New military guy in the area. CA has me so backwards on all their draws and rules. I am used to whitetail and turkey hunting. I have no idea where to begin out here and looking for anyone to help and a hunting buddy. Someone who can guide me through the draws and point me where to hunt. Seems everyone I have met doesn't want to give too much info. I can help out during duck season, as I belong to a club here.

Please help!

I too have been looking for any clubs, posts, whatever. Can't seem to find anything or anyone. I've only hunted upland, but definitely want to hunt waterfowl this coming season, as well as other game, if possible.

I am just looking for bear or turkey but don't know enough about the area.

For bear and turkey, I think your best bet is up near Tehachapi, kernville, maybe further up the Central Valley along the west side of the Sierras.

I have never been up there and would hate to stumble on private land

Finding public land to hunt is the most difficult thing. I do have a phone app HUNT (made by GPS Maps) that is somewhat helpful. you have to buy it, I can't remember how much, but it gives you an overlay map showing private land vs. state and fed land. It does not make it clear where you can and can't hunt. I know there are some other GPS based apps, or software you can get. I have not had enough time to look figure out what is best. Maybe I will ask the forum...

Good luck, keep at it

The even bigger problem is I don't even know how to hunt with spot and stalk or for bears. Used to tree stand hunting.

Hey man, are you at Edwards? I'm actually looking for some help myself. First time ever hunting. I'm hunting ducks on base this year, but would love to get a deer or bear. PM me if you are interested.
