DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND GAME: DEADLINE LOOMS FOR FREE TURKEY HUNTS ON TEJON RANCH

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Only a week and a half remains before the Department of Fish and Game deadline for hunters vying for 10 free turkey hunts on a 270,000-acre private ranch in Kern County expires, according to the California Department of Fish and Game.
 March 8 (next Monday) is the deadline for receiving post cards from hunters interested in the department's drawing to fill five Saturday outings offered free-of-charge by the Tejon Ranch, south of Bakersfield.
 The hunts are available on the first five Saturdays (March 27, April 3, 10, 17 and 24) of California's 37-day spring turkey season, which runs from March 27 through May 2.
 Hunters may file only one post card each with the department, specifying a preferred hunt date. The card must include the applicant hunter's name, hunting license number, address and telephone number so they may be contacted by Fish and Game. Successful hunters will be drawn for only one hunting day of the five available.
 Licensed hunters are allowed one bearded wild turkey per day, two per season throughout the state, except in San Diego County where no turkey hunting is permitted. Shooting hours are from one-half hour before sunrise to 1 p.m. each day of the season.
 Each hunter drawn may bring one guest along to hunt as well. In the 1992 free ranch hunts, all five hunters drawn brought a hunting companion. Only adult hunters are allowed to hunt on the ranch. Guides are provided at no cost by the National Wild Turkey Federation.
 Known for having one of the finest big game hunting programs in California, the Tejon Ranch added wild turkey to its hunting list following the introduction of wild Merriam's to ranch lands by the Department of Fish and Game four years ago. Since that time, the new imports have adapted to the area and large numbers of the birds populate the draws and creek bottoms throughout the expansive ranch.
 Each hunter's post card must be mailed to the California Department of Fish and Game, Wildlife Management Division, Upland Game Unit, Tejon Turkey Hunt, 1416 Ninth St., Room 1248, Sacramento, CA 95814.
