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.
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!
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?
How was the Dec Chap hunt other than hot?
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!
