I figured as such, just wanted clarification.

pretty much the same here...still holding out for hope on 3 applications that have no status change. How many days after the drawing does 2nd draw occur?

Ten days for people to get in their permit fees. I got drawn on a 2nd draw last year.

Skunked out for the first time since 2012 unless I get a 2nd draw on something, which I'm not holding my breath on.

At least it goes to a good cause (I keep telling myself this). I probably spent around $225 this year on draw fees.

Does anyone have any idea how many 'pending 2nd draw' statuses they have for each WMA? I'm pending 2nd draw on 5 WMA's for mule deer and not selected on one WMA for mule deer.

My 11 year old son hasn't drawn a hunt in the four years he's been able to apply. I got drawn for a PL archery hunt at Kerrville Schreiner Park in December.

I'd rather him get drawn than me. We'll try again next year and beyond.

Anyone know when the BTTH will be drawn if not already? Sure wish they would go back to the old regs. Havenít drawn in quite some time now. Used to draw something every year.

Liked the old system better too, we used to draw at least every other year. When you have folks out there putting in for 88 hunts, kinda kills the odds,

Two kiddos haven't drawn a single thing under the new online system, IMO it sucks!

Coming from a Texan who loves hunting the west, I'm surprised that you even bother with Texas.

Maybe I shouldnít...ha! I still get a couple hunts a year in out west so the Texas draws would just be a bonus if I ever drew one.

1 for 25 this year including the youth divisions.
And the one I drew was a gator hunt that was cancelled due to the hurricane. So it's really 0 for 25. I was drawn last in 2014 I believe and that was an archery whitetail hunt

Edit- 0 for 26. I didn't get a doe tag for the forest either..been a few years on that one as well. Next year's my year

The odds might be abysmal but Texas is a really cheap date when it comes to entry in the draw. (perhaps that's why the odds are so bad).

Youíre definitely right there. Much cheaper than most states so putting in for 20-30 hunts isnít unreasonable

Bow or gun? The bow hunt is my go to hunt first time ever I can't go. I thought they canceled the bow hunt. Hunt right of ways where they enter big open flats, always have had successful hunt. Maybe not bucks but deer and thats all I want. Aransas WR

I drew 1 of the 10 exotic archery hunt permits at Garner SP from 12/4 - 12/8. I was pretty excited until I searched Garner on TBH and read the reviews from years past. Other than the unusually strict rules, the relatively low success rate, and the commercial hunters that were contracted to wipe out the axis herd, it sounds like a great exotic hunt, lol.

Iíve never been to Garner SP, so at least it might be a fun camping trip.

It is still better odds then when I hunted Exotic-Archery at Kerr WMA in 2006. No one killed anything the year before, the year of our hunt, and the year after. At least there was a 14% success rate last year for Garner Archery Exotic.

Congratulations and good luck!
