We are very excited to announce our newest INSIDER state: California. Every state we add to INSIDER has it's own challenges in and are vastly different when it comes to units, draw process and regulations – and California will add great value to people looking for another state to hunt. Like our other states, you’ll have Filtering 2.0 to decide where to apply and hunt with filters for trophy potential, draw odds, harvest success, weapon type, season dates and a lot more. Then be prepared to jump into our standalone Draw Odds page for even more draw odds data.
California has eight big game species and has giant units across the state for each of those species. You will not only get an analysis of units, sub-units and seasons, but also species breakdowns with interactive graphs, plus a State Profile that outlines how to apply and the fees associated with applying in California and Species Breakdowns for each big game species in California.
If you play your cards right, California could be a great state to look at for additional hunting opportunities when it comes to deer hunting.
We also have California Draw Odds for all species and all residencies. As always, our data science team was hard at work making sure that California draw odds meet the same rigorous standards as all of our other states.
Like our other states, we will be releasing extensive Application Strategy Articles for California. We’ll cover everything from the basics, to hidden gems, all the way up to better ways to manage your points.

Let us know your thoughts on California. It’s pretty addictive to research a new state and possibly plan an out-of-state hunting trip. Best of luck the rest of this hunting season and good luck in the California draw.
