Hunters can apply for each hunt, but they must fill out and mail in a postcard application for each hunt. The card must include the hunter’s name, address, day and evening phone numbers, and his or her current hunting license number. You can include up to one hunting partner on each postcard application by including that hunter’s name and hunting license number. Hunters must also specify which hunt location, date, and whether you want the morning or afternoon hunt (where applicable). Again, hunters may apply for more than one hunt, but must send a postcard in for each hunt or hunt period. Cards should be sent to: California Department of Fish and Game, Game Bird Heritage Special Dove/Quail Hunts, 4665 Lampson Ave., Ste. C, Los Alamitos, CA 90720.
