Deer hunting and bear hunting are a long tradition at Kennedy Meadows. Hunting trips are offered in D-6, X-12, X-8, and D-5 zones. The season starts in mid August for archery, and mid September for rifle season. Success for rifle hunters has been around 40% - 50% in the past 10 years. Backcountry hunting offers a quality hunting experience away from crowds and may have great fishing as an added bonus. Call early for reservations.
