Congrats on a nice one. (I like odd stuff)

I was wondering if anyone knows how many permits they award for each hunt? Also, do they publish the success reports online like they do for lake Whitney hunting?

No publication of success rate. 15 permits per hunt. At one point not long ago, they were getting about 2,000 applications per year. That's just the number of applications, not the number of hunters applying per year.


Yall will have a better chance this year . I'm not putting in for this one this year.

The amount of huntable land decreases every year. Talking to the ranger, he said another 600 acs. has been taken away. Pretty soon, theyíll be no hunting there.

Duck hunting is no longer allowed on the banks and shores, either. Have to be in the water like at Grapevine

If I manage to find a map around here some where, of the way it used to be, I'll post it. Lots of it gone.


But I have some great memories from out there. Some of the best were while duck, quail, and dove hunting.

Hopefully we can get some of it back.

If they can have archery deer hunts in the Northeast on college campuses to help manage the deer population, then you can have deer hunts right next to urban areas without incident as far as Iím concerned. Because at Benbrook itís not the hunters Iíve had issues with, but some of the strange character locals.

Heck, during turkey season there was a group of people LIVING in the woods at longhorn. They had a Jon boat theyíd go back and forth on with a whole tent camp site you could see from the boat ramp.

This sort of thing is exactly why Iím such a big advocate for Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. There is a Texas chapter btw, and itís starting to become more active. Unfortunately the squeaky wheel gets the oil in our society and hunters arenít really the type of people prone to squeaking. Development will eventually crowd out Benbrook, but it hasnít yet. I donít see any reason to keep closing areas and cut off our nose in the present for what the future will eventually bring.

Thanks, Blood Trail. I called today also. Since 600 acres has been removed, what is that actual total acreage open for hunting? Is it not 1,400 acres as I've found on the web?

It has not been 1400 acres for some time. That number has been carried forever! They should update the actual acreage. But I'm afraid if they do, not many will actually want to hunt out there any more.

Yep, they're posted. Someone text me at 817 658 2131 and I'll send you pics of the listing. I'm not sure how to post it up for y'all. Lady in that office said they're about to mail out permits.

Holler if you can't make out the tail end of the listing and I'll text it to you. My little flip phone and the glare made for a bad combo. 817 658-2131

Ghost is in. Hunt #7. Anyone have any ideas of the hunt sections to list? Meaning what hunt distinguishes what dates.

Corps of Engineers has taken that hunt/date listing off their site, but I do know that hunt #8 starts on Dec. 16 and goes through the 31st. So, #7 ends on Dec. 15. I believe it's 15 days long, so likely starts on the 1st. Good luck!
