Suburban Dove Hunting Not So Well-Received in California

Dove hunting in the suburban areas surrounding the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex? Yeah, they're cool with that. Dove hunting in Fresno, California? Not so much...

From this story in the Merced Sun-Star:
The start of dove hunting season shortly before daybreak Tuesday prompted "continual" calls to Fresno County Sheriff's Office dispatchers, and deputies responded to about 12 calls of close gunfire, pellets hitting homes and buildings or trespassing, said Lt. Jeff Johnson. There is a no-shoot zone around Fresno and Clovis city limits and hunters must be 150 yards away from occupied dwellings

So much for that "dove hunting as a spectator sport thing."
