Looks like there were some exotics taken last year on that hunt. I put in for it for that reason, but wasn't drawn.

Second draw is the day after the deadline for paying the permit fee for those drawn first round. Usually 10 days after first draw.

We got drawn for Mason Mountain doe hunt.

Not this year. Applied with my son, its his first year as an adult. So zero preference point for him. It may be some years before we get drawn.

Good luck everyone

I did for the Old Sabine River Bottom, gun either sex. I live near it, and not the most exciting spot, but I am sure I will still go either way.

I have been very lucky this year. I drew Chaparral GDM and Abilene SP GDE. I also drew a rifle Elk tag in New Mexico. Just in time also, I am down to a couple of shanks in the freezer.

0 for 15 so far this year. Building up preference points where you start to begin getting picky on your selections. Kids were too old for youth hunts this year. Congrats to all that drew

I drew the ones I had a lot preference points for. I applied for a lot of hunts in each category though. I am not a trophy hunter so I am happy with a wide selection.

So far I have struck out across the board still have a few pending. Guess I burned my luck when I drew powderhorn last year. As big smith said itís a great hunt got to share a skinning rack with him.

Lightning struck and I drew the Granger Lake epostcard hunt. I recently moved to Georgetown so I was hoping I'd get lucky. Now I've got some serious scouting to do. I've never been out there, just heard the stories.

I got a whole bunch pending second draw and four, not drawn.

But I did get an e-mail from TPW today, opened it and found I did get drawn for a hunt I probably should not have applied for, but did so anyway. I got picked for White Oak Creek WMA. The place sounds like something I would love to hunt, just a long ways away and I know absolutely nothing about it, other than it's close to Arkansas and Okiehoma. Then there are lots of trees, a creek and river that runs through it.

It would be a long drive to a area of the state, I have only driven through, one time, many years ago, when I was a kid. I have not been within 200 miles of that area of the state, since that one trip as a kid.
What is odd, is that was one of the few I applied for, that I only had one point for, and I got drawn. Me who never got drawn for over 20 years of applying. I guess very few people put in for that hunt.
Looking at pictures, maps, areal photos, and some videos, it looks very interesting. A long drive to only have three days to figure the place out, very seriously considering going.

Not a thing for myself or son this year. Last year was the first time I entered my son, he drew san angelo either sex. I had false hope youth hunts were easier to draw. Going to see what I can find for him to hunt this season.
