- Hunting is allowed on public lands under the jurisdiction of the Ukiah Field Office. Hunters are required to follow all state and local laws or ordinances which relate to the use of firearms, or to the taking of game.
- Game animals known to be present on the public lands include deer, tule elk, black bears, grey squirrels, jackrabbits, brush rabbits, valley quail, mourning doves, band-tailed pigeon, ducks, and wild turkeys. The population of feral pigs on public lands in the Ukiah Field Office area is considered poor.
- The public lands within theUkiah Field Office are often intermingled with private property. Obtain a map and know where you are to avoid trespassing.
- Not all Federal parcels have public access. Adjacent private property owners are within their legal rights to prevent people from crossing their land to get to the public land.
- Private lands adjacent to the public lands are often closed to hunting, with trespassers prosecuted by the owner. Occupied residences on these private lands are common, as are livestock. Use caution and common sense.
- The quadrangle maps sold by the BLM show where the Federal lands are located; not only the BLM-administered lands, but also those of other agencies such as the Forest Service. However, not all the roads shown on the maps are open to public use. The BLM quads are most effective when used in conjunction with other maps, such as a road map or a USGS topographic map.
- The California Department of Fish and Game can be contacted for information on areas which may support the best populations of game animals.
