Default Drawing Today

Is anyone else eager to see more of the hunts they applied for switch over to pending second draw?

Not sure if they'll draw today or not. Seems like they did draw on Labor Day last year though. Could be wrong.

I've got my 2 kids entered in 3 hunts each today with not terrible odds of getting drawn so hopefully one of them at least gets lucky.

Got drawn for Lower Rio Grande Valley Archery(Deer, Nilgai, hogs). I'm super pumped. This will be my first ever public hunt and probably the only hunt I get to go on this year besides any youth hunts we may get for the kids.

Going on the first hunt there 11/7-11/10 which is before hundreds of other hunters have been running all over the place so hopefully that will be good.

Kids ended up going 0/6 today. 2 more weeks to wait for the next draw and hopefully they can draw something.

I hunted there last year and it was fun but extremely hard hunt. Very thick cover. Good luck on your hunt.

I won as well. From my research it looks like a difficult hunt, low success rate, wicked mosquito's, and a lot hunters.

I would appreciate any additional info you guys might have for this place. Thanks in advance.

All of mine still say "Application Received". I guess that means I didn't get picked this year? A lot of them say that the application deadline is 9/15. Would that not indicate that the draw for those would be the next day?

9/15 applications will be drawn on the 16th. If it says application received the drawing hasn't happened yet.
