Public Lands

There's a lot of public land in California, Oregon and Washington and the majority of it holds Blacktail deer. Every year big bucks are taken from BLM land, National Forests and wilderness areas. If you do your homework and hunt hard, you just might get lucky and kill a monster.

The Payne Ranch is adjacent to the Cache Creek Wilderness and together the two areas host a large tule elk herd and the second largest wintering bald eagle population in California.
