I wonder if they still say there is fallow in the property and its legal to shoot? Did anyone see any by any chance?

If you are hunting nilgai in units 2 &/or 3 where it is open that might be necessary. My longest shot of the five I shot in the prior year was 60 to 80 yards with the closest at about 20. Three out of the five were running shots and none of them afforded me with an opportunity to get a rest. I would concentrate more, depending on how you are going to hunt (stalking vs sitting), on reflex shooting than long distance shooting. Additional non-solicited advise would be to aim for the white patch on their throat if he/she has spotted you and is facing you. The guy who was with me on the hunt last year shot a bull at first light that was facing him in the brisket (ignoring the advise) and he pulled his shot just a tad. He tracked blood for well over 500 yards and it was clear he hit the meat of the left shoulder. He did not recover his bull. Weekend before last I had another hunter who pulled the same thing on a cow (not at Laguna Atascosa) and we tracked blood on the left side of the trail for several hundred yards. You will either kill it and there will be zero tracking or you will miss it and there will zero tracking. Best of luck.

Under the current regulations for all deer and Nalgia that you kill you have to bring in the hide, head, and legs of each animal for tick inspection. When you bring it in they fill out a harvest log with your name permit number, license number, and fill out a harvest tag to identify the hunter and loaction the animal was killed in case they do find fever ticks. Then they stick each hide, head legs in a bag for TAHC to inspect later.

Yeah I do understand that part as it was in the orientation. But when I talked to the guy that took my info he never asked for exact locations of the animals just what unit it was in. I also wasnít very excited about walking another 6 miles just to go skin two nilgai out for them to check their hides. We brought what we could for them to do their tick inspection.

I think that furlough has a lot of hunters rethinking their plans since there will no help. Therefore reducing the harvest totals.

This was spot on for me. I was hunting solo and at orientation they emphasized no less than 15 times not to expect any kind of help and that we were on our own to pack the animals out. The only time they could help was in the event of an emergency situation. Not a huge deal, but multiple others that I know or spoke with that have been on the hunt in the past have all been able to get assistance from staff when retrieving nilgai with vehicles, especially when one gets killed in the evening. Nobody wants to be there all night waiting for you to pack it out.

I originally had a plan for Saturday to go on a long hike back in 2 and see what I could find. Hunting solo, with 80 degree temps, no assistance available, and the fact that they said they wanted the entire hide for inspection for successful hunts, I didn't feel I could take anything short of a small WT and pack it out in time without risking losing meat. Definitely could not have done a nilgai back in there.

They said there's fallow deer in there and we had the green light on them, but I didn't see any or hear of any being seen. When I came back to the check station one evening, I told them I saw a few deer. They thought I said fallow at first and were very shocked. After I clarified they said something along the lines of them being extremely rare and only a few have even been seen. I wouldn't plan on seeing or hunting them.

FYI to those with upcoming hunts. the bugs aren't terrible, but they're still there. I sprayed down my base layers with Permethrin and never had any issues with ticks, but I have about a dozen chigger bites on my legs. I spent all day Thursday - Saturday out in the brush, so it wasn't bad, all things considered. Mosquitoes and gnats were out when the wind wasn't blowing but they weren't too bad.

I agree with Moose


Yes I would not recommend going in very very far due to the fact that if you shoot something late evening thereís no help. Thatís not a place where you can leave your animal over night either with the heat and coyotes. Best bet is to quarter the animal and put on game cart. If you donít have a cart I would just pack as much of the meat as you can in your pack because when you get back thereís a good chance there will be buzzards on the carcass. We had them circling over before we had even got the second one cut up. Only way I would go in far is with a game cart or wagon of some type with a group of 3 or more so you have help.

So you say you understood the hunt requirments and that the hides, heads, snd legs were required to be brought in, you just chose not to follow the regulations because you did not want to walk back and skin them out. If you do not want to follow the regulations then dont put in for the hunts. They stated the regs in orentation, in writing, and in a text to the hunters and every other hunter that i saw was succesful and brought out what was required.

You know guys like you is what give hunters a bad name, good for the grip it and grin picture and to write about your "kills" on the internet but when the work comes you bail.

I hope one of the guys that is on the comming hunts show your post to the LEO's down there and one of the fed boys comes and pays you a visit.

Iím not saying I didnít bring anything from my kill. I did bring parts of the carcasses like the man that gave our orientation asked for. They have proof that I DID bring parts of the carcasses for their tick inspection. I did not bring the WHOLE hide though. So technically I did follow the regulations thank you.

Oh hush. We were out there less than a month ago and the game warden told us : you all DO NOT have to bring hide out. The tick people can say what they want, but you arenít going to get a ticket. Sure they will rag on you but itís like I told them, you can go get the hide yourself if you want it that bad, they will leave you alone.
YOU WALK MILES A DAY, makes zero sense to pack out a hide for no reason unless your gonna mount it ( a bull)

The warden/rangers specifically told us we had to bring as much of the hide out as we possibly can.

From my experiences down there it seems a few of the rules vary greatly depending on who is making them up from day to day

We were not there and packed my kids nilgai our. Could not imagine carrying the hide and bones out on our backs. 2nd one he shot was about 500 yards from road where we had a cart. We did bring hide out for a rug.

Sorry, you're wrong. I was there less than a month ago and made the board. They asked us to bring as much back as possible. There was no regulation that you have to take EVERYTHING back.

dude... you are way off base. I was there in November. They said to bring back as much of the hide as you could...knowing if you were deep in the brush...hide was not your main concern. It is folks like YOU that I don't want in the woods with me.

Rules and regs. Who needs them? Why don't we all start using bait out there? Why don't we go ahead and start shooting on the day we scout? If we get to pick and choose what rules we follow them i say we don't tag anything afterwards and then pack out only the backstrap because the rest is to heavy and it's to far to pack out.

Another wet blanket in this thread I see, do yourself a favor, call Laguna and verify what we're all telling you. They do not require you to take the entire hide out they encourage you to take as much as you can bring. No one mentioned anything about leaving meat behind. This is not a matter of picking and choosing rules this is a matter of you and koplin not understanding the difference between a rule and regulation vs being encouraged to do something for the betterment of science and stopping an invasive species.

admittedly i don't know you but that seems a little harsh.

going out on a limb and guessing the Perez boys boys have hauled way more nilgai out of that place than you and know that reality sometimes don't match government regs or whats said in orientation. they are good guys, they get it done and are welcome at my camp any time. Congrats again David.

Here are a few photos from my trip. A couple bucks I passed, a nilgai running away, and some scenery. You can always tell a slow hunting trip when there's lots of scenery pics

Overall, was there not a lot of game seen? I drew for the upcoming 1/18 hunt. Curious what I'll be getting into.

Everyone we talked to said they were not seeing anything. We put in 8-12 miles a day and really never saw much. We only saw one nilgai and it was only for about a second. They were also talking about canceling the rest of the hunts because no one was killing anything.

Well that makes a lot of sense. "We want people to kill something but because they haven't lets just close the gates. That should get some results."

Ok well I'm headed down this afternoon with Rods and shotguns in tow and my vacation days are already booked so if they cancel I'll find something to do down there. If it cancels or it's just slow and anyone else watching the this thread is down there and wants to shoot ducks or catch fish on the coast or shoot doves at one of the WMA's hit me up. I'm not just gonna sit at home.

I can’t see them shutting down but I would imagine you are on your own as far as packing out etc

Just finish going over our plan for tomorrow on how to attack laguna atascosa. The terrain has changed so much there is water everywhere and looks like the wind and temps are going to change from one day to another. Put in about 10miles in the bike today and just saw some does, 7í+- rattlesnake, 8í+-indigo snake and some armadillos. Well its gonna be fun tomorrow....
