No That is a C zone buck. I live in Paradise, Ca.Nice buck! I'd be happy to take one like that anywhere in Calif. Glad to see it happened for you. You live in Zone A. Is that where you took this guy?
I took one in X7b some years back with a 243 / Barnes 85gr TSX; neck shot at about 80 yards, went down like the ground swallowed him up.
