Default Doc won the lottery!!!!!!!!

Unless somebody is playing a cruel joke I believe I have hit it big. I missed a call yesterday from Austin and they said it was about public hunting. I talked to the guy today and he tells me that I won the Texas grand slam! Holy $&@$!!!!!!! Texas whitetail, mule deer, antelope and a desert bighorn. Thatís as cool as it gets.

Thumbs up Congrats!

That's awesome, Doc! Maybe you can convince them to rethink their no bowhunting position on Desert Bighorns. If you try, you can always mention the article in TPW Magazine highlighting the rich guy who was allowed to bowhunt one because he won the tag at auction. That guy was successful and I think if they saw your trophy room they'd realize you'll have no problem getting one either.

I don’t have a desert but have one booked for 2020. I have a stone and dall. Looks like the deer hunts are this season, antelope next October and bighorn sometime starting in the spring.

Yep, that "win" just probably cost you about $2,500......depending on what your taxidermist charges.

I think I bought 4-5 for me and the same for my wife. I bought a few for all the hunts that sounded interesting. I figured it was a donation. I have been buying tickets for hunts for years. Have been a long time loser!

Jesus, you sound like a Democrat! This is why I donít post on tbh much anymore. I have an awesome life and have been on a bunch of great hunts. I buy these tickets to help generate money for tpwd. I never planned on winning! I hope everyone in America gets richer. Unfortunately some will never have the drive to do so. If anyone wants the things I have then go to school, make good grades, take out a bunch of student loans and become a doctor. Yes, I make a great living but I pay my share of taxes to help the common man. And, Iím very confident knowing that I take care of those in need.

As a guy who was vast experience in never having been drawn for those hunts, I have no meaningful advice for you...

Really though... congratulations Doc. Sounds like you have hit the jackpot and I hope you have a great hunt(s).
