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.
