My daughter and I were lucky enough to get a spot on another Texas Youth Hunting Program hunt - http://tyhp.alamark.com/ this one was located 16 miles south of Freer, TX – a good 6 hour drive from Arlington. There were a total of 6 youths picked for this hunt.
We arrived on site around 2pm and after a quick orientation everyone headed out to their blinds. I can’t remember the order of all the harvests over the weekend but all 6 kids ended up with a doe by Saturday night. Several (including my daughter pictured below) also got javelinas. The javelina pictured had some nice tusks; we will be shoulder mounting her trophy. We were allowed to varmint hunt as well and although several bobcats and coyotes were spotted none were harvested. I did use my IPhone and a distress call to call a yote out of the brush but it was too far for a shot – still cool though, I’ve never used a call before and was surprised how quickly the yote came running out – it was actually just a video I found on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEaCIedLFuc I later found an app and will be using that next time.
Many thanks to the THYP, the Huntmasters and Guides, the Landowners and all those that make these opportunities available!
Here’s the pics:

That's my guess. Saw that at Freer Deer Camp and had to get a pic. Close relative of the elusive Jackalope.
