Default Don't Hate Me: Drawn Chap GDE

Well, I've been pretty fortunate over the years on the Public Hunt draws BUT won the draw hunt lottery today. Got selected for the Either Sex Gun Hunt at Chaparral. Maybe I can get some redemption.

We were fortunately selected 2 years ago for the archery hunt down there. Did a semi-live hunt and ended up botching an opportunity at a good buck. This time I'm using the gun so no excuses.

For those who are wondering, we had 10 preference/loyalty points (our average) in this category as a group. Not real high but apparently enough. Including youth hunts with my kids, javelina hunts and the archery hunt mentioned above, this will actually be the 8th time I've hunted down there. Awesome piece of property and am looking forward to getting the opportunity to hunt for bucks with a gun down there.

That’s awesome. I’ve been putting in for 5 years now and haven’t been drawn for anything yet but hope to get drawn one of these days.

Congrats! We had 11 points for our group and only put in for the Chap and Powderhorn. Didn't draw Chap, but did draw Powderhorn! My dad and I have been applying for 17 years and finally got drawn. Good luck!

Can one draw for the same hunt multiple times or just multiple hunts? Also, if I have 12 points, and I apply for both the Chap and Powderhorn, do they use the 12 points for both? Thank you.

Good luck to you as well. I'll be looking forward to your reports from the archery hunt. I may have to follow your suggestion and swing down there for one of their "dove hunts" and do a little scouting while I'm there.

Going to be an interesting year because it looks like they have gotten some timely rain this year. Hopefully it has helped with antler development.

Congrats. I will be getting more Loyalty points in GDE, because I didn't get drawn for the only place I applied, which happened to be the Chap!

Congrats. We have been trying to get drawn there for a long time. My group had average of 20 points this year and put in for Matador and Chap and no luck. There is always next year just want to make it before my father gets too old to enjoy it.

Dennis...My dad and you are in same boat but he has to have at least 23 points for Exotic and hasn't gotten drawn yet. If there any standby available, I am sure y'all will be down there.

I may be down there on Sunday 10/11 or 10/31. depending on the weather. Need to go bird watching at Laguna atascosa on Saturday. If you are down that day holler, we'll trade notes.
