Thats a nice buck your buddy took CC, hopefully one of these days I'll get drawn for Zone D17. I decided to hunt the San Gorgonio Wilderness in Zone D-14 with my second tag. Ive been busy working OT so I can purchase my backpacking gear!!
I've always thought about hunting that wilderness area too, you just have to get permits from the Forestry service. My buddys uncle that has been hunting D-14 for 30 years told me he has never got a monster from that area? Have you heard different?
