Hello to all the hunters and hopefuls. We are just a few weeks away from the opening day of the lottery. Let the mumblings, rumblings, and grumblings begin.

Hey, I've never hunted in that part of the state. Sure would like to give it a try. BTW, LSBA banquet is being held in Grapevine this year on June 24. We would be glad to have y'all stop by for some good eats and maybe even win you a hunt. Check out the LSBA website for more info.

I have been lurking in the background here for about a year now. Went and applied for the draw about an hour ago. Tags issued are at the following numbers:

Waterfowl - 210
General hunting - 660
Deer draw - 470

Good luck to everyone this year, be safe.

The office has no idea how many of the permits are left for any of them or how many they have given out. They had 3 different guys handing out permits and they were all pulling from their own stack of permits. So they're handing out permits that aren't in order. I was like 74 on waterfowl and ultralite was probably 45 minutes behind me and was 311. There's no telling what is left.

I'm gonna have to pass on the vine this year so someone else can go in my stead. We are gonna focus solely on the lease this year! Gonna tune it up. There's no animals out there anyway except a squirrel and a rabbit I saw last year.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to check it out. Not that I need anymore. Think I had something like 12 dozen not long ago. Plus all my full body goose and sleeper goose shells, nother thirty or forty something. .


The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

Just got back from going out there. Got my lottery number (133) and general permit (618). Waterfowl permits gone. Guy at the COE said that there was a long line the first day for waterfowl permits.

Dang it was hot. I was able to come quite a bit of ground. Found 2 old tree stands with spider webs all over them. Signs here and there of animals. Really glad I went out today!
