I also live in Sacramento. I've always hunted D-5, but in past years I was lucky enough to draw X-12 two years in a row, until the PP system. Now I have Max points for deer and I've been trying to draw M-3. I've been out of state a few times. I plan to backpack into hunt SW colorado again this year for deer, maybe OTC elk if I don't draw my deer tag. I belong to Maya Archers in Roseville, so if any of you Sacramento area guys are interested you should look them up. It great to have a club in the area.
