Getting everything in line for my sons youth hunt at Colorado Bend State park in a couple of weeks and had a question on the orange hat.

Does it need/have to be a solid orange hat? I have a orange fronted hat with white mesh back from a pheasant hunt a couple of years ago and curious if that will work (along with an orange vest).

Thanks in advance.

I would say no. Should be visible orange from all sides. But that's not from the rule book. FWIW

Did anyone have any kids on the South Llano River SP hunt last week? Just curious on any results. My son will be on the one Jan 2-4.

Due to the length of the hunt access to the road over the dam is closed.

Nope, the only hunt that cant use the road over the dam is the E-postcard hunt.

I was just there last couple days squirrel hunting. You should do well. There is lots of flooded timber and ducks. Lots of woodies! Its a very nice property! I hadn't squirrel hunted in years but had a great time stomping around out there!

Send me a PM if you have any more questions i might can answer.

We did. Just 2 axis doe. The stand we hunted first had a real narrow shooting lane and the axis were real skittish. The stand we wanted was known as the acorn stand. It had 2 axis doe and a wt buck shot from it. We hunted the stand that is called the Tree Blind the first night and first morning. Every animal we did see crossed our lane really quick leaving no time to shoot. With seeing how skittish the animals were we went back to the check station mid day to see about moving blinds. We went and looked at a few but ultimately decided on blind 28. We were told it hadn't been hunted in any of the hunts. It was the highest point in the park, so we thought we would give it a shot hoping the animals would be a little less jumpy. Luckily it worked out and he shot the doe and buck the first sit in that blind about 3 hours apart.

I don't remember them even telling us there was a 28 on our hunt in December. At treeblind my BIL said that the alfalfa we put out would stop them, but yeah you had to be on them quick.

They actually called it 25 for some reason. But when we made it to the stand it was clearly labeled 28. Based off of the old stand setups it was previously 28 but he continued to call it 25 based off of the new stand setups. We put out alfalfa also. But the 2 axis we did see had no intentions on stopping for it.
