Default TPWD came thru, Big Hunts available Friday Oct 20th

One extra day to put you name in the hat for 8 of the 9 Big Hunts.

Good job to them for owning up to their mistake.

They're not owning up to a mistake. Rather, they're giving themselves an opportunity to raise additional revenue. That's all they care about anymore.

Dear Texas Hunter,

Regrettably, an error on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Big Time Texas Hunts web pages provided incorrect information, giving the impression that you could not buy Big Time Texas Hunts entries on October 15, the last day entries could be purchased.

As a result, you and others who planned to buy entries using links on the website may have been unable to do so.

First, let us sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or frustration this may have created for you. An event such as this has never occurred. Rest assured, we will be ever more vigilant to make sure this does not happen again.

Second, in fairness to all of those who tried – but could not purchase their entries – we are able to offer this solution: for a 24-hour period on Friday, October 20, customers will be able to purchase entries for 8 of the 9 hunt packages online.


Entries will be available for BIG TIME TEXAS HUNTS for an additional 24-HOUR WINDOW

When: Friday, October 20 from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Central Time (CT)

Where: Online

LOL odds are already astronomical for the big time texas hunts, probably not getting as many applications once folks have wised up.
