Yep, and what happen to Devil's River. I drew that hunt a few years ago and had a blast. Missed a Auodad at 20 yds., then shot somekind of cross sheep at 32.
I hate they did away with devils river archery, that is a really cool place. I'm sure they are just keeping the archery exotic carrot there with Garners 8 permits going to get the cash from us with built up points because they know we are gonna continue applying. I'm somewhere in the teens on points on that category now.
If you've noticed most all hunt categories, locations, amount of actual hunt blocks and the amount of hunters for each block have shrunk dramatically over the years. GSP is no good because they developed a well deserved reputation for not caring about the hunt because the park makes too much money other ways that the hunt is considered a mandantory negative for staff. I know they have tried to reverse this the past few hunts but it doesn't help when government hunters are brought in to kill the exotics enmass...TPWD really put the screws to the native texan public Hunter when they went to the online system and offering limited hunting opportunities.
Its dramatically down from what it used to be, especially the archery category, I have the old books and can prove it.
