Looking forward to it yet again. I know its a tough draw, but getting selected for Palo Duro two years ago and the experience that was will keep me forever applying. My father is getting up in age, and I really want him to experience the Chap. Keeping my fingers crossed for that hunt.

How does this work? Do they have a Ranger go and sit with you? They let you hunt a protected compound or somethin?

My dad and I have 16 points each for GDE, but we only put in for high profile hunts, like the Chap or Powderhorn. Drew archery deer at the Chap last year. We have 10 points each for Antlerless/Spike, Management and Turkey.

There are several locations under the E Postcard waterfowl. We drew Richland Creek WMA. Checked in on Friday, picked compartments. They show you to the compartment on Friday afternoon to scout and place a blind. Then you are free to hunt Saturday and Sunday mornings. Most of these are on larger WMAs and you will basically be given a compartment and you are responsible for everything else. Transportation in/out, decoys, blind set up, etc. Similar to true public hunting BUT you don't have to race the crowds and you are guaranteed a spot. Used to do the public duck hunting at Justin Hurst (good old Peach Point) back in the day but getting way too old for that stuff now.

I was told the idea behind e-postcard hunts was to reduce costs to TPWD by not having staff on-site each day of the hunt.

The e-postcard archery hunt I was drawn for last year had a mandatory orientation with the biologist on day 1. He showed us how to check-in and record data off any deer that were shot, then he took off.

I have 7 and 8 points in 8 categories, I know it's not close to enough for a couple of them but hoping I may be able to hit 1 or 2 this year

Folks at Nannie Stringfellow WMA said they went to E-Postcard so they could take standbys and not have to accept cash. They weren't set up for credit cards. E-postcard hunts are free if you have the annual permit. Nannie said they used to accept cash from standbys under the regular draw hunts but were audited and told it was against policy for them to handle cash. Another reason for this category I guess.

I drew the Dimmitt Playa pheasant/waterfowl hunt a couple years ago. That specific site was so far away from the closest office that they just sent me a packet of information about it (map, parking, etc.) and basically said "here's all the info., send us a report with pics when you leave." The lady I spoke with was really nice, they allowed me to go up a day early to scout it out, but couldn't provide any kind of updates on water levels or anything, just the reports of the previous hunters.

The hunt area itself is supposed to be protected, but the poaching is bad up there (she even told me it was), so it's not really "protected." We had a guy that showed up to poach while we were there. When he finally saw my truck he turned around, got back in his truck, and sped off. Let her and GW know but he was in a different part of the county so I'm sure they didn't catch him. With all the empty shell hulls we saw, it gets hit much harder than the couple weekends they open it up to the public hunts.

Nobody to sit with you, no orientation or check-in or anything, and not really protected either

I drew LRGV NWA and they didnít have orientation or anyone on site other than a federal GW who passed through a couple of times. So they donít have to be e-postcard to operate like that.

This, the way the state parks re-acted be prepared if drawn for hunts to be cancelled and points to be restored just the reality of the situation. You will get you permit fee back but not your entry fees, I'm also hearing there will probably be no standbys spots this year.

Yep, I also bet they cut down on the number of groups drawn per hunt to minimize the amount of people contact. Might only see 1 or 2 groups drawn per hunt period.

I was able to view all the hunts, but I kept getting an error message when I tried to apply. I was a little bummed to not see Richland Creek WMA as an option for Archery deer. I’ve been wanting to win that hunt for a long time. Edit: Richland creek is available for E-postcard hunts and Gun Deer Either

Could you have applied for youth hunts in the past. My daughter is still showing PP on youth hunts and she is 26 years old. I have been applying for her since she was 9 and she has never drawn. My son has drawn twice for youth hunts and i have been selected twice on archery hunts. I'm hoping this will be her year as she is well into double digits in several categories.

Think they figured out a new money raiser. I noticed Kerr is on epostcard too but you have to buy the public lands permit to enter the epostcard.

You lose youíre points when youíre drawn, not when/if you claim it.

Can someone school me on entering as a group? I've always applied solo but want to start applying as a group with my wife, Dad and a buddy. My buddy and I each have preference points but my wife and Dad don't. How does that go? If one of us get drawn we all do?

Hunt In: Central Texas
Default

I have never applied in Texas before, but after looking at the E-postcard deer archery hunts, are those for youth only? I could be reading it wrong but the age requirements make it seem like those are youth hunts?

Cut the points in half or 3 ways for a "average". So your wife and dad will lower the total preference points.

If you apply for a group and get drawn everyone goes.
