That's what I thought. But wanted to confirm. Hard to see his rt side in second pic. Under grass/mud I guess.

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.

10 hunt periods, 20 hunters per = 200 total hunters

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.
