Deer here are avg size and I can kill those at home!
Nice!!!! Congrats! We need to see pics!

Finally winding down from a long week of hunting. Plenty of ups and downs along the way for a first time trip. I will always appreciate the awesome experience of this one. This is the first TP&W drawn hunt I have ever done and will hopefully not be the last. Saw a large variety of wildlife. It was a little sad at the end as I could not recover the buck I shot today. Even though we could not find him after several hours I am still very appreciative For my friend that helped do the tracking and the staff that was patient with us and helped get us out safely. I will write more about the experience if y’all are interested, but I wanted to use this as a platform to thank the folks (paid and volunteers) that put this hunt on. I also I owe thanks to TBH for making it possible to meet good folks as well. Hope everyone has a safe trip home.

I saw only two bucks while hunting there. The other was bigger. I shot this buck with 10 minutes of shooting light left. All I had was a quartering shot and no time so I sent it to the boiler house. I thought, maybe I missed but I shot 15 yards. No blood. I had a gut feeling the arrow was in him and the guts sealed the wound channel up. I saw him run maybe 80 yards and darted to the left. I looked and looked and still no blood. The wildlife refuge said I couldn't keep on him if there was no blood, so I looked in the morning. Zig zagged and followed deer trails and found him about 130 yards away. Didn't leave a drop of blood! Hauled him 2.5 miles on my bike to get him out.

It was a great time, lots of kind people willing to help each other out and sharing roughly where each other's hunting to leave space for each other, that seemed to work out to me. Most people I saw hunting though really kept near the roads, I shot this one deeper in the brush. I saw lots of nilgai sign but fresher deer sign where I shot him, so pick your quarry and hunt them hard!

Man that was a tough hunt, we were fortunate enough to land a nice doe, had an opportunity of 2 doe's coming down a trail which would've given me a 12yd shot, I drew back as I was in a really nice brush blind under a tree, clipped a twig and they both took off for about 20yds. They both ended up working their way back across my field of view and shooting lane which was about 2-3 feet wide and she stopped at the brush line which I had ranged at 44yds, adjusted sight when I knew she was walking the brush line i ranged, drew back and let her fly and it couldn't have been any more perfect of a shot, complete pass through on the pump station and she ran no more then 20yds and there she laid. the last hour on our last evening of the trip and it felt so good to be rewarded with the opportunity after 4 longgggg days of hard hunting. Frustration, dehydration, blisters, thorns, mosquitoes, chiggers, snakes, more thorns, no sighting of any animals, a ton of orange everywhere, muddy swampy tall grass, and in the end it was so worth it and id do this hunt 100 times over. love this place. 31.38 miles on foot throughout those days. We definitely did not slack on the working end for it. and if it wasn't for me and my hunting partner continuously pushing each other through those hard frustrating moments then it would not have gone as it did. DO NOT GIVE UP ON THIS HUNT. Hope to get drawn again as we learned a lot this year and just built up more knowledge of this place to come back even stronger next year.

I'll be banging away on the ducks but will stay out of Rattlesnake on Saturday and Sunday for those of you attempting to hunt Horsehead. Be prepared for a bunch of duck hunters and some airboats in that bay. There was someone stalking the entire south side of it (horsehead) last Saturday and I didn't see him push anything out. I was fishing a hundred yards or so off the bank.

Here for Orientation now, but did some exploring this morning and found me what looks to be a promising spot a few miles away from the roads we can drive on so hopefully I won't be surrounded by orange in the morning. Set up a pop up under a tree and brushed it in with a pile of dead limbs that was laying around tree.
It is about 20 yards off a natural game trail with alot tracks on it. We will see what happens. Of course there are tracks all over the place. Definitely challenging terrain on a bike. Good luck everyone!

Were you the one that asked about using dead branches and they told no?

Wish they would’ve kicked the guy out arguing with the wardens about the motorized bikes! Good luck tomorrow.

Anyone using Bobcat road, be careful. Somebody has set a popup 20 yds off the road part way down. When passing sing your favorite song out loud, LOUD so they don't mistake you for an orange Nilgai!

Last year the laguna master and I ran into the guy with the motorized bike. He told us “sucks to be you.” Later they were looking for his ***. Ran into him today and I was like “oh yeah your the same guy from last year.” Seems like he was begging to have his permit removed.

Good luck guys, my buddies tag teamed a cow nilgai in unit 1 on last hunt.
One misjudged and hit her low, then she went by another friend and he tagged her high.
Jumped her 2 hours later and she didn't even look hurt.
They make the distance misleading because of their size, so have a range finder handy, or pre-range all the structure around your spot.
Ya''ll Shoot Straight and Shoot Often!!

Saw about 8 cows this morning and a nice mature buck chasing a doe hard. Snuck up on the cow from about 200y but got busted at around 80y out. Seconds after putting arrow back in quiver, a herd literally almost run me over. I was able to let one fly at the last one and my lead was perfect but just a tad too high. Exciting hunt. Debating on walking back out. If rain doesn’t stop by 230 I’ll just come back in the morning.

Haven't seen a thing but mosquitoes and ticks.
