I don't understand why they would wait til the middle of duck season to draw some of those hunts. Kind of makes planning difficult to say the least.

I don't know. I didn't know it was open for daily hunting. I don't live in the area. Just applied for the first time this year.

Great point though. Maybe on the postcard dates it isn't open for general public and only open to the postcard winners.

Have you hunted there before?

I could be wrong... but looking through the options available, I don't think waterfowl hunting is allowed this year at Keechi Creek this year unless you go through the E-postcard option...

For anyone who's interested. This was the response I was given to the following question after the initial response posted above...

Thanks for the response. Any indication why they arenít drawing until these dates? It makes planning difficult when they arenít going to draw a couple of the ones I applied for until right in the middle of duck season.



Good Afternoon,

I believe they wanted to make sure that they were still going to have the hunt due to habitat. Most units have not had enough rain so they are not sure how many hunters or groups these areas can support at this time. That was the reason for the delay. We apologize about any inconvenience.

Thank you,
Wildlife Information

KC has always had postcard type hunts sinc. Tbis is because access is only available through a very restrictive easement that only allows the public to enter the property with TPWD staff.
