Online-Only Regulation Booklets and Big Game Hunting Digest

As part of the CDFW effort to go electronic, regulation booklets and the Big Game Hunting Digest will be available online-only (on this page) in 2021 and beyond. The cost to print and ship booklets is significant, and money saved will be put toward fish and wildlife conservation.
