California Blacktail

Jerry Springer

We are constantly looking for the toughest of all deer hunts, the California Blacktail Deer. We have just added the 37,500 acre Dye Creek Preserve to our lineup. Dye Creek offers a late G-1 season typically opening in late October and running 9 days through the first weekend in November. We offer three-day hunts that include lodging, food and transportation once at the location.

We also have ranches here in California that participate in the PLM (Private Lands Management) program where we do quite a few habitat projects in exchange for special late season hunts that incorporate the “Rut” and “migration”. These hunts are very limited and sometimes sell out a year in advance. There is no draw for these “special” tags as we exchange an ordinary over the counter tag for one of these prestigious tags! These hunts usually take place in late October and continue through the beginning part of December.
