Well I finally drew a GDE with 12 PP's this year to Matador. Funny thing is I applied for the Chap, Kerr, and Powderhorn as normal. Yesterday at last minute I decided to throw $3.00 at Matador. I have already struck out on MD and Archery there, but went for GDE. If luck would have it I actually pulled that one off. I am pretty stoked about this hunt and have already done lots of research in the past. But if anyone has any pointers that have been or which pastures are better for WT I am all ears. I have never hunted in that area and primarily hunt in East Texas so it will all be a little different to say the least.

I don't post hardly at all, but read this forum daily. Figured this would be a good time to chime in.

We had the tag two years ago, and it was a lot of fun. There are good WT in every compartment, and they really like the thick stuff. The private land right on the east boundary have lots of crops and cotton, you'll see tons of deer in them. They have a bunch of feeders along there, and quite a few of the deer slip out for corn, and come back into the WMA. Most of the better MD are in the ones to the west.

I'll be there for the 9th-13th and ready to just get out and enjoy some new hunting opportunities. It will be a nice change of pace for sure.

Congrats. I got drawn for antlerless 3 years ago and it was a great hunt. Unseasonably warm for December, but saw lots of Mule Deer and a couple of nice mature WT bucks. Saw a lot of deer, except for whitetail does that I was hunting.
