11 points in mule deer is my highest point category. I have been fortunate to draw many other hunts. Good luck to everyone this year.

I put my entries in without problem. I've already received 5 emails telling me I drew hunts too. Not sure what they've changed this year, but I'm liking it!

Sounds promising for us GOFs! If folks got less than 5 points, or under 50 yoa, shouldn't even bother with applying.



The fish are biting and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

Once you're in the bighorn club, they should restrict your future entries to doe and hog hunts.

All in favor, say "aye".

Any suggestions on the best draw hunts for a hunter with disabilities? (im in a wheelchair) Always looking for more opportunities to hunt. They seem few and far between.

Thought I would ask.

Thanks for the help.

Is the Archery Exotic “ deadline expired” a glitch or did I just miss something last year?

I know that Chap has several ADA blinds. If you get selected, let them know & they will work with you. Good folks at the Chap.

Contact TPWD public hunts folks in Austin. Ask them for a list of ADA compatible hunts. They probably have something they can send ya.

Gus Engeling has a few ADA blinds and compartments that are worth looking into.

The park hunts have more success and access for someone with disabilities.

Try the inks lake, they had a couple wheelchair fitted blinds and they do a great job with the hunts

Where ever you draw, call ahead and inquire.

My father brought the box blind he built for my brother and him to hunt in together, it was a 5’x10’ trailer box blind. They don’t fit in regular sized box blind being 6’6” & 7’ tall. This was allowed by the Chap on a rifle hunt years ago. They also allowed them to select their compartment with ADA blinds in advance, as many are tower blinds with ladders. The ADA blinds there are excellent.

ArcherA, Some of the hunts allow someone with physical or medical challenges to have a person along to help them out. Course that person is not allowed to hunt. But are there to help the hunter out. I had one such instance last year, where I hunted with a feller who had a young lady there to help him due to medical reasons. He was assigned a blind a few hundert yards from me.


I've also read where some hunts allow a physically challenged person to hunt from a 4-wheeler or stationary vehical.


I also don't know if you know about a program called Turning Point. There is a chapter here in north Texas. They have hunts for physically challenged persons also. And lots of other activities. Feller on here that goes by the handle "Huntmaster" (Billy) on here, can fill you in on the details. Send him a PM.

Call Inks Lake SP. They used to run hunts for folks with disabilities. This were outside the "normal" draw hunts. Don't know if they still do this.
Their blinds are big and designed to be wheelchair accessible.

They're probably not having a hunt in that category this year. Look at Archery Deer, Garner SP has been added to that category.

I know for a fact that the Chaparral WMA has some accessible blinds and I'm sure some of the other areas do too.

I just throw caution to the wind and apply , the staff is usually very happy to help , when I alligator hunted @ Murphy we got some awesome spots that where ADA friendly for a larger than average boat!
I hope someone handicapped draws the bighorn hunt , I want to see how TP&W handle that hunt

Inks Lake SP has amazing set ups for hunters with disabilities. Here's a link to the hunt I went on there last year.

They'll drive you around in a side by side. When I was at Elephant Mountain they told me they've had to accommodate hunters that has physical limitations that would prevent them from covering the terrain.
