Got picked for Archery Deer at Chaparral WMA.. wondering if I can use my crossbow.... ? never hunted there before. Anyone know how to hunt down there? maybe water, trails that cross fences or such? Congrats erok11! I was successful on a Black Gap Mule deer archery hunt in 2007.

I drew an archery tag for Gus Engeling today. Later than years past, I think - Dec 7-11. I've seen some monsters in pictures from there but hear it's hard hunting. Anyone else planning to go this year?

What area will you be hunting, MB? I wonder if I'll get to meet any THF'ers out at Elephant Mountain next year.

The javelina hunt was last year at San Angelo State Park.
I have drawn antlerless/spike private lands in Concho County this year.

Gus Engeling is one of my favorites. It can be a hard hunt for some because there is no baiting, the deer are very spooky from being heavily hunted, and it's real thick. For a bowhunter that knows how to hunt without just staring at a pile of corn, it's not so bad. There are lots of straight, mature oaks that are great for climbing stands, so it shouldn't be a problem finding a good spot. Because it's so thick, your shots are going to be close, not a big deal for an archery hunt.
Most of the deer shot there are taken by the same hunters who have hunted the WMA many times before and have figured the place out. I have been fortunant enough to be able to take some meat home every time I've hunted there. Even if you don't score on a deer, there are quite a few hogs too.
The staff at the WMA are a great group of guys too. You are going to have a fun hunt, no matter the outcome!

Good luck!

I've hunted it 3 times all gun hunts, very few deer get brought into the check station, its a super tuff for deer out there the last couple years, chances of taking a hog are a little better.

I thought baiting at Engeling is allowed? Though with no feeders anywhere I expect them to just stare at corn if it was spread out around my stand.

I stand corrected. When I last hunted there, a couple of years ago, there was no baiting. Looking at the hunt brochure though, it says they DO allow it now. Corn away!

Good luck! Post a lot of pics!
