I'll be drawing a northern X zone this season. A solid 4x4 or better shouldn't be too hard on that tag, but I have a streak that will ride on coastal Blacktails come July. Looking to make it 8 four-points (to at least one side) in a row.
On the border with points on a x zone tag this year, if that is drawn 4x4 or better. 2nd tag will be a b-zone tag with a 3x3 or better.
I probably wont get drawn for my first two choices (G-6 and D-12) and get stuck with my third choice D-14. I'll buy my second tag for D-14 as well (Like a dummy, can't resist because its hunt'in in my back yard!!) I'll shoot first legal buck I see with first tag (Usually a forkie) and will shoot some sort of non typical with my second tag!! That is what I'm predicting.
Do you go scouting in D14 at all BigShot?
I hunt the closer D zones too. I can go hunting for a day if it's a 2-2 1/2 hour drive, but a 5+ hour drive and I'd have to take more time off work, etc. And I need the money for hunting, haha.
Probably the deer I want the most is a big California non-typical buck, with a drop tine or too. Those are the coolest IMO.
Should draw my Xzone tag this year and will pick up a Dtag on my second. I would love to say 4pt or better for me but we'll see what happens when they walk out in front of me.
I drew a X zone last year, so that is out of the picture. D3-5 for me . Maybe a antelope tag. I've got 8 points...not enough...just need to be lucky!
Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.
