Help Control the Deer Population at Lake Sonoma
The Friends of Lake Sonoma announced that deer hunting season opened, for bow hunters, at the mostly wild Lake Sonoma preserve, on July 11, 2015. These hunts help in ongoing efforts to control the park's wildlife populations. Funds raised from the hunts are donated to the Friends of Lake Sonoma, who assist the USACE with tours and educational programs at the lake.
Hunters will have access to special areas of the park that are normally closed to the public. This year the limit will be six bucks, as authorized by the California Departments of Fish and Wildlife. In addition, hunters may take one wild pig.
Reservations must be made with Jayson Collard, a member of the Friends of Lake Sonoma board of directors, who personally guides the hunts. Cost is $500 for the first day and $175 for each subsequent day (if the hunter did not get a buck on the first try). Hunters must have a photo ID, a California A-zone deer tag, and a pig tag (if also hunting wild pig).
Contact Jayson Collard at 707-293-6410 or firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations or additional info.
Man with Three Mules Spotted In Geyserville
Curious sights somehow seem less curious in Geyserville. Maybe we're just a little bit more used to the unusual. Leila McPhee spotted the group by the freeway overpass. Her reaction, was, "That guy is old school!"
Actually John or "Mule" is old school and started by spending his summers in the wild areas of the American West 30 years ago, though only the last 10 with the mules. For the past 12 years he has been living outside year-round, so the mules became a necessity. He didn't used to get much notice--that is until development began to encroach on all the formerly wild land he was used to traversing. It was getting harder and harder for him to find the solitude he was seeking, so he has gone public with his message and is now traversing California. He's also now a bit new school, adding a webpage and a facebook page to his tools in an effort to get his message across.
His website shows he was in Hopland on July 26th. This week he spent the night in Geyserville on Tuesday. They also passed through Cloverdale (on the way to Geyserville), Healdsburg and Windsor, and are heading to Santa Rosa. If you would like more info on Mule and his travels, read this article by Mark Lukach: TheAtlantic-There Is a Man Wandering
Info on Mule and his mules was found on the following websites. This photo of Mule with his three mules was taken by filmmaker John McDonald.
