The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is offering an upland game hunting clinic on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) in Los Angeles County.
Participants from beginner to advanced are welcome to attend. The clinic will cover the basics of hunting with the goal of developing ethical, conservation-minded hunters.
Topics include the history of upland game hunting in California, bird habitat, food and range, maps, equipment and hunting with or without a dog.

The cost for each clinic is $45. The clinic hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Space is limited to 25 people, so please register early. To register or for more information, please visit www.dfg.ca.gov/huntered/advanced/ or contact Lt. Alan Gregory at (916) 653-1235.
