Re: Hunting In California??
It is both. All zones have a maximum amount of available tags, but some are draw only. The draw only take anywhere from 2-15+ years to get depending on the zone. if you have people you are planning on hunting with, I would suggest talking with them to see what zone you are planning on hunting in. CA DFG has done a very good job with statistics on what zones take what amount of points to get. Go to their website and take a look around. In California, we have done zones that will stand up to most zones anywhere else, but they take years to get.
X5a, X5b especially. there are other hunts that are just as awesome. but Californians call it a hunt of a life time.
I apologize for the poor grammer and punctuation but my phone doesn't work well here.
