Smile General San Diego Hunting

Hi all!

I know there has been a few threads about hunting locations for specific animals (Coyote, Boar, etc) but I am new to hunting and I would like to know about any hunting spots for any type of hunting you may know of near San Diego.

(I know that often times hunters keep their spots a secret, but if you have any that you are willing to share)

Find some hiking trails in the CNF and walk around looking at the ground. Seriously you will learn a lot this way. Then think about what the species you want to hunt eats and what they need to survive.

Most of the things I have found have been from looking at google earth and finding cover and water and then going to that location and looking around. This has been my first year hunting and while I'm no expert by any means I have had success with multiple species. In going to actually try something new for me and camp/hunt tonight in the CNF with my daughter. We are going to hike in about 3 miles to where I saw water and reasonably close cover from a ridge line trail we hiked last weekend. I found tracks from rabbit, coyote, and some sort of larger bird in the area so I'm gonna take the rifle out and try to bag a coyote.

What does one do with a dead coyote? Eat it? Stuff it? Leave it for the buzzards?

Enough coyote pelts and you can make a really nice coat.

Don't want to hijack the thread, but I have just started hunting I am pretty green. I have gotten BLM maps and the CNF map too. If anyone is willing to to on a scouting trip pm me. I am interested in hunting pig,turkey, bird and maybe one day I can get a deer tag.

Will a CNF map show me where I can legally hunt? (I am worried about being too close to a road or trail that might prohibit me from hunting there)

Is it legal to leave a dead coyote? Any risk of getting a littering ticket?

That's a wobbler. Wanton Waste states.....yes. But many leave them lying were they fell and haven't had any issues. Just use good judgment. If its way off the beaten path, generally not a problem. But if its right off a high traffic service road or public hiking trail like PCT (HINT), then drag it away from sight. Dont do what that guy up in Tahoe did a couple of weeks ago. The animal right freaks that do not understand population control and circle of life in the forest will see it and shat a pickle.
