I received a letter in the mail for the Texas Big Time hunts with the TPWD logo on it.

I almost crapped my pants wondering "could it be? now way"

It turned out to just be an advertisement for this coming draw hunts.

Talk about rubbing salt on the wound.... bang

I got the TPWD Big Time Hunts letter and was so excited and felt the same disappointment. It was too good to be true that I landed that one. Wish I had won that!

I wonder how much money they make off those Big Time Texas hunts since they really don't have a limit to the amount of entires you can have.

"Last year's sweepstakes resulted in 72,989 entries that generated nearly $681,500 revenue, according to Justin Dreibelbis, TPWD director of public hunting."

http://www.lightandchampion.com/sports/article_c618ecbe-9af7-11e6-8fe5-3f6539240b56.html

This article was from 2016 so it probably is referring to the 2015 hunt year.

You can buy as many raffle tickets as you want for these hunts? didn't realize it wasn't limited to 1 entry per person...

No, when you click on it, it will say 1-9999 entries.

That's some good revenue.

So, being new to hunting and all this. If I want to go hunting with three buddies, do we all need to be on the same application? I can't just invite them after the fact, if I ever get a tag?

All of you have to be on the same application. Which kind of sucks because I have a friend that is new to hunting and chomping at the bit to get out there but I didn't hesitate to get all my picks in so I can't take him if I do get picked. For me it's like a kid 2 days before Xmas with no adults to tell you otherwise. I just tear into it, the only person I sign up with me is my dad. Regardless if he wants to do the hunt or not.
