    It's hunt 750. Big Valley. 8 tags. 702 applicants and if I remmeber correctly it 56 max applicats. I was one of them. 100% kill with 10 tags last yr. I have to call here back by Mon. with answer. No pressure....Funny, have filled all 14 antelope buck tags in Wy. and one in Az. but hunting then in Ca. makes me nervous.
    Any info would be appreciated.

    Don't let the state fool ya, California holds some awesome Antelope. Your decision should be a no-brainer, TAKE THE TAG especially this year when water is at a premium out there. The Antelope shoud be bunched up in the vicinity of the available water.
    Hey packer58. I called her this morning and left a msg. She called me back and I bought the tag. Got the time approved from my manager. He's not even a hunter and he said go for it. You may be waiting another 10 yrs. ! I hope I don't get drawn for a Az. deer tag now. Not enough money in my account and nor enough time ! The way my luck is going...

    Umpqua,
    The way your's and my luck has gone this year I'm not so sure ! I don't think they tried and I got rejected because of lack of funds because my bank will text me to tell mee while they cover it ( I hope) . They have done it before.
    Haven't found anybody yet that has hunted it or Ca. antelope. Got a Az. G&F email. Said the draw is done but not done charging people. They can't post results until done.

    Hey thanks to all you guys who replied to this thread !
    I shot my buck opening afternoon. Almost pulled the trigger on him opening morning. If you guys are interested in the little story about it I sent the two Game Biologist's for Lassen and Modoc Counties and the enviromental scientist who helped some I will. Working on down loading pics now. He had good mass and prongs but length I miss judged . I'm not into scores or record books and would of shot him anyway. He was the best I saw and I had a whole ranch to hunt to myself. Ton's of deer in X3A boys and girls... nice bucks too.

    Congratulations! Let's hear the story with pictures! I was a little concerned after I did not see anything from you about getting your goat. I read the stuff about lurking outside of restaurants to pick up their Wi-Fi signals, and your responding to most of the posts on this site, and I thought WTH, he must really be lonesome and not concentrating on the business at hand (LOL).

    LOL! Thanks !I got wi fi but no dam phone signal anywhere unless you had verizon...I think you told me that ! A couple good friends text me or would leave a voice mail to help with the lonesome part of it. I had to drive 8 mi. up out of town to the top of the mtn. a couple times a day to make call, texts, emails all that crap. pain in the butt when you don't have a phone that works...For you, I will post !

    Listen to you....no phone!!!!! I just love it when I'm out of touch, can't say the same tho for my wife. She says I too old to be hunting by myself and out of phone range too!!! Had to buy a SPOT to keep her happy.

    Glad you had a good hunt. 2 weeks until M/L elk and then off to Wyoming for me. What I'm really looking forward to is hunting one of the premier units for antelope here in Colorado on my way home from Wy.Only trouble is it is only open for a week.

    Thanks CC !
    That's funny. I had to stay in touch with my son who was holding down the farm ! Every time I'd get to the top of the mtn. my phone would go biserk with texts,emails and voice mails and I'd say WTF ?!? I'd be up there for a half hour dealing with them.
    CC and Saw,
    I posted a thread under antelope with a few pictures if you want to check it out.

    Same damn thing happened to me!! Had to get the SPOT and change to Verizon. Oh well, it makes it a lot quieter around the house.
