California Blacktail Deer Hunts

Details

This is a five day fully guided and outfitted hunt for a trophy or a two day fully guided and outfitted hunt for a management blacktail (if not successful we can extend the hunt). The hunt includes transportation to and from the field, drinks, and snacks. Once successful, the hunt also includes field dressing of your animal as well as transportation of the meat to a local butcher if needed.

We accommodate all skill and fitness levels.

What to bring

-Valid California hunting license

-Valid California A zone deer tag (over the counter) or Archery-Only tag (if bow hunting)

-Archery equipment or rifle (.243 caliber or larger) with non lead ammo

-Hiking boots

-Warm jacket

-Binoculars for glassing

What to Expect

Hunters can expect to be out in the field approximately 30 minutes before legal shooting light and be out of the field a few minutes after legal shooting light ends with a break for lunch in the middle of the day. Hunters can expect to see deer and other wildlife while out hunting on our leases.

We typically spot and stalk deer unless archery equipment is being used, then we will most likely sit near water. We hope to catch deer early on and late in the day, as they move from feeding and bedding areas. We will most likely spot deer on brushy hillsides and oak covered rolling hills, as well as agriculture flatland and juniper covered country.

You can expect to see a plethora of does and fawns and a number of young bucks while out on your hunt, and the occasional trophy class buck. We accommodate all skill levels and fitness levels on our hunts.

You can expect shots to be anywhere from 50 yards to 250 yards with potential for distances of 400+ yards depending on skill level or 20 yards to 60 yards with archery equipment
