For the first time ever at a Fred Hall Show, five of the leaders of the California Fish & Wildlife Department will be speaking at a Fred Hall Show. Directors of the former California Department of Fish and Game have appeared at Fred Hall Shows in the past but never has such an illustrious group been assembled to appear at the Fred Hall Shows before.
The group will consist of: Director, Chuck Bonham; Deputy Director of Wildlife and Fisheries Dan Yparraguirre; The Chief of Law Enforcement Mike Carion; Fisheries Branch Chief Stafford Lehr; Wildlife Branch Chief Eric Loft; and Marine Regions Manager Craig Sherman.
This unbelievable panel will appear on Saturday, March 8 at noon at the Mammoth Lakes Seminar Stage. The moderator of this great panel will be the host of “Let’s Talk Hook Up,” America’s premiere fishing radio show, Pete Gray.
Questions must be written down and give to moderator Gray and then he will ask any member of the panel a question. This is a fantastic opportunity for anglers, hunters and all outdoors minded folks to ask questions of the people who determine your access to California’s “Great Outdoors”.
The California Department of Fish & Wildlife will also have a number of booths at the Fred Hall Show. The CDFW staff will answer questions and all licenses, tags and report cards will be available for sale. The new 2014 CDFW Warden Stamp will be available for purchase ($5) to help support CDFW enforcement and the purchase of equipment.
There will also be a wildlife trailer staffed by wildlife officers that is full of beautiful fish and wildlife mounts and contains a free Laser Shot game. At the trailer Fred Hall Show attendees can learn about becoming a wildlife officer. There will also be an old DFG antique truck to take a picture of. T
