Not so many this year with all the crap at the border
and my Mom in the last stages of Dementia.
This too, shall pass.

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.

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!

And for some reason, I miss the unsuccessful postcards...unsuccessful now is just boring

Well, unexpected but welcomed. Drew Atascosa and Aransas first archery….
Both 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!

Yeah I’m stoked for the chance at a Nilgai in Atascosa…. Aransas I’m on the fence about after reading the reviews

I've had friends kill nilgai there at Laguna Atascosa. Aransas is a place every hunter should experience at least once.

Well…. I tried to login in through the email link to pay the fee and kept getting server down error. Called multiple times on Thursday and Friday and nobody would answer. Come Monday lady answers and says my tag was released to the second draw and nothin she can do…
No wonder people hate public hunting in Texas.

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 know your pain with that. When we were in Virgin Gorda a few years ago, I had to have my work phone with me because of a project we had going. It was 1-3 days sometime, before texts and emails were delivered. That same year, I was in Kazhakstan and transfers were almost instantaneous. Go figure!!
