Hunting Season at Cronan Ranch

If you’re hiking, bicycling or horseback riding at Cronan Ranch, please be advised that this is deer season, and hunting is permitted. Wear bright-colored clothing and make lots of noise! Hunters are supposed to sign in at the gate, but we’ve been advised that no sign-in sheet is posted, so don’t assume there is no one there.

Per the BLM’s Cronan Ranch Draft Management Plan, hunting at Cronan Ranch “is restricted to deer during the general season, turkey in the fall season, quail, and mourning doves, during the seasons specified by the CA Department of Fish and Game. There will be no hunting for bear, squirrels, rabbits, jackrabbits, waterfowl, furbearers, or non-game species.”

A number of people have expressed concern about whether it is safe to allow hunting in an area where so many people are enjoying outdoor recreation. We understand that the new BLM field office manager, Bill Hayes, is considering changing the policy. If you would like to weigh in with your opinion, please send a letter to
Bill Hayes
Bureau of Land Management
Folsom Field Office
63 Natoma Street, Folsom, CA 95630

There is a downloadable copy of the Cronan Ranch Draft Management Plan on the Folsom Field Office web page.
