The 2011-2012 California Hunting Digest, Upland Game and Waterfowl issue will be available online only this year, the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) announced today. It will not be available in print.
“The Digest is a valued magazine,” said Bernadette Fees, DFG’s assistant deputy director for education and outreach. “We are proud of its popularity with California’s sportsmen and women.”
By publishing the digest online, DFG saves taxpayers thousands of dollars in printing and distribution costs. Publishing online is also beneficial to the environment and is in step with DFG’s initiative on Going Green (reducing DFG’s carbon footprint). It also allows California’s hunters to access the information on their home computers and on smart phones and tablets while away from home or work.
“This year’s online magazine will be formatted for easier viewing, and efforts will continue to produce future issues using the best publishing technology and most economical methods available,” Fees added. The magazine can be found at http://www.dfg.ca.gov/publications/digest/.
The award-winning magazine is published biannually, and provides information on hunting opportunities, regulations and licensing, as well as on wildlife conservation. The Digest’s big game issue is produced every spring and the waterfowl and upland game issue is produced each fall.
