Can a disabled war veteran hunt with a canine companion?

Q: I’m a 100 percent disabled war veteran and have a canine companion dog (yellow Lab) that goes with me everywhere as my hearing dog. I lost most of my hearing in the war from enemy fire. Is it legal to take a companion dog turkey or deer hunting? Can my dog go turkey hunting on a leash, not as a hunting dog but as a hearing dog? My dog has never been trained to hunt and he won’t be part of that life. He wouldn’t be chasing game but because he is my second set of ears, can he be used for hearing?

—Larry L.

A: Yes, you can use your dog in the situations described. Generally, there’s no prohibition against using dogs (having them with you) while bird hunting, but there is a one dog per hunter limit during general deer season. No dogs are allowed during archery deer season or while hunting with an archery-only tag (California Code of Regulations, section 265).

The Portola High School baseball team, seeded fourth in the Division IV playoffs, eliminated fifth-seeded Biggs 15-0 in five innings last Friday, May 13.

“The boys have worked hard,” said Portola coach Tim Brubaker. “It’s been an interesting year with ups and downs, but the boys’ focus was really good. In playoff baseball, that’s what it takes.”

Pitcher Clinton Morris earned the win for the Portola Tigers, allowing just two hits over five innings and claiming the shutout.

“He battles hard,” said Brubaker. “I was really happy for him.”

Lake Almanor

Lake Almanor is fishing very well. The spring bite is on!

Warmer waters have triggered abundant insect hatches and, along with spawning pond smelt, have hungry trout and salmon moving into shallow waters to feed.

Doug Neal of Almanor Fishing Adventures has had excellent results trolling red and gold Speedy Shiners and florescent Rainbow Runners with a generous application of scents.
