That time of the year again to see how many rejections I can acquire…. 91 applications for myself, how bout y’all?
I agree, liked it better when you could only apply for one hunt per category. spread things around a bit. The state finally saw it as a money maker and changed it.....but like most I have been in it for a while so I am going to stick with it at least it provides an avenue for a hunt!As we accumulate more and more points, I find I'm being more selective on the hunts I apply for. Not living there (or even close) makes risking all the points on an average hunt a down side. Besides, I liked it a lot better when you had to only put in for one hunt per category. Seems we were a lot more successful back then.
FYI... Take lots of mosquito spray and a headnet! The mosquitos are the size of hummingbirds down there!!!Well, unexpected but welcomed. Drew Atascosa and Aransas first archery….
Both are really fun hunts.Well, unexpected but welcomed. Drew Atascosa and Aransas first archery….
Yeah I’m stoked for the chance at a Nilgai in Atascosa…. Aransas I’m on the fence about after reading the reviewsBoth are really fun hunts.
I've heard folks say a short tripod stand can be helpful for hunting the brush of both places. Of course you have to haul the thing.
Those hunts separate the men from the boys. I would mount a doe if I killed one at Aransas!
Needing to pay my permit fee for a drawn hunt is not a problem I have this time ☹️If you drew any of the premium gun hunts this morning, you might not want to wait until the last day to get your permit this time!!
I was down on St Croix for a medical mission, I think the internet service down there had something to do with the problem.If you drew any of the premium gun hunts this morning, you might not want to wait until the last day to get your permit this time!!
White Oak is going to be fairly thick woods, with a lot of oak trees. A tree stand can be helpful to possible see farther and help with hiding your scent from game.I got lucky in the second draw for gun deer but it’s for the White Oak Creek WMA. Anyone have any insights here?
Most of the odds were crap to start with but it didn't helpI have 19 points in one category! Ever since they started allowing more than one app per category just so they can collect another $3, the draw odds have gone to crap.
Well it is official, no TPWD draw hunts for me this year. Lucky to have a place to shoot a whitetail and hog on family land.10 remaining applications in the system. I'm feeling lucky!
I have not been there but I think that is the unit that borders the Laguna Madrea salt water). Take something to prevent rust on rifle!Anyone been in the Laguna Atascosa - Bahia Grande unit?
Thank you. First time applicant in Texas. Great turn around time! My application status says pending 2nd draw. What does that mean? Don’t get me wrong - I certainly didn’t expect to draw.They drew bighorn sheep on November 2nd.
How was the Dec Chap hunt other than hot?I'll be taking my grandson to the Chaparral in Dec, he drew.

I was lucky and got drawn for the Spring turkey hunt at San Angelo State Park next April. I drew this same tag about 22 years ago and planning to even the score after getting shut out by the San Angelo Longbeards way back when. This is actually the 3rd time I've drawn a Spring turkey hunt in Texas. Keep on applying and sooner or later your name will get drawn!
