Sorry to hear it! My daughter turned 17 last November. We put in countless applications every year since she was very young- never drew a single tag ever!!!! Absolute B.S.
The worst part is when she turned 17 she lost all her points- I guess the state makes you start all over when you turn 17- absolute garbage.
Parks and wildlife really needs to fix this system.....

Well, that doesn't help me. Next time send me a list of your won draws and I will advise on which ones to drop

I've already got one second draw this year. If I get another I will officially pronounce myself lucky.

Really, I'd just like to get some of the waterfowl draws on the 1st. I already know I'm going to win the desert bighorn draw (it came to me while I was daydreaming instead of working) so I need to plan around that.

Can you share some of that luck?

One in my group is dropping a Balcones for Dec 6-8, whoever gets it let me know. We will probably be in the same area.

I'll gladly share whatever I have left. Most of it is going to be used in the sheep draw though. I've already started getting into shape. I quit drinking before 9am and I only ate a regular fry for lunch. Tomorrow I'll set the remote one chair over so I have to lean to change channels. I expect that should about do it.

I've continued my ~10 year dry spell of never drawing anything, however my son got a Management hunt at Daughtrey on 11/16 - 11/17. Spoiled little ****er wins something 2nd year in a row.

I just logged into the TPWD website to make sure all of my "Pending 2nd draws" were correctly converted to "Not Selected". and sure enough...they were.

My little dude ended up going 1 of 7 on his first ever attempt as an 8 year old. He's fired up about getting to see a new area of our beautiful State.

Last night I decided not to use my luck on the 2nd draws and shift that to the waterfowl draws. There's not much luck left after I win the sheep draw. I may have to rest a year or two.

I notified the state and they properly reclassified all my pendings to not selected. If you won a second draw, please post your thank yous on this thread

Moving to an online system and allowing more than one application per category really made it difficult to draw anything... And sure inflated the preference points...

I drew an epostcard archery hunt at big lake bottom wma this year, after striking out for several years.

I seem to remember more hunt dates including weekends in years past. Has that changed?
