Anybody know which compartments are the bigger ones? Being we have a full group, figure we might get one of those.

If you can get in a compartment with the San Miguel or the Frio on it, there are some monster deer there. Have seen several 160+ along the river while fishing.

Few years ago my son had unit 9 which was north side of lake. Easily had enough room for 3 or more setups. He shot nice mature buck. If wet weather will be long walk though if don't have good 4 wheel drive or atleast then would have been.

I hunted compartment 4 last year for this hunt and it's big. It had 4 stands already set up in it, but the better spots were back by the branch of the river that was dried up (north boundary of compartment.)

Did this hunt two years ago at the Choke Canyon South Shore State Park. It was run with the Daughtrey management hunt. Shot a doe. Saw a monster 10 that I couldn't shoot.

This makes it tough to get a buck:
Must have 7 or fewer antler points with an inside main beam spread of at least 12 inches.

Congrats. I hunted there in January. I believe compartment 4 is the best spot which is the one I hunted. However, the order of compartment selection is predetermined by the TPWD. TPWD picked me first so I got the first pick of the compartments. Didn't get anything but I did see one big 10. The full moon and 80 + degrees weather didn't help but it was still fun. I made a map in pdf format for the hunt. Bring a handsaw and lots of corn. PM if you have any other questions.

What did y’all do for lodging?
I want to camp, brother wants a motel room. But pending on compartment we get would depend where I would camp. And I want to set up camp before orientation, but then, we might get put on a pasture clear on the other side of the lake. Kinda hard to plan.

Here is a link. Nothing special but a place to stay. I have stayed there many of times. https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/c...ng/shelters-ac.

I stayed here for my hunt. Definitely recommend it especially with 4 people. https://www.chokecanyonlodge.com/

Another option. https://rynolodging.com/

Like you said, this a little ways from compartments 1-6 but if you wanted to be closer to the office, here is another spot. Texan Inn and Suites.

Get to the office at least an hour before you are supposed to be there. If you have an apple product, the office address will actually take you compartment 7 and 8 so drop a pin on the office.

Study google earth before you get there. They will have stands setup. I would recommend hunting those because they will feed around those areas and the stands are setup in good spots. Orange vest and hat are required. Walmart is a little ways from that whole area so make sure you have everything you need before you get there. I wish I was going again this year ha.

Electricity which made it nice to have light, electric heater plug in and phone charging. Outdoor water spigot. Firering to burn steaks. Restroom and showers a short walk from the cabins.

They are probably the same as the ones in the APH book which is posted online.

Maybe that’s where I saw it. Will look when I get home since I have the book.
