    Pacific Hybrids... Anyone hunt them?

    Anyone else here hunt our little Southern Californian, Blacktail cousins, the pacific hybrid? They aren't much antler wise but fun to hunt while you're waiting for the fall hunts... Here's one from a while back...Click image for larger version.

    I am not intimately familiar with specific lines, however, it is basically from around Monterey to the South, along the coast to San Diego. The Southern portion of A zone, D-19, parts of D-11, D-15 and D-16... If you hunt San Diego, you're most likely hunting hybrids... Like I said, I am not the authority on the actual lines, however, there is no book category for these little deer... Either way, I find them just as smart and challenging to hunt as any other species or sub-species!

    Maybe I've gotten a couple then.....out of D-16, I was always told they were blacktails?? Either way that's a nice 3x3 you got there.Was that one taken on public land?

    True Blacktails are further to the North of us... I have been thinking about putting a high country Trinity alps hunt together for them in August someday, too much to do, so little time...

    That's what I always called them! Have heard both ways that there is an actual mixed species, but don't have a clue whats true!

    Hey Grey light, that is a nice buck, did you ever get him scored. Looks like he would make the Cali archery book.
