Default Grapevine Hunting 2021-2022

As the draw application window comes to a close, figured it’s time to start the new thread for this season.


For those who have gotten drawn in the past, how long did it take before you found out?

They post results online. If your number is listed you are in. Forget the date but should say on website

A website different than “ https://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/gr...ng/Hunting.asp “?

Right now it doesn’t have a date specified, just “winners will be notified”. Wasn’t sure if that meant they would make everyone aware when the draw is over or not, but makes sense that they would post the results on the website.
Preciate it!

In the past you got a number when you turned in your application, then they posted the winning numbers online which notified who won. When I turned it in this year they said they'll just call if you win

For the waterfowl permit, has anyone gotten a response yet? I called the office yesterday morning (forgot about them going live the day before) and they said they had not hit the quota yet. I sent my application in a few minutes later. This morning the website says they have met the quota.

I turned mine in the morning of the 3rd as well and haven’t heard anything about it either.

I called them on Tuesday. The guy was polite of course, but said it would be "maybe two weeks" --very unsure. Wonder why that long?

Sent my permit application Aug 3rd @11am
Just received #463 with the attached message from the grapevine office.

“I am working through these in order of which they were received. Even if your email was sent minutes apart from another one, one may be processed and approved up to 3 days before the other. Please have patience with the process.”

There's the deer deadline which ran from 7/1-7/31.. Then there's the waterfowl permits that opened 8/2 and were first come first serve which I think some are talking about above. Probably why the deer apps are delayed, gotta get through them bird hunters so they know when to cut it off

It did take about a week for them to get through the waterfowl permits so it wouldn’t surprise me if it takes a few days to get through all these calls.

They’re not known for working relatively quick over there. I was gonna give them about a week to get through everything.

Well I contacted the usace grapevine office this evening about when they thought they would be finished with calling the drawing winners… and got the pleasure of knowing that I wasn’t drawn for deer. So good luck to the rest of you.
Should figure out by the end of Monday.

Got drawn for the deer permit again this year...Got a call from the Corp of
Engineers to come in to pick up my permit. Planning on hunting hard for Daddy Big Buck, along with my friend. I would be interested in information on someone with blood trailing dogs to retrieve a deer, if needed. Anyone know of a contact?
