Is it legal to hunt surf scoters?

Q: I would like to hunt sea ducks and target surf scoters this waterfowl season. Is this legal? If so, how does one know where it is legal to hunt from shore? Also, if hunting from a boat, I know the motor must not be utilized except to retrieve birds. What other guidelines are there for hunting from a boat?    A. Surf scoters and other sea ducks are found along the entire coast but hunting for them is more popular north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Northern California (such as Humboldt Bay) and in Oregon and Washington.

The 39th annual Chester Invitational Wrestling Tournament attracted 20 high school teams from Northern California and Nevada last Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3-4.

Chico won the tournament, followed by Fernley in second place and Chester in third.

The Chester Volcanoes are again being led by long-time coach Tom Maumoynier, who retired several years ago, but generously picked up the torch again after former Chester coach Tom Rogers was hired as the wrestling coach at Lassen College this season.

November brought an unusual amount of snow and cold weather to the Plumas County.

Usually November weather systems bring us rain, but cold north winds brought the snow level down lower than normal for this time of year.
