Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014 11A Hunters have options when they can't pack out the entire deer Packing deer out Question: I am preparing for my upcoming deer hunt and plan to hike 2-1/2 miles one way into a place to try to harvest my deer. If I am successful I will need to pack the animal back out by myself, and this may be an all-day sucker. If this animal is large enough, I am probably going to have to quarter it and hump it out. If this is the case, do I take the head and antlers out with the tag on them, then make successive trips back in, or how do people normally do this? I don't want to take the head out and put it in the back of my truck, risking someone might take it, and then bring another' load out and find I have no evidence. Do you have a suggested protocol I should follow? Thanks. --Rick L. Answer: Most hunters in your situation like to bring a small saw to cut the antlers and skull cap from the head, as you are not required to keep the whole head of a deer you legally harvest. The law requires that upon taking a deer, you must immediately fill out the tag completely and attach it to the antlers (or ear if an antlerless hunt) and then keep it for 15 days after theclose of the season. In your case, the antlers and skull cap could be placed in your locked car in a box or plastic bag until all your meat is hauled out. Depending upon the type of terrain and the size of the deer, many hunters either take out quarters of their deer, or elect to bone it out in. the field. You might also consider using a game-carrier with CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Cal0utdoors@wildlife.ca.gov legally in the water. So this means that even if you legally drop your hoop nets in the water a second after midnight, they must be serviced by 2:00:01 a.m.! Ocean salmon loophole? Question: There has been a lot of discrepancy recently due to a bit of a loophole in the ocean salmon regulations. I have been given different answers by a number of people and would like to have it clarified. I live in Santa Cruz, and in the past few weeks there have been a lot of incidental salmon catches in shallow water while targeting rockfish or lingcod. Because it is entirely incidental catch, I don't see a problem keeping it even though it was caught on a barbed hook. As long as it was of legal size and landed with a net, it should be OK. Of course, if you choose to keep it you would have to switch to salmon-legal gear, but until you did keep one, you can't prevent one from slamming an iron as you're reeling up. So basically, ifI am targeting rockfish using the appropriate gear, and I catch a salmon while doing so, could I land it using the required net, and if it was 24 inches, keep it and then resume fishing with salmon legal gear?
