Smile Daughter won Kerr wma youth management

A friends and my daughters will be headed to Kerr WMA for the youth deer management hunt 10/29-10/30. Both 11 yrs old and will be a blast. Wish it was a regular hunt so they could try for some of those big bucks like they posted on FB last year but they will be excited either way. Lord help any exotics that may step out.
Anyone else here get drawn for these dates?

Good luck!! Kerr is always a fun hunt as youth hunter. If you go into the old check station you will picture of my brother and I. My brother shot the big boar and I shot the eight pointer scoring 140 B&C.

Look at the MO Ranch next door for lodging. We stayed there for a prong Turkey hung.

When I told them they both won the hunt their faces lit up especially my buddy's daughter because she said she hasn't been able to harvest a deer yet, so I'm hoping she can drawn her 1st blood.

Looking forward to meeting you Z7buckmaster.

Where are yall going to stay? Mo Ranch has a campground right across the road. Don't think there are rv hookups but there are camp sites and some little huts.

Looking to stay at Kerrville-Schreiner Park in a cabin. I want to keep it as much of an outdoor adventure I can but still have my own shower.

It was a good hunt, Kerr has 1st class facilities. The staff were great and super helpful with explaining the hunt areas and all questions anyone asked. My daughter and I saw 6 different deer between the 2 hunts and only 1 doe presented her with a shot. My friend and his daughter saw more but was unable to connect with any. We hunted in E. Love compartment and had a nice fiberglass deer blind the other 2 in our area would keep water off of you and hidden but a little small to hunt 2 people. The deer cleaning area is set up so we can clean about 6 deer at a time all on a trolley with chain hoist, 2 stainless tables w/ sink, water hoses and their tractor standing by so you can put the carcasses and they haul away. The have a walk in cooler for cold overnight storage and a ice machine.

Great meeting you brother, both my girls manage to connect a shot on a young spike. We only saw spikes and a really nice 10pt. They each got almost identical deer.

Just got back from my Gun Deer Either hunt at Kerr. This is a great facility, but the full moon, high winds, and 80 degree temps made it a tough hunt to get it done in 48 hours. 6 hunters total and 2 bucks (120" 8 with a split G2 & an old 110'" ten point) were the only bucks that were taken. I shot a coyote and one other hunter shot a doe. Took 19 points to draw this hunt, but nothing is a sure thing!

Im the one that killed the 10 point and the doe. It was a brutally tough hunt with the conditions we had. Seen 2 other shooters, one after I shot mine and one the first evening after shooting light. Place is absolutely ate up with deer but that goes to show you how the conditions can make even the best of places tough!

Thats a shame because there are some very nice bucks there! We had a great hunt last year on an extended E postcard hunt.

Did they upgrade their facilities out at Kerr WMA? I was there about 4 years ago and don't remember seeing that. Either way, it is a great hunt and cool place to go.
