    X9c or X10 for mule deer in California

    I have two points and what to hunt an X zone; these are what I'm thinking. Any suggestions?

    Just my opinion, hold out for 1 more year and go for X12. Many more deer and still a chance at 180"+. Or if you are bow hunters go for X12 this year.

    Yeah I'll take that thought into consideration. What is the best zone you can draw with two points in your opinion?

    Depends on what kind of hunting you want to do. If you are willing to hunt hard in the back country then I would draw X8. If you like to do outfitted hunts either drop camp or fully then let me know and I can connect you with JC High Country in there. The numbers of deer have been down in there for a while but they are coming back and there are some toads in there.

    I definitely wouldn't waste your points on X-10 you could probably draw that with no points if it was your first choice.

    Not too many deer from that unit have ever measured 180"+ in it's history........but a 150" caliber deer is possible in that unit with some luck.

    I would prefer more open country with a lot of glassing opportunities. We are in good physical shape and would like to get as far away
    From the roads and crowds as possible
