Exactly right! I'm surprised they even let people hunt there.
I thought the same thing until I went there.
We were staying in Ventura California ( its a beautiful area btw....we drove the Malibu highway...incredible ) and had to run to Dicks sporting goods to grab a few things for a baseball game.
anyway....I was wondering how watered down the sporting goods section was? I walked in and it was wall to wall guns, mounts on the walls, etc. Public hunting brochures everywhere, lots of hunting gear on the racks.
in LA proper or one of the burb's it may be a bit different...but from what I saw hunting was welcomed. one thing I did think was funny/sad was all the restrictions on fish consumption. they have big signs everywhere of the fish you can't eat due to being contaminated.
the hills of northern LA County and Malibu are absolutely gorgeous and look very gamey. It is my understanding that the hunting is not very good due to high mountain lion populations.
