I have to be honest that I have my fingers crossed on everyone of these upcoming draws. I went from winning 1 or 2 hunts a season to strike outs the last 2 years. I'd really like to get out to one of these new places that I have never seen.

Yes, changing the application process and allowing people to apply for every hunt in a category certainly decreased the odds of drawing. Some only 25% or so, but in some cases the number of applications for really desirable trophy hunts doubled or even quadrupled! That said, I still hope to be lucky every year, and continue to put in my chances and cross my fingers. Good luck to everyone and hope your dreams come true next week.

Ive got 10 trips to get lucky on coming up next week. I have been prepping all summer getting prepared for any hunt I might get picked on. I am ready . I think!!??


I just learned about these hunts a year or 2 ago so this was really my second season to apply. And last year I only signed up for 4 or 5 hunts total.

Couple of hunts I have coming up that would be dream hunts for me and that is javalina at black gap or the Chap. I want to go to Black gap just because I love the area and I could just sit in some canyon all day glassing and be happy. hammering a peccary with my 68 would be a bonus but I could care less if I score or not truthfully!

The chap would be awesome because I could care less about javalina and I would be pig hunting for sure. Coyotes pigs and peccaries. they will all die and it will give me the chance to scout for future hopeful deer drawings.

the others look mostly like meat hunts but it will be a good experience.

I am getting excited for sure!

Good luck. To be honest, I have never seen as many javelina as there are on the Chap. Groups of 5-20 every time I have been there. Just like vacuum cleaners for any corn or bait you put out! They scared the crap out of my grandson with all their squealing and teeth popping, but he settled down and got a nice one.

They are mean little suckers! Sounds like they need to get rid of a lot of them.

Can youths apply for these hunts or do they have to apply in the youth section only? Trying to keep my kids in my group if we were lucky enough to get drawn

When you browse the hunts, in the lower left corner of the hunt info it will have age requirements. The only ones I remember that are adult only are the guided hunts that only have one tag, and it specifically says that. Because youth 8-16 have to be supervised, adults cant go along on that hunt.

Damn status is still: Application Received, which is still better than saying pending 2nd draw.

They are taking their time to make sure all the friends that paid them under the table get their hunts first.

Numbers of permits were way down this year. Starting to get tougher and tougher.

I was just looking and I thought it has been the last 2 years that I struck out but no, it has been 3 years. This will be year 4 if I don't get picked for a single hunt.

I am showing pending 2nd draw on Chaparral Archery and Government Canyon Archery. This is my first year to apply so I don't even have any loyalty points. So my odds are already pretty darn low.
