    Why not California?
    We have some of the biggest bucks around.
    Steep nasty hot hunt in A zone.
    If you hunt the b zones the weather is better but if you get some rain it's a different story. Bucks everywhere.
    I've seen some monsters but never got a shot at one. Hopefully this is my year.

    Well as you see there are plenty of options on the table for you but I figured I would just throw out my 2cents and also ask you why not California? Plenty of big blacktail here on both public and private. Just throwing it out there but my archery buck from a few seasons ago was just scored by Roger Selner which was 180 1/2". If you decide on which state you want to hunt I would be more than happy to provide any info I may have.

    Was this a blacktail score?

    When you decide to go let me know, I do know some things about hunting Blacktails that may help you out. I wouldn't discount Cali though, there are some monsters that come from there according to the record books. Southern Or has some good one too though.
