Default Laguna atascosa Emergency hunt-April

I wanted to start a new post to see how many of us end up with permits. The exhaustion of the hunt has worn off so I'm in by proxy, my buddy will turn in an app for us.
Let's do this! Good luck to those trying.

There's no point in camping. It's not first come first serve anymore. As long as you get your app in, you're in the drawing.

First 80 people get a permit. If I’m number 81, I’ll turn around and drive back. Worth a shot. Good luck to all

Theoretically, could one person bring 80 people’s applications and submit them?

I was 314. Put in a couple of proxies for fellow tbhers. Steady line of trucks going in and out. Chances gonna be under 5% I'm reckoning. Lady said they will call the lucky ones if chosen. Good luck all.

No luck for me either. Have to say I was very impressed by how well prepared the refuge staff was to handle a large number of people. Everything ran really smoothly.

I'm sure you'd like to hunt where I do lol! I saw your selfie post of "Death Valley", which wasn't where I was! Theres only 1 person that hunts there that knows, or you got intel leaked from inside, or you found my arrow which I doubt. Still calling BS!

Nah Death Valley was my first stop about 1.5 in. I just had a good feeling about that spot. I would of connected on the first day if I wouldn't of gotten greedy. I stopped at half draw and looked back to see if it was a bull behind me and the cow booked it. Seriously though man, I wouldn't bs about knowing something like that. I've got "the big one got away every wknd" friends though.
