This Saturday is opening day in Zone D8. This is the zone around our cabin, and it’s not a terribly great zone to hunt. But it is my “home” zone. When I don’t have enough preference points to draw a premium zone, this is where we hunt.
We’ll be up there with my friend Nick and his two boys and daughter. I’ll have my son Will with me. It should be a good time.
My one concern at this point is the fire burning in Kings Canyon, which has spread now to be fairly close to where I intended to hunt. I am hoping that the forest service has not closed the area. The website seems to indicate that it’s still open.
I’ll be going for a bear this year as well. I’ve identified some high meadows that I intend to stake out. We’ll see how it goes.
