Ideally, but whatever moves on four legs... will have to make sure the boys lay off the spotted cats tho...

we'll have both compound and crossbows in our party. Curious, why would you treat them differently? thanks.

Nilgai are dense animals, a compound is going to have a lot less energy to push an expandable through one vs an xbow. I personally would only use a sharp cut on contact fixed blade on a tank like a nilgai.

Yeah, you will be buried real deep under the jail if you shoot an ocelot, and deservedly so. Weird enough some of the Bobcats have long tails down there too, I spotted one I could have sworn was an ocelot until we got closer too it. The tail was super long but it was a bobcat.
If I recall correctly bobcat are off the list for shooting as well down there because of that reason

Fixed blade broadhead for me on Nilgai.

Also I hunt 2 hours north of that area and Bobcats are strictly off the animals we hunt. Lease owner doesnít want any mistakes made given the Ocelot population there.

Can any of you veterans clarify something for me?

Reading the brochure that came with my permit, it states: "Field Dressing- Harvested big game must be field dressed before removal from the hunt unit. You may quarter your game."

On the third page of the brochure it states: "Cattle Fever Tick Rules- Hunters must place a tarp on their vehicle to eliminate contact with a deer or nilgai carcass. Hunters must skin deer and nilgai before leaving the refuge. A designated skinning station is provided."

My question is, if I quarter a deer or nilgai in the field and place the quarters and cuts in game bags, is a tarp still required for my truck bed? Also, am I required to bring any of the hide to the ranger station, or can I leave it all in the field? I euro mount all of my game, so would it be legal for me to skin the skull and leave that hide in the field as well, or do I have to bring the head in with the hide still on it?

I assume they will clear all of this up at the orientation, but I don't want to worry about for several months if I don't have to!

Thanks in advance!

They will clear this up for you. If you quarter the animal, they want you to bring back some of the hide so they can check.

Only the hide can not come in contact with your vehicle

Yep, make sure you ask and get the ranger's name, the rules can be different depending on who you talk to but the general consensus is that you need to bring as much hide back as you can.

I'd still throw it all on a tarp too just to be safe.

They are pretty strict about the tarp. I would just have one and not worry about it.

What is ironic is that this Red Tick Fever is threatening the local livestock yet this exotic animal was imported by ranchers that the govt is trying to protect by keeping it from spreading to the ranchers that imported this exotic.

Hopefully they won’t make us drag too much hide back. I’d hate to kill something way off the road and have to make a trip back and out for just the hide, especially after a few meat hauls. If it’s not too big of a piece, surely I can just tag it along with some meat.

A spare tarp will definitely be in the truck!

Look on Harbor Freight flyers sometimes they have a free 5x7 tarp Coupon.

Just got off the phone with the assistant manager of the refuge and he said e-bikes will be allowed this year but they must be pedal assisted and have a top speed of 25 mph.

They had free tarps there last year during the late exotic hunt. Ones that previous hunters left.

For anyone doing the October 25th- 29th hunt, does anyone have an extra room I can pay for or want to find a place to split? Still trying to setup my arrangements for down there.

I have a 7' to the seat tripod with a cushioned folding boat seat. Puts you at about 9-10' eye level. Perfect for the refuge.

This is about as high as you would want to go. Anything higher will make you stick out like a hood ornament IMO. There are some places you could place a taller tripod but those areas are limited. Between a tripod and a blind I would go with tripod. I think a blind is too bulky and the deer are not used to it.

How are you guys hauling a tripod in and out? I assume youíre just walking it in and out? And from my understanding you have to take it down after each hunt?

Well, that's kind of a bummer.

For people with disabilities, I get it. But for able bodied people

Why stop at e-bikes? just go straight to ATVs. Hell, just let people drive their trucks. I know I'm exaggerating, but it's disappointing. I thought this hunt would be a level playing field that rewarded those who worked hardest. I can't afford a $1500 e-bike...

Oh well, I'm still going to bust my *** on this hunt. I'll make my own luck.

Technically quiet kat has credit options on the bikes so you can afford it... But realistically it wont change much. You and most other guys cant afford them anyway so there wont be that many out there. Also itll help move some guys further away than the typical stacked locations so at least there is that.

Iím pretty sure youíre right. I doubt you see 5 or more on each hunt. And I donít want it to help guys go further. Then theyíll end up back where I go and it takes a minute or 35-40 to get them. Plus another 30-45 walk lol.

Truly I donít that it will natter bc the bikes can only take you so far on the roads. The brush is unridable so some may go further but venture less into the brush.

To answer a few of the comments above. From my experience on the refuge both a short tripod and a make shift ground blind both have benefits depending on what unit you are hunting and the type of vegetation you are trying to use as cover. I tend to bring more of a lite weight ground blind option due to mobility but it does make the hunt harder since you are at ground level with the game you are hunting and nilgai have great sight. In some of the brush areas the tripod is the way to go and I would recommend a bike along with a modified game cart for mobility if you choose the tripod option. The e-bike should not effect the hunt as bad as one might think, but it does give a advantage of time (speed) and mobility to those that choose that option. I agree with many above this should only be a option for those with disabilities, but we as hunters and outdoorsman do not make the rules, we just have to follow them.

I have a couple camo nets that were sewn to put a rope through it. I tie to small trees or brush and sit behind it. Very mobile, inexpensive, can fold up small and I think works better than a blind.

It looks like it will be limited to only certain roads. Coyote loop is way out there. If the rains catch you out there you will need a lot more than an electric bike to get you out of there.

Where are you reading that it will be allowed on certain roads?

Edit: I read it again and see where it says that. Just not sure if they are still taking about mobility impaired hunters

Just don't go back in there if there is a forecast for rain. You will end up carrying the bike back to the truck.

I know what you mean about getting in shape for this hunt. I have been hunting this place for over 20 years and being in shape is your best bet to get a kill at the Atascosa.

I am still waiting for the miracle on getting selected for the rifle hunt. Over twenty years of applying for the rifle hunt and still no luck.

Itís a shame when public hunting turns into a money game like private land hunting has in Texas. Instead of hard work or outsmarting the competition.

From what I read, the refuge is not a national park. If you look up the rule the dept of interior posted that e bikes would be allowed on national parks. If you look up national parks in Texas, laguna is not listed as a national park nor is any refuge. Just saying.

Hunt In: Wherever I can
Default

I would go by the rules posted for the hunt. The refuge can be as strict as they want to be.

Although since I wont be there I really recommend arguing with them over e bikes during the orientation. You will make many new friends!
