met up with some old retired coaching friends they're shooting ground squirrels and are not licensed. Do they need licenses to manage diggers,.. I think they do. they're talking about the Modock area.

Yep, in California, you need a hunting license if you shoot anything that breaths.

Braz is right....even though it is 'open' season on ground squirrels year round.

Steve here is the regulation covering the need to be licensed. You may want to print this and show it to your friends before they lose their guns and have to go to court over this.

§700. Hunting and Fishing Licenses, Possession.( a ) Possession of Sport Fishing License: Every person, while engaged in taking any fish, amphibian or reptile, shall have on their person or in their immediate possession a valid sport fishing license, except when diving as provided in Section 7145 of the Fish and Game Code.( b ) Possession of Hunting License: Every person, while engaged in taking any bird or mammal Shall have on their person or in their immediate possession a valid hunting license.
