I was lucky enough to draw the California A11 archery tag. I am now starting the planning and scouting process. I have never been up that way and was wondering if anyone has hunted or scouted it recently.

I am looking to shoot my first buck. Of course I would like it to be a big one, but I will also not hesitate to put an arrow in the first legal buck I can get a clean shot on.

I am thinking I want to hunt the timber areas more than the open sagebrush flats.

If anyone has any info they could share on this zone it would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if anyone would be interested but, me and a group of guys hunted Clear Lake Zone 2 Antelope last year and I would be more than happy to share what we learned.

Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone this season!

I have seen some monster muleys in the Hungry Creek area. Also the north east and east of Antelope Lake are good as well.

Thanks for the info. I have heard from a few people that the Antelope Lake area is good.

The top of the summit up from Milford also holds some nice bucks. Bring your shotgun also, as itsloaded with quail. As I recall, the canyon was called Cottonwood? The rd up the Milford Grade is a decent dirt rd, but I wouldnt haul a trailer up there. Antelope lk has a nice campground, and it burned a few times in the lastcpl of years. Fished it a few weeks ago as Ive been stuck working the prison, and the fishin g was alright. Seen quite a few deer at Antelope, no horns though. With the amt of deer I saw, thewres gotta be plenty of bucks in there.

I can't tell you the amount of times I have bagged a limit of quail and shot a deer in the same day. Oh, wait....yes I can: None!!

However, I HAVE bagged a deer once, or we have gotten deer in our camp and were glad to have shotguns for the post-deer quail hunt. I never go into the woods without a 12 guage. But then again I'm not an archery hunter.

I believe it would be technically illegal to have a shotgun with you while archery hunting.

Gun shots may work to your disadvantage, but they can also work to your advantage.
