I would stay away from the circus in Holcomb Valley, though.
Mountain lions? In all the years I have spent up there, I have only seen one. Ran across the road in front of my car. You are not likely to encounter one while hunting.

I appreciate the enthusiasm and support. I have maps, as well as OnX and have been out to the area. The main reason why I'm looking for a guide more than anything is in case I get lucky and bag something. I'm not sure I will be able to field dress the deer by myself. I've watched plenty of videos on how to do it, but watching and doing aren't the same and I just don't want to mess it up. Also, wanted someone with me for safety. I've been an upland bird guy up until now. Are you familiar with D14? Is it safe to solo hunt? Should I bring a side-arm? My main concern is mountain lions. I saw one years ago when chuckar hunting in the red mountains by Ridgecrest. I wasn't too concerned about it, but I wasn't hunting solo either.
