14A Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 Feather River Bulletin On extra game, fishing laws and wild birds CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Department of Fish & Game Taking extra game to give away? Q: If I go diving with a friend in Sea Ranch (Sonoma County) and my wife stays home in San Francisco, can I dive one day and gift those abalone to my wife even though she is not with me at the moment? Then the follow- ing day, can I dive again, take an additional limit for myself, and then drive home alone with six abalone in my car? I would make sure the abalone remained in their shells and I would carry a let- ter stating three of the abalone are gifts for my wife. Does she have to be with me for me to gift the abalone to her? A: This scenario would not be legal. Regardless of your in- tent, if you have six abalone in your possession, you will be in violation of an over limit and could be cited and have all of your abalone confiscat- ed. Only three abalone may be possessed at any time by an individual, period (California Code of Regulations, section 29.15[c]). For you to legally gift abalone to someone else, that person must be with you to re- ceive and personally take pos- session of the abalone. Just carrying a note stating that you intend to gift three of the six abalone in your possession to your wife will not suffice because you are still in posses- sion of an over limit, and are thus in violation of the law. Even though regulations al- low for gifting abalone to oth- er people, remember that bag and possession limits are set up as fishery management tools to help control excessive take of abalone. Even with the current lim- its and regulations, there is concern that some heavily used fishing sites are showing signs of reduced abalone pop- ulations. Careful management of this fishery is required to help assure California's abalone stocks remain healthy and sustainable for continued future harvest through the coming years. Each diver and shore picker should be aware and mindful of this and help whenever they can. Are Native Americans exempt from California fishing laws? Q: On the Klamath River, is it legal for an Indian guide with paying clients on his boat to use more than one rod per passenger and barbed hooks when this is illegal on this river? A: Generally, there are no ex- ceptions for Native Americans in the fishing regulations. However, on some rivers when tribal rights have been granted to the native people while on the tribal lands, they may be exempt from Califor- nia fishing laws. When such exemptions are in place it only applies to Na- tive Americans on the tribal roll of the tribe with the rights. In your example, the paying clients are not exempt unless they are Native Americans on the tribal roll of the tribe with the exemption. What to do about wild bird feeding? Q: We feed birds in our yard year round, but this year we are delighted to have a family of wild quail who have taken up residence in our yard in San Ramon. Our problem is there are al- so two pairs of raucous big birds that look like and act like blue jays, and they have taken over our yard. Their call is so unpleasant and they are aggressive and chase away other smaller birds. They are eating the food we're trying to preserve for the quail and other smaller birds, such as finches. Can those large blue-jay-like birds be trapped or contained somehow? They are so bold they attack neighborhood dogs and cats by pecking at their heads. Help, please. A: Sorry to hear about the problem you're having. Unfor- tunately, the jays are protect- ed under the Migratory Bird Act and so cannot be trapped, contained or hurt. Your best bet is to try to change your feeding methods somehow to exclude the jays. This may be difficult but it's really your only alternative. Can I deer hunt from my porch? Q: I have a house on five acres near Winters in North- ern California and have some really nice bucks on my land and every day they come with- in a few feet of my house and graze on my garden and plants. If I purchase an A Zone tag this year, can I legally shoot a deer on my land from my house or porch? My house is situated more than 200 yards from any other property or house and it is outside of the city limits. A: Yes. The safety zone law prohibits shooting within 150 yards of any occupied dwelling without the permis- sion of the occupant. As long as it is otherwise legal to dis- charge a firearm in this area (e.g. not in the city limits), then go for it.
