I received a letter in the mail for the Texas Big Time hunts with the TPWD logo on it.

I almost crapped my pants wondering "could it be? now way"

It turned out to just be an advertisement for this coming draw hunts.

Talk about rubbing salt on the wound.... bang

I got the TPWD Big Time Hunts letter and was so excited and felt the same disappointment. It was too good to be true that I landed that one. Wish I had won that!

I wonder how much money they make off those Big Time Texas hunts since they really don't have a limit to the amount of entires you can have.

"Last year's sweepstakes resulted in 72,989 entries that generated nearly $681,500 revenue, according to Justin Dreibelbis, TPWD director of public hunting."

http://www.lightandchampion.com/sports/article_c618ecbe-9af7-11e6-8fe5-3f6539240b56.html

This article was from 2016 so it probably is referring to the 2015 hunt year.

You can buy as many raffle tickets as you want for these hunts? didn't realize it wasn't limited to 1 entry per person...

No, when you click on it, it will say 1-9999 entries.

That's some good revenue.

So, being new to hunting and all this. If I want to go hunting with three buddies, do we all need to be on the same application? I can't just invite them after the fact, if I ever get a tag?


My pack is usually heavier when I leave. I really need to stop collecting rocks.

All of you have to be on the same application. Which kind of sucks because I have a friend that is new to hunting and chomping at the bit to get out there but I didn't hesitate to get all my picks in so I can't take him if I do get picked. For me it's like a kid 2 days before Xmas with no adults to tell you otherwise. I just tear into it, the only person I sign up with me is my dad. Regardless if he wants to do the hunt or not.

I considered that. Luckily I left a few to apply for.

I drew that hunt a couple of years ago. Harvested one wt spike and one axis doe. Stayed in a cabin rented on location. There were lots of axis and black bucks back then. Unless they changed the way they conduct the hunt, you will be assigned a specific location. Bring a popup blind if you can. I don't think they allow elevated stands. I would call about details including baiting. Good Luck!!!

Congrats on drawing these hunts! Never been to Granger but I have hunted Laguna Atascosa a couple of times. BE PREPARED for chigger and tick warfare!!!! My first trip there resulted in many chigger bites and a week of itching misery. Lots of animals there! Nilgia, pigs, and wtdeer. Watch out for rattlers. I recommend snake boots or chaps! Good luck!

Got a 2nd Round notice on the one PLE I put in for with 4 LP's ...not a good omen for future years worth the way my luck runs. Either I get something quick or it's a long term deal like my GDE @ 15 LP's or my EXO @ 18 LP's. Just Sayin'
