    anyone Hunting D8 deer?

    I am new to eastmans and was wondering if anyone here hunts deer in California zone D8. I live in the heart of this zone but have always hunted in zone b6 with great success. I am newly married and due to that I will be sticking close to home this year. can anyone point me in the right direction? I am open to hiking and using stock.

    I wish I could help out however I am also looking for some help
    On the zone. It will be my first hunt in d8 as well. I'll be hitting
    The Sherman pass area just because the location of our
    Property in Kennedy meadows. Hopefully it's not too crowded
    For archery opener. I heard rifle is crazy with hunters so I'll
    Avoid that scene. My plan is too look at the map and hike in
    The direction that has no road access near by and look for water.
    Best of luck. Maybe see u out there!!

    I have hunted this zone since I was old enough to legally hunt. The Deer herd is suffering bad. There are some big bucks in this zone, some on public land and a good number on the private property in the foothills. If you can get permission to hunt somewhere in the foothills you will be doing good, most landowners do not allow access.Keep in mind that this zone has 8,000 tags with very low probability of hunter success, if I remember right the hunter success rate is around 8%. Basically any public land that you can access with a vehicle is not really worth hunting, this zone has a very high number of road hunters and opening weekend of season will be very busy. High country is usually good if you hit it at the right time.
