So who is going to give it a shot this year? If I get picked in the lottery this year I hope to get the same spot as last year.

I'm up for another go. I'm not too picky on a specific spot this year, but I do have a few general areas in mind. I really want a shot at an Axis or hogs this year.

Just a heads up, this is new for 2016-2017:

"Individual WTD quota or bag limit for the 2016 - 2017 season will be 3 deer (no more than 2 legal bucks)"

I'll definitely put in for the draw again. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky again. I'd be happy with any spot. I've always seen something. Sims, an axis would be cool. I've only seen one while driving.

Got my shoulder mount back from last season. I'd be lying if I said it didn't get me excited about this season.

I've seen a group of them once when leaving after dark, but I would love to get one in bow range.

Am I remembering correctly, that the lottery drawing is one Saturday and stand selection is the next? Just curious because I'll be TDY on the day of the drawing.

There were so many delays and issues last year with the site it's hard to say. I think you're supposed to be able to pick a location once you receive notification you were selected. That's how the rule book reads anyway.

Once you receive the notification that you've won, you "should" be able to pick your stand. We all know too well that there are probably going to be issues again this year and things will develop on the fly as in past years.

Oh well, all we can do is hope they got the bugs worked out for this year. Again, good luck on the 27th.

What's the cost to pay for the site if your name gets drawn?

Heads up, they had to revert the stand names back to what they used last year for some reason. Kiosk is down right now also and look at the disclaimer reference to calling in or it'll be treated as trespassing. Just wanted to give a heads up if you are heading out this weekend, would suck to lose privileges before lottery.

I've read through the website for bow hunting this area. For a guy new to the area, how do you know where to try for? It looks like you can get a scouting permit for $5? Is that what people do? and When is the lottery? This will be my first time hunting at camp bullis. Also, i have "veteran" on my Texas DL, would that be enough to get in and hunt?

thanks

Steel,
I started with some map recon on Google Earth and compared it to stand location. Google JBSA Isportsman. That site will provide a bunch of answers to your questions as it's got the regs, lottery draw date and other misc information you might need (I.e. Maps, open areas and the dates they are open). Once you digest the information there you should then have a warm and fuzzy.

OK, just talked to Camp Bullis. If you got an email stating you won, then in fact you were drawn and won. The server crashed due to volume and now were on stand by till we get an email stating you can choose your stand.

When I talked to the guy at Bullis. He told be that if you got a email stating you had won then you did in fact win. I got a follow up email a few minutes ago stating that I was a winner and there were issues with the permit system.

Sorry you all are having the same issues again. Hopefully they will get them all worked out. But this is the reason I stopped hunting Camp Bullis. Actually... it's the last reason in a long string of reasons, but nevertheless... I see they still don't have their act together. Good luck to you all. I hope they get this mess figured out soon, and that every one of you that were chosen has a great season.
All the best,
Glenn
