There isn’t any mature bucks out there. It will be 8-10yrs before there will be anything to shoot there besides doe and spikes. I hope. I body puts in during this time to give the place a chance to recover.

I for one like to see it the way it is regarding standby's.

I went down for the management hunt when they were going to draw something like 10 cards or 15 people which ever came first. Well due to some cards have 3 names on them they only drew 7 or 8 cards when they hit the number of 15. A LOT of us went home...it's the breaks.

For most people it takes years to draw this hunt. When I draw, I don't want to see an additional 20 people added as a standby and reducing the compartment size and adding to the traffic on the place.

I drew the bow hunt on the Daughtrey two years ago after 9 years of applying. They drew one SB card and sent about 10 people home. They knew the risk, same as when I drew Matagorda island the same year. One card, 5 boats went home.

I might be alone in this but we all know the risk when we make the long drive for a standby.

You're not alone bud. I have made the drive only to leave at 11:05. many times, mostly at Chap. But I have also been picked a couple times.

Wow! Here it is January 2. Looking back through a bazillion messages I found 3 WT Deer harvest pics for this year (all hunts combined). I saw lots of pics of meals, blind set-ups, deer that were "passed" somebody pumping gas, tracks on the ground where an animal used to be and campsites.
Congrats to "Trophybowhunter", "Zapatahorn" and "LVHunter" on their success and photos.
Did anyone else photograph their trophy, or is this place just that "over rated"?

You don't have to have an account to see the Chap page. I'm not on facebook and can see them. https://www.facebook.com/ChaparralWMA . An irritating box pops up every now and then wanting you to join, but just hit 'not now' and proceed.

Plus, all harvested chap bucks can be seen here:

although it doesn't look like they've added the 3 BTTH deer yet (can be seen on the facebook page though).

Cool! Thanks for the link.
Several pretty nice bucks taken. I was happy to see so many of the youth with their trophies (including a couple of very nice bucks)
