I like hunting trophy country. How is the hunt experience at Big Bend State Park? Are there quail, deer, and javelina?

Yes to all. Spend your $3 and give it a try. Like BHT said, it's a long shot but at least you'll be building points and it's a cheap hunt if you get drawn.


No matter how high a duck flies a hammer still breaks a window.

I've put in for Big Bend SP mule deer this year, but, if I had to have a true "trophy" mule deer, I'd be looking at something out west. 'Not saying some beautiful mulies aren't grown here, but finding an exceptional specimen on a drawn Texas hunt has got to be some incredible odds. 'Depends on your definition of "trophy," obviously. I drew Sierra Diablo mule deer many years ago. The biologist told me that if I saw a buck with double forks, shoot it. I did. It was the biggest deer taken on that hunt. (Only 3 other hunters, one other buck killed.)


...and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Gen. 1:28
