Well, Final got my deer on the last day of the season, with 2hrs let of day light. A small forked horn. Probably the smallest horned deer that I've killed, but a good meat deer. How did all the other california deer hunters do this year?

Congrats Joe!!!

Still saiting on the second half of A-22, and I also drew an M6 tag for the December muzzleloader season. So, I'll let you know in a month or 2 how I did...... Yes

Does look like a heck of alot of nice buck being taken down here during the D-16 season though......

In D7 not good as far as I know. I only saw one small fork in a week of wilderness hunting.

When I lived in CA I hunted D7 for several years. Always saw legal bucks and my buddy has filled his tag each year for probably the last 10 years. He got a nice 9 point this year that was the smalled in the bunch. You just have to get away from the roads and the crouds. Don't be scared to wear some rubber off the boots. Hunt the high country early and low country when the snows hit hard and push them down.
I would rather chase CA blacktails over these VA deer anyday.

absolutely! People road hunt too much and are afraid of a challenge. 80% of the fun is venturing back to areas that hardly anyone see's anyways. Happy hunting!
