The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is now accepting applications for spring wild turkey hunts in the North Central Region, and deadlines are approaching. These hunts are being offered at Spenceville, Oroville, Daugherty Hill and Gray Lodge wildlife areas. A special hunt opportunity is also available at the Cosumnes River Preserve, in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management.
What to do with injured wildlife?
Q. We have seen an injured buck in our neighborhood with a gash in his left hind leg and bone sticking out. It's swollen, probably infected and he can't put any weight on that leg at all.
I don't see how it will get better and he doesn't seem to have much to look forward to other than a lot of suffering and a painful death. He needs to either be given a fighting chance by tranquilizing and treating him or to be put out of his misery so this injury won't fester and cause him to suffer any more.

The Portola Lady Tigers basketball squad advanced to the North Section semifinals last week with a pair of playoff wins at home. The girls defeated the Durham High Trojans 47 to 43 on Tuesday, Feb. 22, and then whipped the Quincy Trojans 55 to 33 Saturday, Feb. 26.
