Its been many years since I had a hunting license. Looking to get back into it. Is there any sites or printed material that can get me caught up with any changes or regulations. I know about lead free areas. Probably spend most of the time predator and hog hunting. Any limits on number of rounds on rifles for predator/hogs? Time of day hunting allowed? 20 mins before and after sunset I belief? Any general knowledge. Just want to make sure I don't forget something. All the folks that tought me about hunting have passed on so I need to make sure I got the info myself.

Thanks

There is just too much info to post here you can get it all on line @ dfg.gov or dept of fish and game ???? or most gun and sporting goods stores have the books. Where are you located?

Limit on rounds is only for shotguns. For rifles, as long as it is a CA legal rifle/mag, you are good to go.
Shooting times on coyotes is 24/7/365
Shooting times on big game animals is listed in the dfg regs. Dowload them or pick up a booklet from Turners etc.

Actually, the state (and San Bernardino Co) have a boundary for areas that allow night hunting.

Also keep in mind you'll need to show proof that you did the state mandated hunter training classes. It should cover a lot of the regs as you fight to stay awake.
