Prod if you go to the area I am in, and go 1.4 miles around you will be within 300yds of the exact spot I was in. I have multiple friends heading down this next week so I am not gonna give up much info. Besides the place is overrun with game. I have seen two bulls and five cows since I got here wed. last bull was standing in area two in the lil strip of brush all the way down in the corner by one as far as the refuge goes, he was trying to hide at about 1pm today.

I google earthed some spots, find a dung pile that is close to trail you can't miss their trails. set up there as far back in the shadows as you can get and don't move. I have never seen animals as skittish as them. draw early and hold it, I drew when she was over 90yds out and just waited for her to come stand by the yucca that I knew was 27yards. I still hunted yesterday in the wind and saw a ton of nice deer and all manner of hogs, but I leave the motel at 4:45 and I don't get back until around 7 or 8. Pack a lunch and spend the day in their. that is about the only advice I can give. first time here.
They are tough as heck man. Few years back there was a cow running around with a couple of arrows sticking out her.

I shot a cow that ended being pregnant at our lease one year. Got a great double lung shot with a 30-06 and she still managed to make a 100 yard dash into the brush.

I wouldn't give any details on areas if I were you. It usually comes back and bites you in the butt.... It must not be the one I saw today. Didn't see left side but right side had a hole high in the shoulder. With dried blood below. She wasn't even limping.

You are not assigned units. You can figure out the draw success ratio by checking out the TPWD website hunt system and look at last years numbers. It shows applicants and permits available. Just divide it

They usually do.

Also, for those hunting by themselves, they have three brand new game carts you can check out if you need help. I'm sure you have ride back to hunter check station to get one.

I'm setting up my tripod Thursday morning and hunting Friday, but will report on the LA archery deer thread.

That would be appreciated. We are down for the 2-6 and will do the same - set up Thursday and scout a little more as well. We scouted a total of 26 miles across 5 different sections a couple of weekends ago, but still wanted to check a couple more spots out. We have two or three really solid spots based on signs but can't have enough because a couple will be heavily dependent on the wind that day

Be prepared for a lot of idiots that think they are gonna spot and stalk, and dont have a clue how to hunt.. Doubt most of them could sneak within bow range of an armidillo.

Did it seem pretty crowded? I am a little concerned with 250 permits that I am going to continuously be bumping into people out there. Especially if people are not allowed to mark spots. Thoughts?

My group will be down on the 30th.
I'm also curious how crowded it felt, I guess we will have to wait and hear from the first archery deer hunters on that for a better understanding.

Does anyone know if the LA headquarters will give answer to how many permits were purchased for each respective hunts? 100+, 150+, 200+?

If you stay close to the roads, you're almost guaranteed to have people up on you. When I first started hunting out there, I had all kinds of people walking around during the best hunting hours. I had a tripod set up on a worn down trail and had a guy come walking down the trail crouching like if he thought he was actually tracking an animal.

Also, you don't want to mark where your spot is because will hunt your stands. It's happened in the past.

Your biggest enemy are the seed ticks out there. I've never had chiggers out there but the ticks can be horrendous.

I thought one year my legs were dirty so I didn't pay any attention to the brownish color. By the time I knew it, hundreds had crawled all over my body and I spent the next day with a fever and chills. Permethrin is a must have.

Thanks for the info...I have always gone far back in, my concern is that with it being crowded I would risk walking thru someone heading back out that has decided to stay close to the road. Because I **** sure ain't walking 1 mile through unfamiliar woods after dark.

I asked that exact question a few weeks back when I called, it was before the second draw though. I was told 250 were available and that her "best guess" would be that 220-230 will show up with a lot people getting there late on Friday night because of work and the numbers dwindling significantly Sunday mid day due to people returning to work on Monday. Which is all fine by me. I am staying until they kick me out...

I don't blame you. I was born and raised hunting in south texas and I still don't like walking through the brush out there in the dark. lol

I checked with the hunter station today. They have no way how many no shows since no one is required to check in or out.

Just curious, how would they know that everyone hunting actually drew the tag? If they stop you I'm sure that is a quick way to find out, but other than that its a free for all?

I believe we have to have a document with our name and permit number written on it displayed on the dash of our vehicle. I printed mine out today.

Are they the regular type of game carts, that is rated for a couple hundred pounds. I will be by myself on the Dec 30th - Jan 1st rifle hunt. Being by myself is my only real concern I have about the hunt. I don't know what I will do if I put a Nilgai on the ground. I'm thinking the easiest way would be to gut and quarter on the ground to be able to haul out

Yes. I saw the regular carts there. If you get a big nilgai by yourself, call the refuge office and if they have someone available they come out and help. I've seen it done before.

There's a way to know how many individuals drawn actually paid the $130 per person for the permit.

The number of permits paid for won't change.

As far as no shows, that's always unknown.

I'm thinking the easiest way would be to gut and quarter on the ground to be able to haul out


I'll be hunting by myself this Friday and this is what I got from Amazon...

https://www.amazon.com/Goplus-Hauler-Utility-Hunting-Accessories/dp/B01HI69CB6/ref=zg_bs_3413561_5/154-0063810-0782743?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=M66383HNVZ1MDG K8A6RE

It's rated 500lbs so I'm thinking skin, quarter, and cart out. I figured nilgai can be had up to 700-800lbs, so bone out the quarters. Just make sure to keep the hide, head (bull) and/or reproductive organs so rangers can identify sex.

Plus, I'll be using the cart to haul in/out my pop blind, chair, bow and stuff.

Well, that's the plan will see what happens when I get there lol. Feel free to provide feedback and/or ideas, thanks!

Bike and cart are essential to get you away from the crowds but not a guarantee. We found that each day the game movement got less each day, so try to get it done early. Permithren is a must on your clothes and spray your ankles, wrists, and any other expos d area with deer. The seed ticks are so small they are like grains of sand, have to spot them with your bongos reversed!Name:  IMG_2855.jpg

Here is a western trick for those of you who are solo. Gutless method, if you don't have a game bag i would stick with the hair on:

FYI they want the whole hide and head brought to the check station. Hide dosnt need to touch cart/ truck. That's why they require the tarp
