'Thought I saw this on here, but can't find it. I got an email that the TPWD draw hunts are now open for applications. I did my usual ones. Y'all watch for me on that bighorn hunt this year. grin

I just got on a lease with some limited mule deer opportunities, but I didn't want to lose my points, so I put in for mule deer again. I'll probably draw this year. If I remember correctly, you don't use your license tag for a drawn hunt kill, do you?

I've gone on a couple deer hunts and as I recall my tags were never used, the game manager tagged the deer.

On pulling the appropriate tag from your License for a kill on the Lottery Hunts...the answer is NO, your TX Hunting License & Tags remain intact and Lottery Hunt Harvested Critters are not charged against the License.

TPW issues you a seperate Permit Letter, and tags the harvested critter with a metal strip indicating to a TX GW or Processor the origin of the harvested critter...and I assume the same holds for out of state Lottery Hunt participants too. BHDT lots of times and never got a cross eyed look from anyone.

So It's worth actually applying? I'm just looking at some right now. Do you see game? Is there actually a chance of killing something?

Absolutely. Go for it. In my limited experience, if you hunt hard, slow, and patiently, you will see game. And the state employee that's in charge will do everything possible to ensure you have a good experience. This is exceedingly rare in a government employee. It may take a few years, but apply.

You'll go far my son. Keep applying. And as soon as you can, start applying in the western mountain states, MT, WY, UT, CO, etc.

Honestly, I'm not sure if I want to. Isn't it super expensive, gear wise and all? I'd rather just hunt in TX.
Then again, the way the draw works over there, I'll probably be a successful lawyer by the time my number is up, and I won't have to worry about that! Lol.
