Default My buddy won

I got a call yesterday from my buddy. He had just gotten off the phone with TP&W. They told him he had won the Texas Big Game Premium Buck Hunt. I let it slide for a few hours so as to give him no satisfaction pulling my leg. As it turns out, he did win. It was perfect timing too. His boss had given him a bonus to go on a hunting trip but he had a health issue that he had to use the money on. We have been hunting public land for 30 years so this will be a big change.

Hunt is for 2. 3-5 days LaSalle county. We each get 1 (trophy) buck. Lodging, food, guides and transportation around ranch are included. That is my understanding.

your understanding is that is how the hunt is supposed to be or that you're his no.2?

I got to go to the Briscoe Ranch as my dadís # 2 in 2002. Awesome trip. Saw SO many great bucks and we both killed studs.

Good luck to the OP and his friend. Enjoy it.

I just got excited cause I ignored a 512 number yesterday evening and thought maybe I missed my phone call.. Just went and looked it up and it was a solicitor, not TP&W

Its a guided hunt, may be on state owned land but its far from any other public hunt, actually never heard of it not being 100% success rate...
