    Nice buck. What part of California? I grew up in and hunted Marin, Napa and Mendocino counties .

    I was hunting on my property so there wasn't much work. I live in the Sierra foothills about 30 miles east of Sacramento near Placerville. I was able to get my Samurai within about 40 yds of him. I'm so out of shape from the surgeries I about puked trying to lift him my vehicle. The 25 th I'm headed to Oregon for Mule Deer so I'll get a workout there.

    That's a nice blacktail DL, I've been chasing them all over D5 & D6 the last few weeks, made some stalks on some dandy ones but the moment of truth never happened, but of course I'm hunting public land ;). I have a few friends in the Placerville area with some land as well, I bet you know them.

    Congratulations DL. Rifle season for California blacktail opens on the 15th of Sept. & goes to Oct 21st. If you want an Elk or Mule deer you have to enter into special drawings and you only get a tag after you reach enough points, waiting for years to get a tag.
