I just got drawn for both LAWR and Tiente. I've never been to Tiente before. How is it out there?

Brush is the same as LANWR. Need to get up off the ground a little. Tripod will work best

So, I have read mixed answers to my question. I am trying to clarify with people who know for sure/have been before or called.

Do we use our own deer tags, or are additional tags provided?

You will use your own hunting license tags. There will not be permit tags provided. As reference, I tagged 2 bucks last year on LANWR.

Thanks for clearing it up. I opened the attachment after paying fee, and saw that printed. But, then someone had told me they thought you got tags during draw if it was for deer.

My buddy put three of us in and we drew the first archery/nilgai at LA. We hunt together all over the west so we don't mind a challenging hunt. But after reading some of the threads on this hunt I am having second thoughts. Is it worth 5 days of a guy's season? Success rates don't scare us, we do it for the adventure and fellowship more than the kill. But I don't want to get into a circus of a pumpkin patch. Hopefully I am wrong! I would love to hear form some LA vets. Thanks in advance.
Go get em!

110% go for it. I got my first archery kill out there last year and it was the most rewarding hunts I've had. It kicked my butt, but looking back at it now is pretty cool. I got drawn for the first whitetail archery hunt out there this season and I can't wait to go back. Just make sure you are somewhat in shape because it is a tough, but rewarding hunt.

Thanks, and congrats on your first kill! We plan to be there for the first archery hunt as well. Look forward to meeting everyone. Looks like a lot of TBHers will be there. Did you feel crowded, did other hunters interfere with your hunt?

I noticed that most guys won't hunt more than a couple hundred yards away from their trucks. My spot was about 7 miles in and I only saw 1 other person out that far. Take advantage of the scouting day we get and really put in some work. I biked/walked over 20 miles last year just exploring and still only saw a fraction of the refuge.

Kmock,

By no means am I a vet at LANWR, those guys are of a special breed of public land hunters. What I can tell you is my experience, If you have the time to research, which it sounds like you've done in regards to the overalls in success and extreme difficulty, KEEP researching and plan on this;

LANWR is not for most hunters, though extremely difficult it is extremely rewarding. Any kill is remarkable, doe, spike, small buck, hog, especially nilgai and a B&C deer, statistics are accurate. Less than 5% sucess rate, less than 1% on a good buck or Nilgai with a bow. Being pressured by other hunters is up to you and your planning and determination.

I enjoyed the fellowship, camaraderie, and especially the adventure of new unknown territory. Every step is new tracks. That is the best part.

Being in shape is best, but dont doubt a heavier older man, I witnessed an older man over 300lbs consistently make long distance hikes/bikes in, I was in awe at his ability! Sure makes a young man feel a certain way!

This type of hunt tested my skills, pushed my limits and opened my eyes as to how hardcore of a bow hunter I'm capable of becoming. We all continue to learn in the field and from each other. The rules make it difficult, even ignorant as far as restraints, some are completely illogical.

Is it worth 5 days of a guys season? Depends on what you're used to. I left last year as excited as I've ever been to go back and do it all over again. The excitement has never left either. I'm lucky as hell to be going again this year! I lost my voice from whooping and hollering.

This hunt requires extreme preparation for newbs. LANWR separates the men from the boys, hunting a WMA doesnt hold a candle to this.

Bring your best!

I agree if you want to avoid the crowds work harder than them. I put in countless miles last year for the Nilgai Hunt. Most of the other hunters I seen were with in a mile from their trucks. I saw little rd of animals and missed my chance at the one shot I took. I had plenty of close calls. I think I came to full draw three times. It was worth every drop of sweat. I'm looking forward to this year and haven't stopped thinking about last years hunt until I drew for archery deer this year.

I drew the first archery deer hunt this year 11/17-11/21. I have never been to Atascosa NWR, but have hunted Aransas. I never saw a deer at Aransas,but did kill a pig. The mosquitoes were like nothing I had ever seen before.......clouds of them hanging around you at all times, and the constant sound of them all around you.
We used our Thermacells, which helped with the mosquitoes, but probably contributed to not seeing deer.
Are the mosquitoes as bad at Atascosa? My buddy hunted there last year and said it was an awesome hunt. They got covered up with ticks though.
I can live with with mosquitoes and ticks for a hunt like that, but was just wondering if I could expect the same volume of mosquitoes as we had in Aransas.

I hunted LAWR the weekend after Thanksgiving last year and they weren't bad at all. I had my Thermacell with me just in case but I never used it. It was probably around 60 or 70 degrees with some wind so maybe that helped. I did however find a lot of ticks. Even though I was wearing pants and long sleeves, they still managed to find a way to get to my skin. Make sure to check for them often and check for them everywhere on your body. I also got bit by chiggers so be careful with those dudes and don't scratch them. I've still got the scars on my chest from last year.

Y'all ever try Permethrin (pure 100%, not deet) on your boots and pants?

I've been using it for the past couple years and haven't found any ticks on me since...though not sure how bad those areas are for ticks to begin with.

We've been light on rain down here, but it could change before the hunts. I'm only about 15-20 minutes from LAWR.
All you new hunters coming down should be using permethrin if you want to avoid the ticks and chiggers.

I used it religiously last year and had several ticks on me. I wore a base layer and I could feel when there were trying to bite/pinch thru it on my skin. I even had a tick in my under arm when I got home a day later. Woke me up when it stared crawling. That stuff works but you need to apply it several times a day down there. Ticks were very bad

Anybody got a bead on actual huntable acres for 250 archers? Does a person draw for a specific unit and stays in that unit or area all huntable units open to a LA permit?

I read the brochure briefly. I dont know that either of my questions were answered in it.

That or maybe I just wanted to be abused by someone who didnt answer my question.

You can text me Briar Friar if you want. I will politely answer your questions. I say put in for it. I got drawn last year for Nilgai and this year for deer. It's like a lot of public land. If you are willing to go past the dreaded one mile mark you will see animals. It seems 1 mile is the comfort limit for a lot of hunters.

I hope it's someone that will enjoy it! 90% of the time I would tell my boss I already had submitted pto and send someone else but this was a call from the VP of our company so it's a meeting I have to take.

At least I get to keep my points

My BIL and I got to hunt last year and had encounters with more hunters than animals the first day. I knew better but the immense fresh sign in the area overrode my better judgement. Not to mention the fact that we had seen 20 something nilgai early on the morning of the scouting day in this area. I was about 1.5mi. in and as I was exiting my blind stepped around the bit of brush I was in and immediately spotted 4 other hunters all within 300yds of me. Needless to say the next day we formed a new plan and biked 6mi. in and at 11am that day my BIL connected with his first deer, ever. A small 6pt at 12yds. If we would have stayed put we would have had a chance at a doe as well. It was definitely the most rewarding hunt ive ever been on. Getting that deer out was painful to say the least as I'm not really in that good of shape.

We learned a lot and I will be going back this year with a good buddy for the first archery hunt this year as well.

Just fyi for the first timers, find the best tick repellant you can and use it liberally! I was able to avoid getting many on my skin but I freaked a little the first time realized I was looking at hundreds of seed ticks on my pant legs. I am deliberately wearing solid color pants again for this reason.


Hoping to score this year!! Good luck to everyone!!

Thanks man! I really didn't have very high expectations of getting drawn on second draw, especially on a group app.

A buddy and I also got drawn on the second draw for the Nov. 17 hunt. We are excited, but this is a new type of hunting for both of us. Lots of good info on the green screen as always.
