Mule Deer Hunting
Inland Deserts Region
Lead CDFW biologists: Jane McKeever, Tim Taylor, Mike Morrison
As a part of managing deer in California, CDFW staff have developed hunting regulations that allow for deer harvest. The Inland Deserts Region has 8 deer hunt zones and another 9 additional special hunts that are within some of these zones.
Before you select a hunt to apply for, there are many things to consider like hunting regulations, the procedures to apply for a deer tag, and hunt-specific statistics such as hunter success and antler class of bucks harvested.
- See Zone Specific Maps and Information for hunt maps, zone boundaries, land owner and useful landmarks.
- Mammal hunting regulations contain regulations for deer, bear and other big game mammals, as well as small game mammals.
- Big Game Hunting Digest outlines application procedures, hunter success, and antler class, as well as proposed big game hunting regulations for the upcoming season.
- Guide to Hunting Deer in California is a great resource for all deer hunters.
