I'm in A this year. I hunted there last year for first time also in segment A. Last year was in the upper 20s every morning and lots of nice deer taken. I saw one deer pushing 160 just out of range and missed a 130-140 the last evening.

For those that need the Bowhunter Ed course for Hagerman. We have scheduled a private course (field day only) for Saturday afternoon, 19 September 2020. It will be conducted at the Hagerman Refuge, and reserved for the drawn hunters. Limit will be set at 20.

As a reminder, you will need to complete the online portion.

PM me your email address and I'll respond with a link to the course as well as pertinent information.

What is up everyone. I drew a Hagerman Seg A tag as well this year. I am a newbie to Hagerman, but am really looking forward to the hunt, so much that I made a TBH account after years of reading threads.

Ive been bowhunting big game for about 10 years, and recently moved back to Texas from Wyoming (laid off oilfield). I am in my mid 20s. Im conservation minded and am really thankful to be able to hunt some public land in Texas.

What are some of the unwritten rules I should understand for my first year? (Scout before Thursday so you know exactly where to place a stand, etc). All I can do for a few weeks is e-scout so I am building a general understanding of each area. Any areas that are really bad hunting/ crowded that I can just rule out off the bat (any O&G production that makes deer weird?)

What are regulations on after a harvest? Are most deer field dressed & carted out or quartered and packed?

What about NWR hunt hours? You have 1.5 hours after sunset to find a deer and pack it out if you shoot at last night (power hour)? Just some basic thoughts. I want to be legal, strategic with limited time and resources, and courteous to those who have hunted this place for years.

I am hoping to scout the last weekend in October. Thanks for your time, feel free to leave any thoughts or none at all. Cheers

Welcome perfmonkey. We should be getting an email on an orientation before the hunt that should answer a lot of your questions.
Just be courteous during the hunt. This is not a spot and stalk style hunt. If you have to move around, do so around noon.
Read as many previous threads as you can. Good luck

Most of your questions will be covered in the orientation and there is definitely an opportunity to ask at orientation as well. Big things are no baiting, you have to sign in and sign out every day, and try not to walk around to spot and stalk or still hunt. It is a big area, but you will walk through other's sets if you do so. Its a beautiful place, but its a hard hunt only being there 3 days with no baiting.

Spent another morning out scouting and just canít get over how much land there is to cover. Has anyone else been out yet as I didnít really see anyone? I saw the same White Ford F150 out there and suspect they were scouting.

Three encounters with cottonmouths so they are definitely stirred up and none of the three were very friendly..... be careful out there.

Snake on the right is definitely a cottonmouth. Snake on the left is a water snake. Harmless but they can be aggressive. The snakes will still be out there in November. I almost stepped on a cottonmouth last year so be careful. Most guys will start scouting a week or two before the hunt. You can scout right now to get the lay of the land and find possible trails to hunt. I wouldn't count on any sign you find now being there when the hunts start. Scout a week out and hunt the most recent sign.

The only rules that really matter while hunting hagerman is to hunt from dark to dark until you whack a good one, and post updates and photos often during the hunt so we can all follow along.

Also, Haaker will probably shoot the biggest deer out of SFA's spot.

Got out and walked the main trail of Big Mineral with the kids just to actually lay eyes on the place a month back.

Since then, taken two half days from work (last Tuesday and yesterday) to do some actual scouting. Walked until I couldn't walk anymore and still have only looked at one unit.

Really falling in love with the place....wildlife everywhere...saw 40 turkeys just yesterday.

I've seen deer and a few rubs as well...If I don't connect, it won't be from lack of trying
