    I went out scouting a new area and placed some trail cameras out. I was able to obtain some pictures of a decent buck that survived the season, I can't for the 2018 season!

    Haha we are still lucky they sell tags, especially since the numbers are still so low. But I hope you get that buck! He is a good looking buck!

    Deer hunting used to be pretty good in southern California. My family settled in Orange County in the 1880's and were all hunters. I have taken deer in the Angeles & Cleveland NF's and the Malibu Mts. Unfortunately access in a lot of the areas that still hold lots of deer in nonexistent because of private property. The USFS also closes a lot of the area because of fire hazard. There also used to be a good herd of bighorn sheep in the Angeles NF.

    Here is a picture of a really nice 5x5 buck taken by my Dad in Malibu.

    Very nice buck!! I have hunted the Malibu Beach area before approximately 20 years ago with a bow and seen some dandy bucks. I hunted the area behind Pepperdine University. It's all posted now and owned by a movie director.....bummer. We have taken some giants in the San Bernardino Mtns just nothing compared to the Colorado bucks I have taken in the past is what I was referring too. The bucks in the San Bernardino Mtns are the same size and shape of our coastal blacktail deer. I know because I do Taxidermy and the blacktail forms is what fits our local bucks best. Here are some of the bigger trophies taken by myself and my family in D14 within the last decade.

    My Dad was Superintendent of the P-51 Mustang assembly line at North American during WWII (kept him out of the war, was to valuable in his job). He bought 10 acres in Malibu near Paradise Cove. I remember spending weekends there. Tons of deer back then. Dad drilled 3 wells, but no water. He sold it in 1950. He told me a women owned a big ranch towards Santa Monica. She was from Utah and brought in some mule deer from there and turned them loose on her place. This buck really does not look anything like the typical coastal deer. Urban legend...who knows!
