Hey good deer! Thanks for walking by me the other day at 530 pm . Did you forget your light or are you afraid of the dark?

The open house style public meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a brief overview outlining the purpose and scope of the Master Plan, as well as the proposed schedule and opportunities for public involvement. Following the overview will be an opportunity to view maps, ask questions, and provide written comments about the project.

The public meeting information is available to download at the following USACE website beginning April 3: https://www.swf.usace.army.mil/About...n/Master-Plan* Updates/Grapevine-Lake/.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, and other applicable laws and regulations, a 30-day public comment period begins on April 3. Comments and questions pertaining to the proposed revision may be submitted at the public meeting, or emailed to CESWF-PER-Grapevine@usace.army.mil, or mailed to Joshua Quiring: Project Manager, CESWF-PEC-TM, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Regional Planning and Environmental Center, Fort Worth District, P.O.

Default Hog Hunting at Grapevine

Hey friends, I'm getting conflicting information. I just moved to Northlake last summer and I only now realized that Grapevine lake hunting area is about 3 miles from my house. What are the rules on hog hunting out there? I know it's all bow hunting obviously, but is there a season and do I have to apply for a special permit? I'm still kind of a newbie, friends so take it easy on me.

I will be putting in for it for the first time this year as well. I grew up in the area but never hunted until this last year, and im up by McKinney now. Still have folks down that way though. On the map it looks like there is only two parking lots, off 377 by the Knobb hill trail and another futher down Dunham Rd. Are these the lots you guys are talking about that you had your vehicle broken into?

Well, I was trying to figure out where to park and access that was legal. I wasn't sure if you drive by and see 225 vehicles parked all alongside the roads everywhere or not. I ask because what I believe they're referring to as the "bob cat lot" is not one of the two designated parking lots on the map. Obviously if most people can access their spot faster and easier, they will park as close as possible, myself included. I just want to make sure its not.."cheating" if everyone else is playing by the rules and hitting the designated parking lot.

According to the COE, there are only two places to park. That south parking lot would make it harder to get back to the hunting area unless you were will you make the trek.

There was a south lot that wasn't a designated spot but everyone use it with no issues. Then it was a designated spot the past few years but it looks like they took it away this year. I believe that lot is for sale as they are building a bunch of houses over there, so I assume that's why that spot is not longer a 'designated' spot. It was the best parking spot in my opinion. There are guys who park off the bar ditch as well but I'm not sure how often Roanoke cops right tickets. We'll have to get creative with access this year for sure.

The Bob Cat lot was just off 377. I haven't driven by there in a while, but based on the updated maps it looks like there has been a bit more development in that area and the parking area may be closed.

I was one of the unlucky soles that had my vehicle broken into in that lot. The very first day I parked there, three trucks all had windows smashed in and the low hanging fruit taken. The officer on the scene told me that it was not a regular problem, but that it does happen from time to time.

I noticed too that they changed the wording on the website about everyone on the application needing to have their signature on the back or they would throw the application away. I have never seen that for their applications when I was applying in person. I emailed asking if I needed to send my application to the others on it and have it signed. The guy collecting the apps via email said I would need everyone to sign it if drawn. Not sure why the website stated that.

Yeah, typically I would sign my portion and if drawn the others would sign when they picked up their permits.

I was not drawn. Again. What an utter disgrace of a system. Drawn zero times since they went to the draw system. I've lost count of the years...9 or 10 years now? Not drawn one f'ing time. Not once. I know the odds every season are against getting drawn, but this is just ridiculous.

Maybe ol' "Grapevine USACE" will hop on here and explain. I'd love to just be told "look, we don't like you and we pull your entry every season so you're not in the mix." At this point, there's really no other explanation. I'm beyond mad about this. It's really disheartening knowing how much love and respect I used to have for the Grapevine hunting area. To know that I've not set foot on the ground there to deer hunt since before the draw days really really drives me insane.

Can't wait to read all the "first time entry, first time drawn!" posts. Love it. Congrats. So awesome.
