View Full Version : Closest Deer Hunting in SoCal

09-17-2007, 2:44 PM
Just moved to SoCal and was wondering where the closest areas to hunt Deer are? Do any of the BLM or Forrest land (that you can hunt) have good numbers on them? What about PLM land?

Will be living in OC but willing to travel a good bit to get into some good habitat. Anyone have a line on any private land (that they would be willing to share)? Any help/tips/suggestions very much appreciated. If you would rather PM that is fine too. Not asking for any honey holes (unless you feel compelled to tell me about them :D ) but would like to narrow the search down to a few places that could use a closer look.

Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!?! Nevada's closer! :43:

To the original question - Yes, there's good hunting here in California, unfortunately you're going to have to drive a bit. I'd advise checking out www.jesseshunting.com, they have a specific forum over there for Mule Deer and most of the discussion seems to be CA related.

Was thinking D13 (and D11/D15) looked promising. Anyone have experience with these zones?
