Can someone tell me if there is a spot in Bodega Bay that is open to the public for archery deer hunting? I will be up there sometime this week and might have time to do some hunting. I will be somewhere along the coastline so anywhere close to the coastline would be ideal. Again, I don't want anyone's honey hole, just a general idea on where I should go and try.

It's mostly all private land up there, or a park you cant hunt.

Nothing public around here, except for the prestigious Lake Sonoma hunt. About the closest thing to Sonoma county would be Cache Creek, Cow Mountain BLM or Mendocino National Forest.

Exactly as jryeo says. No public land hunting in that area at all, which is a huge bummer for us locals. Nearest public land with an A Zone tag is Cow Mountain, Knoxville, Cache Creek, Indian Valley Reservoir.

Bummer. My brother was in Bodega Bay this past weekend and saw a couple really nice looking bucks. With all the answers I'm receiving, I guess I won't be bringing my bow. Thanks guys.

gott aknow some one in this area unfortunately. I moved down here about 10 years ago from the vast open have at it lands of Nor-cal (Redding) and thought ok this won't be so bad. some of it even reminds me of the hills back hom but any amount of driving ends in alot of backing down dirt roads after you hit the locked gates and alot of no tresspassing signs. I tried putting up adds on craigslist and talking to anybody that would listen and well i still drive back home to hunt. sorry i could not be of any real help.


it's a beautiful area though and there are some amazing bucks to be seen. before i moved there was a booner i used to see every once in a while while i was walikng the dogs. he knew i had a blood lust for him too.

Amazing bucks indeed. Well, it was just one buck but it was still amazing LOL. My family and I drove around the jetty to have a look around, did a bit of swimming, fishing, and crabbing. But, on the drive to the jetty, I spotted a nice 3X4 buck with a couple does on the side of the hill. Too bad the area is not open to any hunting at all. Would have loved to bag that buck. Anyhow, the trip turned out awesome and everyone had a great time.
