The California Department of Fish and Game is accepting applications for participation in a permit-only wild-pig hunt in May at Bobcat Ranch, located west of Winters in Yolo County's Vaca Mountain foothills.

This hunting opportunity will give 56 wild-pig hunters access to the private property during two archery periods, two apprentice periods and four general-method periods and is being conducted under the Shared Habitat Alliance for Recreational Enhancement program.

SHARE is a voluntary program in which participating property owners provide public access to their land, offering hunting, fishing and other recreational access that would not be available otherwise.

Applications are available on the DFG website and must be received by 4 p.m. on April 5.
