FM 142...Haven't hunted this SP before, but I suspect it'll be similar to Guad River SP's as they are both high traffic day use tourist/camper destinations. Guad River & Honey Creek are just south as the crow flies of Inks and I've been at GRSP several times.
If possible do a walk thru the day before checkin - even if the Blind Setup areas are in Off Limits areas - to get a feel for the topography and landmarks, as the Park will be Open for Business as usual. Be early to checkin, blinds assigned by checkin arrival most times. Blinds will usually have fairly short shooting lanes of 80-100 yards long.
Garner SP had staked out shooting lanes marked with staked ribbons & blinds setup in the permanent camping areas - felt real strange to be hunting out of a popup next to the brick wash house and having to be concerned with not hitting one of the RV hookup water and power posts, or picnic tables and steel swing sets with a bullet, and a stringent Rule about not picking up any animal you'd shot until they came to pick you up....and I could see this being possible at Inks in the high use areas closer to the lake area.
Guad River has more "traditional" ground to hunt with the blinds buried up in the "natural" areas between the hiking trails most places, as does Inks as I remember ... this is typical Central Hill Country ground and small sized WTails w/ 80-100 lb Does ... but the guys that hunted the Guad River campgrounds got lots more critters as the deer were used to be hand fed by the campers despite the Regs against it...deer LOVE human food and fruit flavored candy...and there is a 3 Deer Bag Limit this year at Inks so the Bio Guys are probably wanting to harvest as many as possible. Doubt you'll see any hogs or Exotics, but Staff will want you to shoot any & ALL non native critters possible regardless of size or sex. Staff at Inks has a good reputation from what I hear, and I'd be hoping to get back off the Lake area & up around the Caverns.
I was also drawn for a mid January GDA at Inks, and I always try and talk to a Bio guy or Hunt Mgr couple weeks before the Hunt to get any current info I can get from the Staff, and their Special Rules, harvest so far on the previous Hunts & expectations on that particular Hunt.
Right now, just dunno for dead solid and certain if I'll be able to make the Hunt with everything going on at home, but am planning on staying in Burnet right now.
