I got a friend that owns 50 acres in castro valley unincorporated area. would it be legal to shoot there? Is it still alameda county? I have a friend whose father is a sheriff should i ask him or call the sheriffs dept? Thanks for the help guys.

I think you would be better off getting something in writing from the local PD. That way, if they try and tell you anything when your shooting, you can show them the paper!!

Legal to shoot there as long as no covenants are made with the neighbors!
Alameda county 100% fine to shoot in, not Alameda city;)

i just went earlier, so much fun, lucky bastard has 110 acres. Said its legal to hunt aswell and his dad has taken 2 pigs this year. We even saw some pig tracks where they were 'rutting' or whatever its called. Wonder if it'd be legal for me to hunt with an AK. hmmmm

Look Wat I kAn DO !

Yea, poor pig. Don't be an unethical hunter. Instead, use something that will finish the job better. There are much better options to use on pigs than a little 7.62x39 round.

Um.. I thought the 7.62 x 39 was somewhat the same in power as the .30-30? A lighter bullet travelling a bit faster.. and there have been many pigs taken with the .30-30. So long as shot placement is the key, I don't see any problem with someone using it at short ranges for hunting.

My family owns a similar amount of property in unincorporated Contra Costa County. My suggestion would be to give the local pd/sheriffs a courtesy call whenever you are shooting. Otherwise, we tend to get visited.
