Fish and Game offers wild pig-hunting clinic June 12

May 25, 2010 |  4:19 pm


The next Advanced Hunting Clinic being offered by the Department of Fish and Game will focus on wild-pig hunting and will be held Saturday June 12 at the Russian River Sportsmen's Club, located in Duncan Mills in Sonoma County.

In partnership with Pacific Coast Hunter Education Assn., the clinic will cover topics such as pig biology; methods for locating wild pigs; hunting techniques, considerations and requirements; methods of take; care of game; and wild pig recipes. The class will also include field dressing and skinning a pig.

The cost to attend is $45, with a barbecue lunch available for an additional $10. Those 16 or younger will be admitted free of charge but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Space is limited to 30 people so those interested in participating should register soon.

Wild pig-hunting season is open year-round in California for licensed hunters, with no tag, daily bag or possession limits, so clinics on the subject seem well worth the registration cost for those wanting to learn more about the quarry.

For more information, e-mail or call DFG Lt. Dan Lehman: (916) 358-4356.
