X-10 has been, for years, running a 4% success rate; last year, after years, it rose again to 10%. The deer are dispersed throughout the zone during the general season. However the majority of the deer are in the western portion of the zone, during the general season. There are lots of well known spots for bucks, and the zone does have some nice bucks. But, the zone is a tough tough hunt. The zone is in drought type conditions, with some seeps drying out. But in general, you can still get water from most seeps, it just might take a little work and time. A lot of people hunt the high country passes and surrounding areas, but if you want to get away from the crowds, I would hit remote areas of the Kern Plauto. The zone is very much like a pine-ed desert, so camping near water will be essential for you.
