it is for any bull area in the north. but the deer tag isn't a "northern tag" it falls in the same area as the northern any bull area. for example grouse creak area is a northern deer tag but with the buck/bull combo doesn't aply to it for deer. you'd have to check the maps on the dwr website to see for sure where you can hunt. which also means that you can hunt deer in parts of a north eastern deer tag as well
It is almost like cheating. Great for the 2,000 hunters who have the tags, but sucks to be the rest of us who have to hunt the spooked left overs! The opener is kind of like hunting the second weekend of the open hunt. My son has a Northern tag, and I am trying to decide if it is worth going as the area we hunt has already seen a lot of deer hunters.
I would prefer that the combo tags hunt the general deer hunt dates and be able to shoot elk as well. That way everybody gets the same odds.
