Where are you coming from?
You will have all sorts of options that fit your criteria without having to draw a tag. The Mendocino NF would be your closest area to Sac to hunt true blacktails with an okay chance at success while backpack hunting. It gets HOT during the rifle season, and your best bet would be to hunt the last week or second to last week. That country gets a lot of pressure, but the animals are there. You may want to think about extending that 3-5 mile distance to 5+ for a much better chance to harvest. There are tons of road hunters, and also quite a few guys 3 miles in throughout the season. The hardest part about hunting that country is staying positive day after day of not seeing anything, but you just have to be persistent and don't get lax in glassing. There's tons of timber country for them to hide in, but sooner or later one will show.
You can download unit overlays for GE, and then use the GE forest boundary feature on top of that. A general B tag will allow you to hunt all B zones.
