I checked the fish and game web site and could not find what I needed (could just be me though). Does anyone know where I could find the shooting times for this upcoming turkey season. I'm looking for the times in the Bay area/Sonoma County, and the pig shooting times. any help would be most appreciated. Thanks :)

Shooting time for turkeys an pigs in one half hour before sunrise(woops). SO look up the sunrise (weather.com/ newspaper etc) and you can shoot 30 minutes before that

Statewide (pending any special restriction areas) it is one half hour before SUNRISE until 4:00pm. Someone correct me if I'm wrong (I don't have the regs book in front of me), because I know that might be the Fall season I'm thinking of.

In my hunter's safety course it was 30 mins before sunrise to 30 mins after sunset unless specified.

I've never heard of turkey shooting time ending early, but i could be wrong. I didn't find anything on the dfg regs

I think it's this too. Somebody can check to clarify though since the regs are online.

exactly what I thought. My earlier post was strictly refering to turkey. I forgot he asked about pigs too. Pigs are 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset....normal Big Game hours.

Turkey used to close at 1pm years ago then they changed it to 4.
