Good number of deer in the area. Should be a fun hunt. Cpl of threads on this if you search the history. Good luck. My son got drawn as well for Albert Bessie SNA

It is an awesome place divided up into 5 compartments. My son drew this hunt last year.

We drew compartment 3 and hunted near the parking lot of Cedar Chopper loop. It was unseasonably warm when we were there the week of Christmas and movement was slow, but Hagen managed to take a nice buck. The campgrounds are down by the river and it is really nice down there if you have camping gear/trailer/RV.

Take a pop-up blind and comfortable chairs, whatever compartment you get placed in, find sign and setup, brush the blind in really well, we put out sweet feed and corn.

I'd say the two easiest compartments are 1 and 2.

I have some maps, etc. feel free to reach out if youd like copies. Cell service is spotty, but I used the OnX app when scouting.

Been out there a few times. Try and get by the entrance. Easiest. Tim’s place is right there. Lots of deer- too many pigs at times.

Take corn and a good pop up blind and a swivel bucket or chair. There are a lot of deer and hogs in the area, even some exotic sheep and wild goats. The food at the Bend General Store by the bridge over the Colorado river is good. If your daughter needs a blind I am only about 20 miles from Bend towards Lampasas and have one she can use. Be sure and pack clothes for hot and cold weather as it can change quickly in the area. If it is hot take insect repellant for mosquitos, ticks and red bugs. For fun you may want to take a varmint call as there are lots of grey fox and some bobcats on the area. I don't think you can shoot them but I use to take the girls and call so they could see them.

They have a huge machine running all day every day chopping all cedars all along the boundary right when you cross into the park on the right. No idea how they will clean that mess up as they sawing them with 1-2' of stumps. It's a huge mess.

Maybe to the left when you cross in? Unless they start chopping there also.

Also, I've seen zero acorns or persimmon berries. I bet this is a super great hunting season. Lots of deer and they'll think they are starving after getting so fat the last 2 years.

Also, as mentioned it will either be hot or very cold/rainy.

My kids hunted there probably 6 years ago. Did a write up on thf. We drew unit 5 down on the river. Both shot bucks out of the same popup on different sits. First ones they saw as you can't be too picky. I think there were 20 kids on that hunt segment and 22 deer harvested. I can drop you a pin and get you close to our spots.

Thanks for all the insight guys! This is her first time drawing and its all she talks about!
Chad-I followed y'alls hunt here on TBH!! Y'all were blessed with an amazing experience, if I can duplicate that in any way I'll be the proudest dad out there!!

I'm thinking of pulling my 12' cargo trailer(i hunt and fish out of it)-its got a/c, heat and outlets etc etc in it or if I cant get a space reserved I'll come see you Tim!!

I chose December for this hunt due to all the browse and acorns we are getting this year from the rain-I didn't want an earlier hunt. Hearing that the acorns are scarce is music to my ears!
Chad and Mooney-sending you both p.m.'s!
holdin4horns-I look forward to meeting you, lets get together during the hunt! nice avatar btw
Tim-you might know my brother Frank(used to live in wimberly)?? Y'all might of catfished together at some point...

My daughter took her first deer in that park in 2017. Its a great park and there were some great deer numbers. As other Ive noted, cell service is only ok Im some parts of the park. (The staff can help you figure with spots)

That park will always have a special place in my heart, good luck!

Yes, Frank wanted to learn how to catfish so we went out a couple times. He caught on really quick! Has he caught many big ones over the last 10 years?

Tim, I understand your place is right next to Colorado Bend and had a question for you. My son drew the 11/6-7 GDE weekend. Not that we would or even have the option to change it but do you think hunting earlier in the season there would be an advantage or would it be better to be the later weekend with a better chance at some cooler weather?

Just curious and looking forward to hunting with my son in this park again.

Their is a hunt restriction that corn be labeled less than 20 parts per billion Aflatoxin. I forget where I bought corn when we hunted there a few years ago but I called United AG and Premium Deer corn that supplies Prasek's and Buc-ees and both of their's state 50 ppb.

Do any of you know where I can get corn that is labeled less than 20 ppb aflatoxin without me having to call every feed store in town

No sir, but they didn't check ours. I took sweet feed as well.

Edit, I picked up Record Rack corn from TSC since I wanted to get sweet feed for that hunt. I just looked and it says this. "Record Rack Deer Corn is also tested to guarantee aflatoxin levels are less than 20 PPB"

Good deal.....thank you. Looks like both Academy and Walmart sale corn labeled with 20 ppb as well.

I picked up some sweet feed to take also.....never used it before but hope it helps the deer find our area quicker.

Which sweet feed did you get for this hunt from TSC? I bought the purple bag as I read on here in a thread it contained more molasses than the brown bag.

Chad, we were in the very north part of 5. The property line on OnX is off by about 75 yards so we were not as close to the property line as this picture shows. Grass is pretty tall (knee high) and thick in a lot of the park this year and I think the deer would struggle to find corn as quick in those areas as in shorter grass. We had pretty easy setup in this spot as I could drive my truck right to it to drop off feed, blind, etc. We set up the blind (blue blind) where we could shoot a little over 100 yards down a road where the grass was beat down.

Ill email you the OnX waypoint this week so you have it for any future hunts.

Doesn't sound like the same place it used to be, I noticed the success rate in the draw stats has been going down last few years, used to always be 90-100% Anyone have any insight they have a die off or something in the area? We always used to put in there for GDE but switched to other places, still always put the kids in though but we've never drawn a deer permit there.

No idea, there are a ton of deer in the area and we saw a ton driving in and out. Hagen's tag was inked No. 64 last year and that was the week of Christmas. I also know they had taken around 15 deer in when we took Hagen's deer in to get "checked in" with 25 kids hunting that week. It's a cool hunt, if you ever get drawn. You'll enjoy it.

We saw plenty of deer driving around as well just not many when we were in the blind. But my son shot that buck at 3:30 and we gave it some time and went tracked it, found it, took pictures, drug it back to the truck in our sled and field dressed it so our area had quite a bit of activity in it during what should be prime time and we had only been in the blind 30 minutes prior to shooting.

Sunday morning a loose cow from the neighboring property spent most of the morning in our feed so not sure how much that affected the deer if any.

It is a beautiful park and a fun hunt and my sons will more than likely put in for it every year until they age out of being youth.

We might need to discuss pairing them up in the draw next year. Hagen is 10 and Id love to see H get drawn for the Bend again.

Grats to your son Rounder!! Heck of a nice buck-is this his first?
I took my daughter Izzy out a few weeks ago-in the same ground blinds, chairs, bipods etc we will be using in colorado bend to make sure we got it all worked out. I even pulled the cargo trailer to my brothers place in the hillcountry. She arrowed(cross bow) her first doe at 30 yrds! While she blood trailed it, she was laughing and crying at the same time. Lol. The monkey is off her back. She can't wait to get to colorado bend!!.... Bucks beware!
