i live downtown clearlake 

1 minute to grocery , 1 minute to gas , 3 minutes to walmart 

that is if the dirt roads in this stinking town arent all mud in rain . 70 % of the roads here are still pot hole dirt roads 

and its not the la bamba music here , its the boom boom boom of craprap 

and yes , there is lots of meth . most my neighbors use it and all the illegal pot that the city allows 

and only animals around here are the packs of dogs that run wild cause the city wont enforce leash laws or any dog laws . but i do see elk at times when i go to the dump

i do plan on moving . i start social security later this year and soon after i need to get pre-qualified for  VA loan with my double income . soon as i know what i can afford then i start looking around Yreka . im looking online now .

and i dont know squat about YOLO county except they steal our water . but you should see that water or should i say smell it . its dang near sewage by the time it leaves our mercury polluted lake . 

i can say la bomba musica suks but not near as bad as black screaming obsenaties of craprap that goes on here 24/7/365

and there are a couple others on this board from my county , live in a nicer area across the lake . if they came on , at least they could backup my part about this stink hole of a city .

OK ... I get your meaning. When I was raised in Fairfield we use to go fish Clear Lake .... seems like it was like late '50's. Caught good cat fish and bass. Also it seemed like there was parts of the town Clear Lake that was rough even then. Can't remember where we went.

 

We also fished up past the town of Monticello. Then they built the Berryessa lake. Was a lot closer than Clear Lake. The early years fishing in Berryessa was kill. Mostly from the shore. 

 

Yreka would be Ok ... if you want country go on out toward the Scott Valley. But it's nice to be around a Hosp when you get our age. Is there a good Hosp in Yreka these days ?

 

I like the central Oregon Coast. Little Old burn out logging town. A little crime but not much really. I here tell of a few tweakers around. Lot's of Californians moving in now and it's hard to find a place, but nice places are around. Lots of old folks that die and places come open.

 

But Alaska ain't done with me yet. Got a date with a Griz Bear in early May.

http://www.chicagotr...0321-story.html  not the best article , after all it is an anti news paper  

hey ropes , guess  you can thank republicans now . they reversed a democrat law and after thump signs it states can regulate their own hunting on game refuges .

That was bassically a predator controll issue .... the manage for abundance policy. When an area goes into "Intensive Management" various rules can apply. Like killing Wolf pups or Bear cubs in den, aerial gunning ... the Feds didn't want that happening on National Park type lands. Didn't have much to do with hunting really.

 

Part of my area has been under "Intensive Management" for a few years ... Non-resident hunters do not have to buy a tag for Wolf. The ADF&G came in with pro-trappers / hunters and killed all the wolves on a good size island. For Deer management. No guide can guide Deer in that area.

 

Just a feel good law that really don't mean that much either way.

sitting up here in fortuna visiting mom for her 87th birthday , i decided to get gun safety test . its required here now to buy any gun .  I PASSED 

took it at gun shop in rio dell , 30 miles south of eureka . best gun shop in norcal as far as im concerned . 

also found out that i WILL NOT  need to register my M1 carbine as an assault weapon by jan. 1 ,2018 . new law reads any center fire rifle that can accept a magazine BUT it says including other features . folding stock or pistol grip . store is also selling M1 carbines so its not on new weapons reclasifacation of assault weapons .

oh well , i know what i want to say but my fingers are drunk enough they wont type correct

calif. assembly bill AB521 just passed committee vote , now goes to another committee before full assembly vote .

its a democrap bill

last time i tried cal vet loan it was a 6 month wait once i found a house and the builder said no . i was lucky on that one cause 1 year later the house vanished in mud slide above a golf coarse in cobb 

im trying VA loan first now . they say its faster 

and i wont fish in clearlake with all the health warnings on fish and licenses , tackle and bait cost way too much for catch & release .

i will fish up north in siskiyou county  , love the trout .and the lakes up there you can see 30-50 feet deep and still see the bottom

well ... I'm on my way back to Alaska on Saturday. Got a Brown Bear hunt to do and then kill some Halibut. Then it will be fall for a Mt Goat, Black Bear & Blacktail hunts. I got some guide partners so I just kinda try to stay out of the way on the hunts.

 

Sure has been a wet winter and spring here on the coast. I was hoping for some nicer days.

 

Hope you guys got some fun in the sun action planned.

 

And hope your Vet loans go thru quick and things work out better.

Hey BBH, a little bird told me the digest is almost here. I passed through your town on the way to the Mendocino County Blacktail Association dinner in Ukiah. Lake is still pretty damn high.

Any day in the outdoors is a damn good day.

took pup for a run at cache creek wildlife area this morn and just up from hwy 20/53 intersection i saw mountain lion cross the road . pulled over 100 yards or so on other side at first pull out , grabbed camera and waited hoping to see it . but as normal , nothing . it either ran like crazy out of the grassy area or laid down and watched me and waited for me to leave . i waited 5 minutes before continuing to wildlife area . 

that makes about the 5th one ive seen since i been taking pup out there to run over the last 4 1/2 years . and so far , all been camera shy

Should have said you were going, I'd have met you there and gave you that neck roast.

Been hunting now for 18 years and still have not seen one. Maybe once at night up at lower Klamath refuge. Just couldn't be positive that's what it was but I had never seen an eye shine in headlights like that before.
