deer with the firearm. AO tags/seasons are only one option, though. You can instead choose to hunt during the general season under a general tag with a bow, and then you could carry a f'n-earm. Hunting under the AO authority grants a special opportunity to archers in exchange for leaving the firearm in camp. Big fish from a pier Question: While fishing from a public pier without a fishing license, am I allowed to go down onto the beach to land a big fish that I hooked on the pier? --Pete T. Answer: No. A fishing license is required when fishing everywhere except from a public pier. Even if you hooked the fish on the pier and only came down onto the beach to land the fish, you would need a valid license to avoid a potential citation. Purchasing an annual fishing license will make this a non-issue; or you may want to buy a pier net to help you land bigger fish from the pier. Peacocks Question: Is it legal to trap wild peacocks? If rso, is it legal to sell them? Is it legal to kill wild peacocks? --R. Om Answer: Peacocks are not: protected by California Fish: and Game laws and so the , California Department of Fish and Wildlife has no ' regulations regarding trapping, selling or taking them. Check with your local animal control, as peacocks are domestic animals. Carcass possession limits Question: I fish for rockfish out of Santa Barbara and afterwards freeze the carcasses to use for crab bait. I am aware of the daily bag limit for rockfish but have not found any regulations for the leftover carcass (head, body, skin and guts). Are there any possession limits for rockfish carcasses? /hn Answer: The general rule is once the meat has been : removed and consumed or given away and you only have a carcass it no longer counts as part of your possession. However, even parts offish are legally considered "fish." The letter of the law is you may not possess more than a daily bag limit offish. So, if you catch fish and take them home to clean and you freeze the carcasses for use as bait in the future, be sure you do not take more than a possession limit of carcasses: with you when you go crabbing.
