Hi all:
I am going again for Quail hunting this coming Saturday and trying to find out a question that I could not get clear answer from DFG regulation. Could you guys provide me with a bit information or I should call and ask a Game warden?

Here is my question, I have saw many cotton tail rabbit at our hunting ground. I read the regulation that we are allow to use pistol to hunt rabbit. ( hunint ground not in Los Angeles county) . Reg said the bullet to hunt big game should be soft point and lead free. Can I use FMJ bullet to hunt the rabbit? I do not want to carry my 44 mag or 38 special to hunt rabbit. I wish to carry my 9mm to hunt rabbits. Am I allow to do that? I am going to carry the 10 rounds magzine only and I understand I can not use pistol to hunt small game birds but Coyote or rabbit only. Can anyone help please? Thanks

Just found the south coast DFG contact info and e-mail them the questions. Hope to hear back from them soon. Thanks
