Hunting Season

It’s Friday the 13th and hunting season begins this weekend. Oh, joy! Dear season runs from August 14th through September 26th. There will be an additional season from Nov. 13, through December 5 a special buck hunt specifically in the Ventana Wilderness. 

I have reports from two locals, on two different ridges that there is a serious increase in the number of illegal campfires happening right now. Not surprised.

And from today’s Monterey Herald:

But the Tuesday inspection of employee housing at the Gorda Springs Resort didn’t result in red tags being issued, officials said.

Housing conditions for employees at the Gorda restaurant, lodge and service station on Highway 1 about 70 miles south of Carmel, was an issue raised in a civil suit filed by several employees, as well as earlier county inspections.” to read the rest of the article, go here: Monterey Herald Gorda Article
