###I Know D-11 deer are suposed to be of the "California mule deer" variety, but I have seen some resemble both blacktail, and mule deer. I have taken 2 bucks from the eastern part of the zone within 5 miles of each other. One has a very dark coat,dark line down his nose, and light antlers. The other the typical muley tan and white configuration with darker grayish forks. My taxidermist had an old 3x4 that I would have sworn was a regular blacktail with that dark coat and blacktail basket type rack. I believe it was taken in the same general area. Has anybody else seen these genetic combinations in this zone?

Brian,

Here's some pics of deer near San Dimas. I have seen some deer that have the blacktail traits you describe. I'll see if I can find some pcis of them.

Spectr17, thanks for those pics did you take them with one of those automatic game trail cameras? Do you ever use a doe/fawn call on these deer. I've got one, and I would think this is the right time of year to try it. Does' should be pretty receptive to a lost fawn. Not for hunting of course I just want to get out and look for those big ears peering over the manzanita. I'm dying to get away from the shop and get out among'em. Brian ### ###
