I just notified I was chosen for a Private Land hunt at Travis County Ranch. Anybody ever been on this hunt? Any info would be appreciated.

See if you can get into the TPW archives by category & location to see success %'s and other interesting details for those of us who like to delve into the minutia. Used to be on a toolbar on the left hand side of the Permit Page. Haven't looked at it in a while though.

I was just checking into applying for some drawn hunts and was looking at what WileyCoyote is talking about.. I found the link

https://www2.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/h....phtml?OCat=PLE

Looks like Travis County gave out six permits last year with a 50% success rate.. good luck

I can't find the archives. All I've found is the link tbannister put up. I know last year it was raining. I was wanting to know if the ranch had a place to stay, success rate, etc. I've got my permit. Just waiting to hear from the ranch with details. I guess we will see what this year brings.

Lot of small does, bucks. pace is just the road from us here outside dripping springs Texas. Alot of mega dollar homes around here, I surprised they are holding this hunt again this year. Did see a areial helicopter couple months ago doing a survey on the place. Not sure when the hunt will happen but there is hunting pressure in surrounding ranches.

Place is across the road from Hamilton Pool park.......

good luck.....

Thanks a lot Hogflyer. I still haven't heard anything from the ranch so I didn't have any idea where it was. Is is high fence or low? Do they have any place to stay? Do you know the name of the ranch? Again thanks for the info.
