Hunting is permitted on public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management - but some areas are closed to hunting and shooting. State of California hunting regulations are enforced on Federal lands. Hunters are required to follow all state and local laws and ordinances which relate to the use of firearms, or to the taking of game.
Target Shooting is allowed on public lands - but some areas are closed to shooting. However, you must provide your own targets and remove your debris before you leave the site. It is illegal to shoot at trees, signs, outbuildings, or other objects on Federal lands that are for the public's enjoyment. The Bureau of Land Management adheres to the guidelines issued by the State of California, Department of Justice, regarding the types of weapons allowed for use on the public lands. Use of assault weapons is not permitted.
Public roads must be utilized to gain access to the public lands. Crossing private lands to access public lands is not permitted unless you obtain permission from the private landowner. Our surface management maps may assist you in locating Federal lands.
Safety - Safe and prudent actions should be followed at all times. Be aware of the other public land visitors who may be utilizing the same areas for other recreational uses, i.e., camping, hiking, biking, and rock-hounding. If you have questions regarding areas that may be appropriate for hunting or shooting, you should contact the BLM Field or District Office having jurisdiction for the area:
Bureau of Land Management Maps and information packets cost $4.00. They have an index for all their maps for free, make sure and get that so you'll know what map names you're after. Make sure and get the land status management maps which help assist you in locating Federal lands. BLM calls them "Surface and Mineral Ownership Maps". These maps come in 2 editions, "Surface" and "Surface/Mineral". Get the "Surface/Mineral" version. The map scale is 1:100,000. For the southern California deserts the BLM maps are called "Desert Access Guide Maps". There is also a free index for the Desert Access Maps and the maps are 1:100,000 in scale.

Stockdale Mountain BLM - Monterey Co. E-mail from Joe about Stockdale Mountain. I was out at Stockdale Mt. getting info. What I found out from residents up there was scary. The only access is a narrow point off of Slack Canyon. Rd. The boundaries are not marked clearly! Mr. Kester owns all land around the area and patrols it often and Fish and Game also roams through daily. I was told by one of the outfitters on your page (one I trust and have a personal relationship with) up there that this area is pretty much a trap for hunters. I was told that going up there is just cause for trouble. There are no friendly warnings, no matter what game is being pursued. I hear that many hunters are sighted for poaching even when they are not meaning to do so. I suggest that you post a warning on your site for ALL TO BEWARE! and to know their location at all times. This area does have lots of hogs, but the terrain is thick with brush and hunters get in trouble when they look for a clearing (Kester's land). I suggest using a topo map with GPS in this area, and talking to DFG for boundaries. By the way, Kester is an outfitter and guide. Thanx Joe.

Final Approach ....
Being a hunter and living in Southern California has its challenges. The biggest problem is knowing where you can legally discharge a firearm. Each county in California has its own firearms ordinance, so Netcomp creates its maps starting with the County Ordinance. There are also many other agencies involved such as Federal, State, County, City, BLM, Private, Fish and Game, OHV, Forestry, University, Indian and Preserves. The average hunter has no way of knowing which jurisdiction prevails. The collection of data we use tries to account for all these factors and agencies. With land ownership constantly changing, it requires us all to verify that one can discharge a firearm in that area before going hunting. JHO Sponsor.

Being a hunter and living in Southern California has its challenges. The biggest problem is knowing where you can legally discharge a firearm. Each county in California has its own firearms ordinance, so Netcomp (www.firearmsmaps.com) creates its maps starting with the County Ordinance. There are also many other agencies involved such as Federal, State, County, City, BLM, Private, Fish and Game, OHV, Forestry, University, Indian and Preserves. The average hunter has no way of knowing which jurisdiction prevails. The collection of data we use tries to account for all these factors and agencies. With land ownership constantly changing, it requires us all to verify that one can discharge a firearm in that area before going hunting. JHO Sponsor.
San Bernardino County Shooting Map. The county revised their shooting in the summer of 2010 and the maps are online and the printed version is at Bass Pro in Rancho Cucamonga. Other vendors will be carrying the maps in the future. Right now you can use a cellhpone to pull up the online maps but the color coding is not working.
Some tips on printing the new San Bernardino County shooting map.
Zoom in to where you want your view of the map, usually 150% to 300% depending on how big an area you want and how much detail.
1. Click on "print", then on "Print Range" click on "Current View" and that will print the area you're looking at.
2. In the "Page Scaling" section choose, "Fit To Printable Area". That will enlarge the print to whatever size paper your printer is using.
3. Then in "Page Scaling" choose, "Fit to paper". That will enlarge the print to whatever size paper your printer is using.
4. Select "Advanced" and check "Print As Image". This will just print the screen image (what you see) and not all the layers you don't see or need.

Access is permitted to the Home Study and On-line 4 hour follow-up class only after a student has completed the written Home Study or On-line component of the class. Contact the local District Coordinator for more information on the Home Study or On-line class.

Passes are available at Forest Service offices, by mail and from specified vendors like REI, Turner's Outdoorsman and Big 5. A pass will not be needed when traveling through the forest, but not stopping. A pass is not required for people stopping for information at Ranger stations, visitor centers and other Forest Service Offices. The pass is a placard you hang from your mirror. You can get an additional vehicle sticker pass for $4.00 more and tape it inside your window if you forget to hang the placard like I do. And yes, the Forest Service people are checking vehicles every day, so be sure to display it, or you get the citation on your windshield. If you forget and get cited, you just mail the citation in with your pass number written on it. For more information about the National Forest Adventure Pass, call the local Forest Service Offices listed below.
