Question: I would like to know if I can carry my 12-gauge shotgun for protection when I'm fishing from the shore. I have a fishing license and the chamber would be empty. Would it be legal? ---Aaron A. Answer: In many locations along California's coastline it would be unlawful to have a firearm with you. There are rules specific to state and national parks, wildlife refuges (Fish and Game Code, section 10500(b)) and marine sanctuaries, as well as local and county laws that would make it unlawful to carry a firearm while fishing along the coastline. In order to answer your question, we would need to know where you intend to carry the shotgun. In addition to the locations above, it is unlawful to carry a loaded gun in a public place in an incorporated city (Penal Code, section 25850), e.g. the entire shoreline of San Francisco. Simply having the live ammunition attached to the firearm in any manner constitutes "loaded" for purposes of this section. Question: It is my understanding that on land, California Department of Fish and Wildlife takes care of things; in Marine Protected Areas, and in the water, it is the responsibility of NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries.

If the MPA is part of the state park system, you CALIFORNIA OUTi) O0t:~S CARRIE WILSON California Dept. of Fish & Game may be required to obtain a permit for commercial photography from the California Film Commission (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 4316.) If the MPA is part of a county park, a permit may be required depending on the county. For example, San Mateo and San Francisco counties both require permits for commercial photography in their county parks. Question: Am I correct in assuming that, similar to ' deer tags, one must have one pig tag for each feral pig taken, or does the purchase of one pig tag legally allow for taking multiple feral pigs? I saw your comment on a J recent feral pig question where you said there is no I daily bag limit on feral pigs, but I am assuming that this would mean one would still have to have multiple tags for multiple feral pigs taken over a given time frame. --w.B. Answer: Yes, you are correct. Although there is no daily limit for wild pigs, you must possess a tag prior to pig hunting for each pig you intend to take.
