Port Isla Inn - booked a room here for my hunt. started off with an ABnB in Laguna Vista but thought the extra 10 min ride was worth the 70% cost savings for a house.
has anyone had any theft problems here? wondering what to do with the coolers in an open truck, especially if we have meat in them. don't really want to carry in and out of the room.
thanks

We stayed there too, will be mostly hunters there. Dominoís and a Stripes within walking distance great on that first night when youíre wiped out. Walmart and HEB close by. Totally worth it.

It was a 100gr fatal steel. 500gr total arrow weight running in the 290s.

I drew Teniente this year. Debating going up in arrow weight but most definitely going to a COC head.

As to the hunt itself, I put in about 60 miles in 4 days on the E bike. Around this same time last year they got a lot of rain and it made it pretty easy to differentiate fresh sign from older sign. If it wasnít slimy nilgai scat, I didnít hunt it.

If your schedule allows, hunt the full time. Some people give up early, and I shot those 2 cows on day 3 and day 4.

Itís a hard hunt but it is a TON of fun! My wife and I stayed in a rent house on Long Island. Cool community!

Hunted there about 4 years ago. Saw a young Nilgai and a couple of average bucks. Couldn't seal the deal. I had several times that I didn't see anything but other hunters walking were through, sometimes in groups while talking and being loud. I guess they were thinking they could actually sling some arrows at something by walking all over the **** place. Who knows if they were successful...more power to them if they were, but it didn't help me by sitting on the trials I took the time to scout.

I just wish they'd let you access the refuge from the park instead of having to drive the entire way around!

So what I’m gathering from last years thread is that most kills are in unit 8. Is that just where most folks hunt? Where do you park when hunting unit 8? Where would you park to best access unit 1?

For unit 8 you drive down county road and there are gates with roads/trails that go into the unit. Its a long slow drive speed limit is like 15. And they monitor speeds.

For unit 1 the parking lot on General Brant road is pretty much only option. I think one is archery only. We did rifle hunt at LANWR

Don't know, my guess is heavier drain 125fixed for Nilgai

All I have is100 grains of contemplating moving up to125 grain- maybe G5 monte or similar

Iím gonna stick with the 125 Grain Slick tricks 1Ē Diameter. Keep in mind they look small but four blades cut close to or as much as a broader 2 or 3 blade.

Iíve heard and seen some great results from the G5 Montec Carbon Steel, indestructible, (I was not a fan of sharpness and inability to replace blades but Iíve been told the CS are sharper than the other Montecs). Iíll attach some photos from a broadhead test, I havenít tried them myself Iíve only used the Strikers.

Steel force and Magnus are two other options to explore if you donít like slick trick. These two are commonly referred to me.

Shoot whatever you have confidence in, make good judgement, NO quartering to shots and NO MECHANICALS!!!!!

Anyone else have recommendations that have worked well on the Nilgai???

Are frontal shots off the table?

That leg wound is crazy, glad you made it through that and can joke about it now but it's a reminder of what can happen out there in the sticks. I carry a tourniquet and quick clot and a small IFAK whenever there's sharp things or bang sticks involved in case something goes away.

Correct.

Yeah for sure it was a scary time I thought I was a goner. I bled until I passed out having the longest dream of my whole life in a matter of seconds I woke up to face slaps. My friends were getting tourniquets tied and applying pressure when I collapsed. I phoned a friend when I woke up to tell him I was done I really thought so. We were a long way from the road in the mountains of Hawaii. I ended up getting flown to a better hospital then the first one I arrived at. Plenty more to the story maybe Iíll write it down someday.

Good on you for being prepared!

My son and I drew for 12/16-12/20. Am really looking forward to it. This will be his first trip down there and my 6th. He drew Devils River last year and we had a blast on that hunt. I canít wait to show him Laguna.

Iíll attach some photos from a broadhead test, I havenít tried them myself Iíve only used the Strikers.

Steel force and Magnus are two other options to explore if you donít like slick trick. These two are commonly referred to me.

Shoot whatever you have confidence in, make good judgement, NO quartering to shots and NO MECHANICALS!!!!!

Anyone else have recommendations that have worked well on the Nilgai???

Good to know Slick trick 125 gr magnums work well on nilgai. That has been my go to broadhead for many years. I have taken some 200 plus pound hogs with them but never a nilgai.

In my opinion I feel that mechanicals are only good for soft animals like whitetail. The hide and thickness on nilgai and big pigs are another story.
