Depends on what I draw here in Colorado, but I am considering going back to my old stomping grounds for a winderness hunt in D7 with my cousins. Got the itch to hunt and see that great country again! D7 tags are not draw, otc until allocation is sold out. Havn't checked yet, but used to be able to get an extra tag if they were not sold out.

Will not be coming to Cal. Drew my Colorado Antelope tag...took 12 pts. Wyoming first for 3 goats, then stop on the way home for the Co. goat. Will be gone about 2 weeks. Then elk here too. Maybe next year.

If I draw NV, G3,x9a,d3-5 for deer, Del Norte Bull, Lassen antelope

If I don't draw NV, x3b for deer, Del Norte Bull, Lassen antelope.

Its all dependent on the NV draw for me this year.

M4, East Park Reservoir Bull elk, Lassen Period 2 for antelope, and San Gorgonio Mountains for sheep

Since I'm going on 2 out of state hunts "Ut buck deer and Wy doe antlope", I'll just grab points and a local D zone tag for deer and bear tag here in CA.....and it's a long shot in the dark but I put in for CA desert bighorn. That about sums it up for this fall.

Trying for the G38 (X10 late season). got drawn last year with no points, so I'm hoping to do the same this year. D8 for my second tag. Hitting the high country of D8 for archery and rifle for sure. Had some great opportunities and got a 3x4 last rifle season up there.

I think the proper term would be I apply for California. I have killed I mean harvested :) a Gillion ducks and chukar there though. It is another state to apply to open up hunting opportunitys in the future.

Didn't draw Navada still have Wyoming left for deer and antelope and points in Colorado. For cali trying some new units. X6b for deer, East park for elk, Clear lake for antelope, and I forget the sheep unit. Really would like to draw a Cali antelope tag. Hunting those speed goats is just so much fun

Put in for Doyle muzzleloader with max points.

Should draw X9A based on previous experience. I have already drawn X9A (or A16 for archery) 7 times and have taken 5 Mulies. But like anywhere else you have to put your homework in. This year I am looking at a little different approach, usually I do a lot of spot and stalk and a lot of day hiking (leave well before sunrise and glass from a high vantage point). This year I have been searching a few places to set up a base camp and hunt a ways from others. For the past few years the deer seem to be getting deeper and deeper back aways from their usually places so if you can't beat them, join them. I have a few places in mind and plan on spending the 2 week period of time around my b'day in July for a scout/get-away with the misses (haven't yet figured out why that woman has put up woth me for so many years, but thank God she has).

Also put in for a sheep tag and an Elk tag, but I won't hold my breath. But those tags do get issued, I drew a Tule Elk tag in '96 and took a beautiful 6x8 bull that's hanging on the wall above me right now and took my first Pronghorn in '09 in Cali, so those tags do get issued even those it doesn't seem like it to many. I wasn't going to put in for sheep this year, but changed my mind after reading a t-shirt from Bugle magazine ("You don't quit hunting because you get old, you get old because you quit hunting"). But I do believe that this will be my last go at it. Figure this might be my last year of hunting bull Elk too, at least by myself. I have an Elk tag for the Big Horns this fall (to go along with that X9A tag and should draw Antelope tags in Wyoming as well), but since I'm doing the Elk hunt by myself I am also going to check for a source to help pack an Elk out by horse if I am successful. I would say it's hell to get old, but I would rather say "it ain't the years, its' the mileage".

Good luck to all this fall, hunt hard, but hunt safe.
