Hunt In: where my Elite takes me!
Default Hagerman NWR Hunt Segment B - November 19-21, 2021, Opening Thread

Note- Not Official or Associated with Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge

Iím looking forward to the hunt, nothing better than an Hagerman hunt.

In 2020, the staff used a GroupMe PC/mobile application to facilitate the check in/check out process. It actually worked well, except it turned into a chat session and overwhelmed the staff.

Iím proposing to utilize GroupMe for the Seg B hunt for unofficial purposes (not associated with Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge). This will be broadcasted to all hunters rather than trying to find cell numbers or manipulating pages of a TBH thread. This is basically a way for us hunters to communicate with each other during the hunt (a little like a virtual campfire). To participate in the GroupMe chat, you will need to provide the following:
App loaded on your device
PM me a Cell number, email address and Nickname/name
Iíll have handouts available during check in for non-TBH members

Iím not a help-desk, after mid-afternoon on Thursday I will not be available to assist, I have a hunt. I'd request all TBHrs have their information to me by Sunday 14 November.

Rules:
If you arenít a hunter in Seg B, do not sign up, if the numbers are in question, Iíll shut the group down.
Iím not going to moderate, Iím there to hunt! If someone is available to moderate, let me know.
If you wouldnít say it in church, donít post it
This will not replace updates to TBH, it will be a place for non-social media information.
I will cease to add/modify users mid-afternoon 18 November, better get in early.
If you donít want it copied and posted elsewhere- donít post it (location, pics, etc)
I will make available flyers that will be handed out Thursday during check in with what information I need to enroll.
Again, mid-afternoon on Thursday I will convert from enroller, to the hunter.
The app will be locked and unavailable Monday 22 November.

My thoughts on what will be acceptable:
Anyone lose a glove?
Look alive, just had 3 stroll through
Need some help tracking
Anyone have a cart
Durn e-bikes
Who has a blue cooler
Weather doesnít look good this afternoon, tomorrow is better

My thoughts on what will NOT be acceptable
Anything sexual, racial, etc
Any issues with the Hagerman staff, check in, antlerless incentive, 13Ē, etc
Complaints with another hunter, parking, stand location

Looking forward to the HUNT!

Thanks for organizing. Sent you my info.

I’m planning to go scout this weekend. Coming from Austin and it’s my first trip to Hagerman . Are there trees straight enough for a climber or should I plan on sticks + lock-on stand? I guess I’ll find out when I scout but curious if others have experience.

Thanks for organizing Doug, great idea!

Paul, there maybe a few trees that you could use a climber but they are few and far between from what I have seen. Sticks + stand or ground blind is way to go

There are plenty of trees straight enough for a climber. Although I am officially retired from climbers.

I have a PM from CodyPatt1 and CrossTimbers, Paul- none from you, you may not have enough posts to send a PM yet. I'll PM you my cell and we can exchange information.

I'd like to try a test this weekend, just to ensure my requested info is correct. Validate you have the app loaded on your device.

If you are referencing the GroupMe, it's relatively simple, I'd be willing to coach someone through it. What I am dreading is the non-TBHrs that I will need to add Thursday afternoon.

For those of you that have hunted the H since the started the drive-thru only check in process, how long did that take and what time should we expect to show up, checkin, and still have time to be at the unit gates when they open at 9?

There will be some jackazz that doesnít have everything ready or doesnít have everything they need and want to debate about it. Said person is usually directly in front of me.

I've hunted lots of Federal Land, but Hagerman is the only one I've saw that required a "bowhunter ed" class.
