So, my Dad and I managed to pull A13 tags (archery in X7A, California) this year. I had 2 points, Dad had 3. We were out scouting a couple days last week. Saw a total of 13 deer, 11 one day and 2 the next. Our original count was 3 does, 1 spike, 1 4x4, 1 3x3 and 7 forks. However, upon reviewing photos I think a recount is necessary: 3 does, 1 spike, 1 4x4, 1 4x3, 2 3x3, and 5 forks. I'm not ready to reveal locations but am attaching photos (these are mine, still waiting to receive Dad's; I'll update when I do):

Note the next two pair of photos are different sets of deer in the same group. First two "facing each other"

Looks like it'll be a good hunt for you guys congratulations. Are you guys going to spot and stalk or setup some stands?
