Hunting in the rut

Question: You recently said it’s easier to hunt deer during the rut — where do you get your information? Have you compared the buck kill rates in states that allow deer to be hunted during the rut against the deer harvest in California? The buck-to-doe ratio in California is terrible. I don’t believe the deer kill in California would be any higher than in any states that allow the deer harvest during the rut. It is not that easy to hunt deer in other states during the rut. If that were true the deer kill would be huge in those states, rather than their average yearly take.

There are some big changes to the athletic department going into effect at Chester High School this year. New staffing nearly across the board will affect every aspect of how Chester plays its game.

One big change is the title of athletic director. This summer, long-time Athletic Director Terry Hernandez left Chester after 20 years of teaching and coaching for a position at Central Valley High School in Redding. Paul Hardig took over the AD position after Hernandez’s departure.

Hernandez was also Chester’s head football coach. Former assistant coach Rich Dreith took the helm of the team, and plans to steer it into another winning season.

Legally, wildlife rehabilitation must be left to the professionals

Rescued rattlesnake

Question: I found and took home a dying Northern Pacific rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus oreganus) after it became a victim of a wildfire. It’s now eating great and able to move fluently which is great and a job well done in my eyes. I’ve had it in captivity close to three weeks now. Is it OK to place it back into the wild (away from humans, of course)?
