My daughter got drawn for either sex in November at Powderhorn. She is allowed 3 whitetail, an Axis, and a Sambar. Anybody hunted there before and have any tips for us? Thanks

I think this is the first year they have had hunts there. Good Luck to your daughter.

Yup, first year they have opened it. I’m jealous... I know 10-12 years ago there was some impressive white tails on the ranch. Have seen Sambar from the road and axis in town. Should be a fun hunt.

My son and I were there last year through TYHP. There are plenty of whitetail! I saw a few Axis but they were skittish. The Sambar arent very smart and stick close to the salt water. Whitetail were spread out everywhere. Do you have an assigned comparntment or can you pick where you want to hunt. I saved a few spots in Huntstand when we were there, they told us they would open it up to draw hunts this year. PM if you have anything specific.

Thanks for the info! Not sure if it is assigned compartment or if they get to pick. Hopefully the hunt coordinator will email me soon with more details.

Let me know the coordinators name. Two of the guys that ran the place were with us for the TYHP hunt. Both were stand up guys. When you get some more info let me know and I would be glad to show you some things on a map. I also put in again through TYHP for Powderhorn with my youngest son. It isnt until December tho.

Congratulations brother! That was the one hunt I was dreaming about. Just to see a Sambar free range would've been worth the permit. Best of luck man!

They need to do an archery exotic hunt there next year, I'm tired of Garner being the only place listed for that category year after year. They need to bring back Devils River also as a hunt in the category.

I wouldn't call them free range. The entire place is high fenced. Granted it is 17,000 acres but it is high fenced on 3 sides.


An archery exotic hunt would be awesome there. Last year we were sitting in a pop up and had a huge trophy Sambar with in 10 yards of the blind. Never even looked at us. He was huge! I don't remember who was breathing louder the Sambar or my son sitting next to me.
