Default Pending 2nd draw- don’t lose hope!!

Got the email this morning! Me and my group just got drawn for the archery hunt at Laguana Atascosa 10/25-10/29! I’ve seen it happen to a few of y’all but seems to be a few and far between. Whenever we get moved to “pending second draw” I always write us off. Was totally shocked when I opened up my email this morning! Will be our first time down there. I followed along the thread last year, that’s what got us interested in the hunt. Gonna go look at old threads for any tips/advice. Or if y’all wana post it on here that would be cool too. Anybody else get drawn for this hunt?

Our group also won LA archery on second draw today. Bad part is we already won LRGV Teniente archery on the first draw and I don’t think I will be able to swing both hunts.

I was selected from "pending 2nd draw" for Richland Creek Archery deer, this year.
It does happen sometimes.

I got the second draw for Big Lake Bottom archery. First time I've been drawn on second draw. I'm gonna wait and make sure it's not a mistake but I remain gardedly optimistic.

Good luck. Made my first trip last year........and my last. Just not my cup of tea. Too many people everywhere. I did finally find a spot fairly close to the road and off a ways into the brush that nobody bothered me. Saw a descent buck and two cows. No shot opportunity on any. Have fun, that’s the main thing!

We also got selected for Laguna on second draw. Wish there was a pass button, to pass it onto the next person. Already paid for another hunt same time.

I wrote it off too - until this morning! super pumped for Laguana this year - hopefully it'll turn out better than last year - if it doesn't the place is awesome never seen so many different birds and ecological zones in one area

Congrats! I'll be there as well. I believe there is a total of 5 other TBHers that got drawn also. It's a hard hunt but it can be a very rewarding hunt also if you put the work and time into it. It's a place like no other. Looking forward to it!

I had gotten drawn, it was hard but decided to pass. I was only going to be able to hunt 2 days because of another commitment. I wanted to give someone the opportunity that could put in the time that I know it would take on that hunt to get it done. Good luck!

E postcard is tpwd's effort to provide low or no cost hunts. You have to have the APH permit to apply but once that is done you don't have to pay for the app and no cost if you win.

Plus, I think, you use your own tags for them.

E-POST is the electronic replacement drawing for the old "Post Card" drawings. Not all EPost drawings require use of you license tags. For those not aware of old enough to remember see Wiki below.
