    That's why they call it ESTIMATED hunter success.

    I wonder if they estimate higher, for those who may not turn in their filled tags.

    They're "estimates" are significantly higher than the actual kill numbers from returned tags. Why is this when you are required to turn in a successful tag when successful? Inflating the kill % only means one thing to me in Ca,,,,,,$$$.

    There are always errors in the digest. A while back a friend of mine had a sheep tag and he ended up not killing a sheep. The next year it showed a 100% success rate for the hunt. After that we take the digest info with a grain of salt.

    Also, this year's digest has 2014 tag #'s listed. I have no idea where some of those numbers came from because most of these #s haven't even been discussed within the CDFW yet. Someone literally made many, if not all, of the 2014 tag numbers up.

    I know that some of the tag numbers proposed for this year are bogus because I called my contact in the dept to discuss the tag numbers for specific hunt based on the info in the digest and this person said he had no idea where those numbers came from as they haven't even discussed them yet. I and other rely on these published numbers to make decisions on hunts and it's hard to do when they're not accurate.

    I'm pretty sure that final approved quotas will be posted on the fish and game website prior to the application deadline pretty sure they did last year but you have to really look for them because the website is so user friendly

    Instead of providing so much miss led information they should wait till it can be accurate to publish. It's kind a ridiculous just to slap a bunch of crap together if you have to check back later.

    Too bad they didn't cut the tags in half. Shouldn't have to deal with 700-900 deer hunters in a hard to draw zone. I grew up hunting that area and the last time I had the tag was 03'. Haven't applied since. I flew out there to help a buddy in 2009 and was disappointed in the quality we saw.
