Where is Aguanga? And right Diane what is being hunted near Temecula?

Pig and Turkey are regularly hunted in and around Temecula.

Hi Becca. Aguanga is about 8-10 miles east of Temecula via Highway 79 (Temecula Pkwy).

I hunt quail out there all the time, not to mention the DFG recently purchased a few hundred acres in Temecula Wine Country specifically for hunting. If not for the hunter the the deceased may have never been found. Your welcome granola eaters!

Don't forget deer hunting! Alive and well east of Temecula in the hills around Vail Lake. And yes, you have to buy tags, and it is legal. You're welcome Sierra Clubbers, Hunters provide 75% of monies for conservation, land management, etc.

Isn't this about the body found, not the hunting?? stay on subject kids

Gun hysteria in 5, 4, 3, 2....

Hunting is a great tradition in the area, you newcomer. I shoot all the time at my firing range at the back of my property.
LBV Collins December 03, 2012 at 04:35 PM
Damn Lash! That sounds cool! I live in city proper and have to drive to Riverside or Oceanside to get to a firing range. You just get to walk out your back door. (Uh-oh... I have firing range envy.)

If they look real hard I am sure they will find that is not the only human buried out there! After living in Aguanga I soon realized TRUTH is stranger than FICTION!

At the 3 way stop I got rear ended by someone in a white SUV type vehicle, the white guy face was red. My bumper is coming off now. I wish he would pay for it...

I didnt know that hunting was still allowed out there either. Quail is right up my alley and havent done it in years. Am floored you can even still deer hunt out there too. Does anyone actually bag one? You are right about those fee's Rick and I am sure they are a hellavalot more expensive when they were 30 years ago. Carlo spot on. Someones loved one has been found, very sad, and obviously out there for at least 3 months to be bones only. I hope they can identify who it is and not another victim of the S&M bondage folks on trial in San Diego. Murder's usually dump in and around the same locations so they can easily visit all of them Shannon so I would not be surprised at all if there are more bodies out there. Actually I would put money on there being a few bodies out on our more rural roadways. Easy fast access off the freeway and back on. RIP whoever you are :/ Hopefully someone knows something.

Have seen huge amount of wild Turkeys out in that area, But finding a body doesnt surprise me , Its pretty rural out in that area and Very Dark at night for anyone who has driven the hwy back there!! Its creepy to think that this happens more frequently than many people realize, as any cop!!
S Smith December 04, 2012 at 02:15 AM
Carlo, why do you have to end it on a negative. I may be what you call a "Granola Eater", too,LOL But I also was raised to enjoy shooting for sport if not for hunting. And to have respect for gun handling and safety. Wouldnt it be sad to find out the person was accidentaly shot by a hunter? Oh by the way my comment above should say ASK any Cop, about the finding of remains , We have heard of this all along the border areas with Cartel activity, and they dont always cover them up!

Exactly Katherine D. I'm just glad that it wasn't a few small children playing out there who stumbled upon the bones of the body.
Katy December 04, 2012 at 09:06 PM
I too live in the area for over18 years. Not the first body found in our area. Won't probably be the last-sadly. We are rural and very dark at night. A perfect place to dump a body or whatever. Yes we also have a shooting range on the back of our place.
Diane December 05, 2012 at 06:37 AM
Wow, all I asked was what was being hunted near Temecula,,, it's amazing how people just assume. I'm all for NRA and the 2nd ammend. I was just asking a question... And comparing hunting to a firing range in your backyard,,, really. So, quail, turkey, deer. thank you.
