A few years back I hunted one of the CA "D" zones right up at the Oregon Border.
Saw four does in 7 days. Saw maybe a thousand cat tracks and least 10 sets of eyes after dark that were obviously cats.
Made a move and saw some bucks that were pushed right down into a campground.
Checked the area only a few hundred yards away from the CG and it was littered with cat tracks.
I think Colorado Cowboy and I could hang out,,, I like his thought process
I remember when I grew up in California when they were classed as vermin/predators and it was shoot on sight, then the tree huggers started to take over.

If your not getting many/any night pics of deer it's a good indication of a healthy cat population for sure.
They only eat the sick and weak deer in the area, otherwise they just eat mice, sparrows and graze on grasses; we all know that. Look how majestic.
Man this place is a joke
