Hunt 33 California Special Season Blacktail and Roosevelt Elk


Trophy Blacktails are hard to come by. Though California isn’t well known for its hunting heritage, the state stills harbors some overlooked hunting gems and this is one of them.

Located in Mendocino County this outfitter offers both management and trophy hunting for Blacktail deer and limited hunts for Roosevelt if the tag is drawn or a landowner tag is obtained. The ranch is approximately 12,000 acres with about half of the property enrolled in California’s Private Land Management Program (PLM). Thus, the season is literally from August 1 until December 15th. Blacktails are highly nocturnal and rut late in the year. This hunt allows clients both resident and non-resident to take advantage of hunt dates outside the state set regular seasons in California’s B-Zones.

These hunts have all been 100% successful for many years. Lodging and food is provided and this hunt can be done by people of all ages. It is a great family getaway or a solid hunt for the best trophy deer in the region.    

In recent years this ranch has become a regular home too for the Roosevelt Elk. For those of you fortunate enough to draw a Northwest California permit or able to be purchase the extremely sought after PLM permits the outfitter has; it is a great hunt. The elk quality is outstanding.
