As expected,
I drew nothing in the special hunts again. No Tule elk, no antelope and no bighorn sheep. But at least I got another point in each one.
Me and a few thousand others since California started a point system last year.

When I lived in northern CA I hunted northeast of Coos Bay, OR for tule elk. In the mid-1980's licenses were easy to buy.

Very good mulies are found in the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness of Alpine County, CA. But a 7 mile hike at 8500 feet elevation can make for burning lungs and spots before your eyes!

Nut - for me, that means I get to focus on my New Mexico mule deer hunt!


Jack - I didn't know that tule elk were ever in Oregon, or for that matter, much north of Sacramento. Rocky Mountain and Roosevelt, maybe.

I won't be a resident of California long enough to put those points to use so I didn't even apply for any special hunts here. Better luck next year guys!!
