Appreciate the heads up. Just a couple of new hunts. Maybe this will be my lucky year that I draw the Bighirn.

The postcard hunts require a APH for the 2018 and 2019 season.

Just put in for 12 different hunts. 8+ loyalty points in all categories I put in for except GDA and GDM. While it will be nice to get drawn, I fully expect more loyalty points again this year.

The frustrating part with that is that you have no idea what it truly takes to get drawn from a loyalty point perspective - it's just a guess. What makes it frustrating is that TPWD has this information, but is either not keeping track of it or is not supplying it for other reasons. I inquired about this via email and was just told the following:

"I do apologize, we do not have reports that group the categories by odds for selection with loyalty points. We only have the statistics that are offered online. Those statistics should be undated in July when our 2018- 2019 drawn hunts system goes live."

If you look at other states, like Wyoming (Wyoming Draw Odds example), they provide these statistics. It makes it easier to make informed decisions when applying for hunts, and even more importantly, helps level set expectations for those applying.

The data wouldn't really be all that helpful because the Texas system is based on bonus points, rather than preference points like Wyoming. In Wyoming, the majority of the tags go to the people with the highest amount of points. If there are 10 tags, they will go to the 10 people with the most points. (there are a few set aside for a random drawing, but that isn't really relevant here).

In Texas, we use bonus points, which just means they put your name in the hat more time based on how many points you have. More points does increase your odds of being drawn, but only barely. If there are 2,000 applications for a tag, it doesn't really matter, statistically, if you have no points or 5 points. Even if you have say 15 points, the odds are still that you won't get drawn. Most likely, it will be someone with low points simply because most applicants have low numbers of points.

Interesting - I didn't realize the TX bonus points sort of equate to getting more tickets in the lottery jar with your name on them - not necessarily a higher preference/odd.. I think it used to be this way? Either way, thanks for clearing that up for me.

I drew antelope with 16 points with my nephew who had zero. So the group had 8 points. You canít win if you donít apply.

59 hunts entered so far and a few more to go. Hopefully I get 1 hunt selection at the least.

I really need to submit my entries. Last year was my first ever applying for any drawn hunts and I put in for 7 with the hope of getting drawn for just one. Was very lucky to be drawn for Laguna Atascosa and Balcones Canyonlands NWR hunts, but could only afford to do one. Decided on the Laguna with hopes of getting a Nilgai. Despite my ineptitude and a series of blunders and mistakes, I was fortunate to come home with a handsome young bull. That reminds me...need to pull some shanks out of the freezer to make some Osso Bucco later this week! I sure learned a lot that trip.

That's awesome that you landed that trip and came out successful. I was very proud of my Nilgai and still am today but you got yours on public land which makes it even better IMO. More applications doesn't necessarily mean you will win more. I put in around 50 draw hunts in a year and got picked for only 1 small hunt out of 3 years combined. So last year I got that 1 pick and the 2 previous years I got nothing.
