We are done. Headed home. No more room in Prius. He let the 7 RUM eat again this morning. Saw 3 bulls and this one gave him best shot and he buried him at about 200 yards. Also saw a shooter 10 point that got a pass

Congrats on the nilgai!

Did they say anything on shutting the refuge down since the government is shutdown? Iím scheduled for LANWR the 28-30. Havenít heard anything yet on that hunt.

Glen, thank you for the advice and telling us to keep after it, we walked about another mile from where we talked to yall yesterday when we were taking down the popup. We fund a tree like you told us and ended up setting the popup up, did not see anything yesterday. We got back in the blind this morning and at 9am, two bulls showed up about 125 yards away. She took a quartering to shot with the .300WSM and nailed him, he went 20 yards and was dead. Completely destroyed the heart and damaged zero meat. He was not a full grown bull but was still 450-500lbs, about the size of a cow. Thank goodness another group, Daniel and his son, were there this morning as well, because they helped us pack it out. I cant express how much I appreciate their help, that 1.8 miles would have been that much harder had it just been my daughter and I. They also killed a bull Friday, he is a TBH member and said he will post his story this week, they had a 10 hour drive home today.

We were stopped by a State Game Warden on the way in yesterday evening and he said from what he has heard, the shutdown wont affect the wildlife refuges.

Lone star. Awesome. Glad we were able to help a little. Please post up some pics. We were spent when we got that bull out. I’m sure you guys all got a laugh out of the Prius in the parking lot. We were talking about how we hoped your daughter was able to connect. It was a pleasure meeting you and an experience I will cherish.

Congrats to the hunters and fathers! I have a son that will hunt the next one in January. We're excited and hopeful. Is there a check in or orientation at all? Just show up, sign in, and hunt? how were the snakes this time of year? Any tips appreciated.

Hey All,

Any recommendations on hotels or campgrounds nearby? It's just me going now, so not looking for anything fancy.

just get on Hotels.com and book a room. All the hotels seem to be in same area and is a quiet little town. You will be gone before breakfast- La Quinta has Whatburger next door so that is what we went with.

Raymondville has several hotels to choose from. I stayed at the holiday inn. Very clean and price was cheap. About 25 minute drive to the refuge

Got it. Thanks for the info guys!

I'll be driving in on Tuesday the 5th for my 2/8-2/10 hunt. If any of you guys who also drew those dates are interested in meeting up while we're out there let me know.

Happy to be on call if anyone needs help hauling meat out!

I stayed at a house in Weslaco that I found on AirBNB for $30/night. It was well, well worth the extra 15 minute drive each way.

I was lucky enough to harvest an awesome bull on Friday morning. I couldn't believe it. I know one of the other guys said he shot a cow on Friday also but wasn't able to recover it. I saw multiple other cows and calves but always running into the thick cover. The weather on Saturday really shut everything down being cold, raining, and windy. Not a good combo. There was Nilgai sign all over the unit and I had a blast this weekend and met some great guys.

Big shout out to Houston Ducks bc he gave up his Friday hunt to help me pack this guy out. Took us 7 hours and 12 miles from time he was shot until I was headed back to the hotel. A bike or game cart is highly recommended for this hunt ha. But it does make it feel a little more special taking him out on my back. Good luck to the next round of hunters.

Yes sir! Where are you guys staying? Message me if you guys have any luck and I will do the same. I hunted Tennite last year and got a cow so hoping to get a shot at a bull this time. It is some really good eating for sure

Sweet! I guess that means there’s two on the ground unless it took an hour to track it and dump a few more rounds in.
