Hunting season ends this weekend at the Tomales Bay Ecological Reserve. Three miles north of Point Reyes Station, these wetlands are at the center of a controversy. Dueling petitions are circulating: one asks the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to ban hunting, the other to protect it. Image courtesy of Flickr user Scott Calleja.
