The California Department of Fish and Game has posted the 2011 advanced hunting clinics schedule on its website.

The clinics take place at various locations during the year and focus on the basics of hunting. The series includes sessions on how to hunt turkey, upland game, waterfowl, bear and wild pig. There are also classes offered on land navigation and wilderness survival.

Some of the topics covered in the clinics include the type of firearm and ammunition best for each hunting situation; scouting, tracking and field-dressing game; hunter safety and ethics; and conservation.

Space for each clinic is limited, so those interested in participating should register early.

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