When you apply for a Lottery Hunt you can scroll down and see by category how many PP/LP's you have from App's that did not generate being Drawn for a Permit. I've been applying for a while, and discovered at one point that when I did not buy at least ONE $3 App per year, ALL of my previously acquired PP/LP's were scrubbed and you had to start the accumulaton process over again.
As of this years App's & pre the 2019 Hunting Season's Drawing process, I only have 2 Categories I have not been drawn in for more than 3-5 years , and now have 20 LP's in EXO & 17 LP's in GDE. Obviously I am not frivolous with those App's and only apply for places I really am willing to burn those LP's for.
Only have 8 App's submitted so far for this year, but will study our schedules at home, with 2 antique shop locations to stay on top of, to see if there is time available & any serious interest in going anywhere else in this years outside of the App's submitted this year in EXO, GDA, GDE & GDM.
My first Drawn Hunt ever was a GDA at the old Walter Buck WMA that is adjacent to the east side of South Llano River SP in umm? had to be in the late/late '90's. Previous to that whenever i was not on a lease was the only time I submiitted Lottery Hunt App's. I had not been doing App's regularly until sometime after we moved back home to Dallas in '75 and lost all the 25 years worth of those 1975 - 1999 accrued PP's by NOT applying EVERY YEAR. Ron
It literally was a black lab that did it. I read about it back when it happened. Iím not sure why Yahoo is just now covering it. I feel bad for the guy, but somebody shouldíve not put a loaded gun down like that.
I donít know why others are inserting themself in this post. Like it says, hunt with owner, pay owner. Thatís the price unless you are a long established client and we work out an agreement. The post clearly says we can work a discount if youíre shooting mote than one animal. PM with your # and Iíll call you.
Here's a true story. In the late 70's I sold a 270 to the dad of a friend. It was scoped and sighted in. The man barely glanced at the gun when he bought it from me. Deer season was coming up and the man decided to go out to the range next to a local lake and see how it shot.
The man reached in the safe and grabbed my friend's (his son's) 30-06 by mistake. He started shooting at a target. He had a friend with him at the range. He shot a few times and not a round was on paper. He was grumbling to his friend that I had cheated him. He shot a couple of times again and his friend standing there told him he was seeing the rounds land in the lake way way out past the backstop. Luckily nobody fishing out there!
The man went home and told his son I had screwed him. His son said, "Dad, that's my 30-06."
And on top of that, they determined that the barrel of the 30-06 wasn't damaged. At least that was the last I heard.
