I put in with 3 pts. I bet they received a lot more than the 800-900 applications they usually get because of the bowhunter education change. Small units to hunt this year will also hurt the draw odds since they will draw fewer names than when there is more acreage to hunt. Next year will be ridiculous and almost impossible to draw when TPWD takes over the draw.

They don't make trips into town everyday. They save them up till they have a deposit worth taking in or they need something in town and will drop them off. That's not anything to worry about.

If anyone is unconvinced of big deer out there myself and another Texas Bow Hunter found this while hog hunting out there this year. We were about sick to think of the hunter that missed this one!

Big Mineral?

Looks just like a deer I watched 3 years ago from 150 yards away.

Only for application, still have to be certified prior to the hunt

To my understanding, bowhunter ed and proficiency requirement will remain after state takes over drawing.
