Does nayone know exactly how many permits are drawn for this hunt? Seems like 32 to me but I don't know. 4 groups with 8 permits per group.

Not sure about the exact but the site says 4 groups available. Looks like 16-32 hunters depending on what they do.

Yes its realistic. Depending on what you apply for.

Ive been on drawn hunts ever year for the last 5 and been drawn once already this year. We average Either one or 2 hunts a year. A buddy drew 6 hunts last year and has drawn at least 3 for as long as I can remember. Another drew 2 last year

Only drawn hunters are allowed in when the hunt is on normally, however you *might* be able to call in help to drag out, just depends on the unit and if the rangers are willing to allow that.

We had luck with bringing an outside person. We just called the ranger and asked if he could accompany us and we didn’t have a problem. But he wasn’t hunting.

If you win any archery drawings you’d be notified today? Just want to make sure I didn’t win any other archery hunts before I pay for Fort Boggy.

They are having problems with the draw system, either that or they decided they need a lot more hunters to harvest the numbers in the management plan.

My dad camped out with me last year at Matagorda Island and was not drawn at all. No one seemed to have a problem with it.

Don't say that! Now I'm nervous.

By the way; how long do we have to buy the permit?

Flash edit - mine got withdrawn for Boggy.

Someone shed some light on it for the newbies that have only put in for draws this year? What happened?

It looks to me that they screw up the hunts with "group base permits".. Those will be Choke Canyon and Fort Boggy.

It doesn't matter if you paid, they will withdraw the permit and refund your money if they drew you in error.
