I think we have all been in some of those areas. No secret spots on the vine.

100%
I know for sure I could get in there and hit my favorite trees. Heck, I wouldn't even need to pinpoint my favorite trees, just give me a tree in that area.
Good ol' days.
I'm glad I don't get drawn. Too many rattlesnakes out there anyway.

Some day, Larry, some day.

Congrats

Wonder what went wrong with their notification system? Cause I was in the same boat, never got notified and just found out because I happened to ask when calling about waterfowl

Did they say anything about waterfowl? I see the site has all permits have been given out. Our group had our emails just after midnight but no one has heard anything.

Anyone gotten their waterfowl golden tickets?

They didn’t say anything about waterfowl other than to follow the instructions online and they’ll let us know

Just got our permits in the mail today.
Do we just take the permit to their office along with Texas hunting license and hunter education to get the actual permit or did they change it for this year?
Good luck to everyone else that entered!

No, that is your actual permit that you will keep. No going into the office this year.

I asked the same thing, no need to go to the office. He just said to have proof of Hunters Ed and your license on you in case you get stopped.

I sent my email at 5:45am Monday, got a permit in the 150s Saturday. My dad sent his at 11am and also got his Saturday afternoon in the 300s. Next door neighbor put in at 8am Monday and hasn't heard anything. Weird.
