Hunting seasons change from year to year, depending on the specific game. Elk season, for example, generally ranges from late July-early August to as late as January, depending on the type of elk you are hunting. For pronghorn and bighorn sheep, hunting season is generally between early December and early February. To see a full breakdown of this season's dates, visit the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
