Definitely .
im not sure if im going to stay in a motel or my truck . i do not know the area and i would be upset to say the least if i were robbed lol.
I know they say that you can NOT stay at the refuge so will see when i get there.
Ill pray we will both be successful...

We stayed in town at a hotel the two times we went. Think there might be an Rv park a little north of the Wma.

sorry meant NWR...

there was no check in when we went. you just have to have a valid permit. there are 3 county rd that cut through it you can park along them anywhere. you just cant block the right of way.

blood yes but never took anything home. I gut shot a doe the first year and never could find her. this was 4-5 years ago. saw a lot but never could close on anything. 2 years ago I had a does dead to rights but passed at the last minute when a nilgai cow step out. miss read distance and shot under the cow. Next morning had same doe come out 15 yards. D-loop busted when i drew back and almost knocked myself out. I always hope to get drawn for this hunt because of a chance at a nilgai. no luck again this year on the archery

We got drawn sametime...put in scouting hours think we usually go up on Wednesday start scouting and setting stands, google maps is your friend. They will be rutting pretty heavy about this time sit all day if you can hopefully we will have some cool weather, grunt rattle and do it some more. We hunted this period before couple years back and had good results. We usually stay in hotel in ramondville right off of 77, good luck we will be in white ford with gold trim on bottom.

We will be there Dec 15-18. Looking forward to it! So am I correct in saying there is no orientation. You can scout a few days before and then you just hunt your dates? Of course with your permit on hand.

Still wandering myself if there is going to be some sort of orientation . Yanta 61 Now that is one heck of a hunt . I am guessing the best way to hunt down there is to make you own little brush blind and scout the sendaros??

we always just try and tuck in somewhere... you can take tripods, bob ups, or maybe even some ladder stands. We just try and find where a bunch of trails cross and setup close to them. don't think there are may sendaros, if any.. I want to say there are 30 hunter every hunt but not sure if that's right, could be 60..

you can go to google earth and then click on street view and go down cr 10 and see what the terrane looks like down there.

According to the info page in the email, I think everyone on the property needs to be permitted.

I've read almost all past threads on this hunt and most suggest taking a short tripod. I will be taking one.

OK, yesterday saw 2 does in the morning, and a doe and fawn in the afternoon. Great hunt would do it again. Driving back today. Lots of fog. Saw the state game warden 3 times and the Federal game warden once.
Bring either camouflage burlap or ghost blind, I brought a tripod and sat it 4 hunts. Even the pigs looked up at me. 4 Nylghai were killed that I know of all from the ground. A good archery chair is a must. Do bring your Thermocel !. Hunt fresh piles of dung for Nylghai. They are antelope and have great eye site. Please check Internet for shot placement they are thick skin like boar hogs, and their vitals are different. Try to hunt where the dung is fresh and other animals trails are close, so you have many choices. Good luck. And I hope this helps all.
