What does pending 2nd draw mean? I made it into a group and if the first group has people that can't go or don't pay in time, they draw from the 2nd group?

I got pending 2nd draw on Mineral Wells and Choke Canyon.

Everyone gets pending 2nd draw if you don't draw. If any of the people selected don't buy the tag or can't go, then they redraw from the 2nd draw pool. It is pretty much SOL. There is still a chance......just not a good one.

Gotchya. Man for a second I was pumped thinking I atleast had a decent chance as the 2nd group...but sounds like that means everyone is in the 2nd group. Oh well. Sometimes all you need is a chip and a chair.

Same here! Anyone know If listed as app received, does that mean they have not done the draw yet?

Good luck!!!
I drew the first hunt last year. Didnít shoot anything but did have one legal buck at 21 yards and passed. I was going thru a card on one of my cameras and had a monster on it. Decided to hold off cause I was going to hunt that set the next morning. Unfortunately he never showed. Did see another good buck later that morning but was just out of bow range.

Congratulations
I love hunting that place
The best advice is google earth look for trails and bring a pop up blind and extra cameras. Also if they allow to feed corn bring some bags
Don't forget loppers to brush in blind and try and hunt as long as you can.
If you are driving in your compartment after an evening hunt and see a group of deer, try and set up there the following evening.

On my hunt I kept seeing deer in a certain area in the evening and I looked it up on Google earth and found where some trails came together and threw a camera up and corned it. I was able to take this buck the following evening

I want to say north jay. The boundary on my west was the HF that split the WMA and the boundary to the north was the HF perimeter. Had a pretty good water hole on the northwest part of this compartment. Never saw a doe in this compartment other than one that showed up on one camera. Had 2 very good shooters on camera (daytime too) and seen another real good one come out and crossed the road in front of me mid afternoon.

2007. an October hunt. Hot as all get out. They had over 30" of rain that year. Grass in senderos over my truck hood.

It burned the next spring. Bad fire.

Have no idea on how many points I had at the time.

I called Chap this morning to ask bout the quail hunts and if they knew the drawing order.

Lady said that the quail hunt is on for walk ins and she said to call about a week before the hunt to find out the order. She said they should have the list from Austin by then. Yeah, I know, I am impatient.
