Is it worth going? Any tips for a new comer? Success rates look horrible.

I got selected. This will be my first year going. Any tips would be much appreciated. From what I知 seeing, it looks like you need a ground blind? Trees don稚 look big enough for a portable lock-on? Other than map scouting, I値l definitely be down there early on the 27th and may go the 21.

I知 seriously not joking you need to take the mosquitoes very serious. Definitely recommend a quality bug suit, thermacell and other products to deter these guys. With out a doubt top priority!
You really need to try and find a light weight tripod around 10-12 tall. 90% of the trees aren稚 big enough BUT a lot of the underbrush/grass is to tall for a ground blind. I found a tree last year big enough to hang a stand in but it was one of very few.
It 鉄HOULDNT be as wet as last year but we still have a month. Last year was HORRIBLE 90% of the place was under water. Secret was to find some semi-dry ground and the acorns. If it starts raining invest in some good hip boots. Watch out for water moccasins, LOTS of them. Whatch out for alligators, no I知 not kidding stay away from pond edges there are some dinosaurs out there. If you can kill a doe, kill it! Anything off this place is a trophy! There痴 a lot of game on the place but no baiting and the terrain makes it a tough hunt. I saw a very nice 120-130 class buck but never could get him to close the distance. In fact I saw deer every day I hunted and ended up killing a spike and a pig.
Good luck!

Second year in a row I don’t get drawn. Haha

We got drawn 3 years ago and it was a tough deer hunt. My group killed 8 pigs and saw 2 deer. My buddy and I were stalking a field and a buck about 120”-130” came out about 50 yards from us. I’m not big on deer so I told my buddy shoot em. He got buck fever and didn’t move. Deer walked off.

Was cold and wet during our hunt. Good luck y’all.

So Aransas is a draw hunt now? I went for 20+ years in late 90s and early 2000s and know the place well. Everything I read above is great advise. It is as tuff of a hunt you’ll ever go on and is dangerous. How many do they draw? Used to be open to the public - went from 600 to 700 hunters back in late 70s and 80s down to 150 the last I went in 2009. Bucks die of old age there - there are some big ones there. Good luck. Skeeters are the most challenging obstacle at Aransas. Oh and the heat and the water the hard to find the right spot to set up in.

There are some hot spots to avoid but for the most part it痴 not congested at all. The first weekend will have the highest attendance usually around 150-200 show up and throughout the week it gets down into the 50s. A lot of new people going to see what it痴 about then quickly realizing it痴 a pretty tough hunt and backing their stuff up the first Sunday. Mostly due to the mosquitoes.

Tyler is right, definitely plan on combating mosquitoes, i took two thermacells and has sprayed everything down with Stewarts and it was not too bad, cottonmouths everywhere. I had good luck out of a tripod, had a 12' but it was a little tall, will be taking a 6' down to LANWR this year.
It is a tough hunt but very fulfilling, good luck!

I was down there for 5 days at last years hunt. It was the most miserable fun hunt i had been on in TX. Was hoping to go again this year, but no dice. It was VERY wet, we got some bad weather, and Cosway is right about the mosquitoes, no joke!
I suggest soaking your clothes in permethrin and running at least 1 if not 2 thermacells, and mosquito face mask. Walking to and from truck was the worst for mosquitoes and it would take a good half hour to kill all those *******s that got inside the truck.
I used my saddle, and was able to find some trees that were good enough to get me 12 up. (And the mosquitoes were a little better at that altitude). The landscape varies so be prepared with ground blind, hang on (saddle), tripod.
We caught some bad weather early and it made it a very soggy trek, and the roads went to crap pretty quick. Lots of folks got stuck. The conditions (mosquitoes) cleared out the number of hunters pretty quick. I think after the first day of the hunt the campground went from full to about 20%.
It was a long hard hunt, but would go back again. I finally patterned a bedding area the day before i had to leave, wish I had had one more day.

I donated a lot of blood at that place in 1986 with some high school buddies. Sleeping in the roadside ditch waiting on the gate to open at 4:30 a.m..........None of us have gone back! Good luck to those of you going out!

Whats the general outlook on weather for this year? I saw the forecast was calling for rain. I am an hour and half above it and plan on being down there for the 21st and 22nd for scouting to see how it looks then. Planned on packing in my rubber boots and normals though.

Also for those who didn稚 get out an scout this weekend, Burgentine lake road is pretty rough after the ConocoPhillips HQ on the map. So if you are in a car either be careful or avoid it. It痴 got some wicked pot holes.

Thank you for the heads up! I have a Chevy 4x4 but no lift yet so we will see. I知 headed down Thursday afternoon and will be tent camping at Goose Island SP. Plan to get up early Friday morning and scout all day, hopefully will find 1 spot for my hang-on stand if not I値l be tucking up in the brush. Not expecting to kill anything on this hunt based on what I致e heard and seen in the past posts, but it痴 opening weekend so I知 just happy to be able to hunt in a new terrain with my bow in hand and enjoying the outdoors! I値l be there hunting Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Good luck to everyone and be safe!

I would call ahead and double check, but I知 99% sure you can稚 scout on Friday. The only scouting days were the 21st and 22nd. You shouldn稚 need a lift kit unless you go in the holes though. I did fine with my standard 1500 and I don稚 have 4 wheel drive either.

I was there for the rifle last year in December. Waited for mid week to let the crowds thin. Think I only saw one other truck out there, but alot of the roads were completely underwater and they were bringing belly dumps of caliche the entire time fixing roads. Only saw 5 hogs, and three gators.

Dang, my bad then. Ill have to look at that again and come down on Friday. I saw a decent amount of flags on everything from the main road to the conoco hq. I took the right to keep going down Burgentine road(I think, the road that leads to the edge by the water) and there seemed to be way less down there as a reference point. Took me a good 20-30 minutes to drive out from back there though so it should help with limiting the amount of guys.

Thank you for advice and update. Yeah, there will probably be a lot of hunters near the private property border at the entrance since there may be corn feeders going off. Not a bad plan, but I知 not going to fight all the others for that spot. I just hope we aren稚 all sitting in the rain hunting! Then also the roads may get bad too.

If it rains I am either gonna see if I can borrow my FIL's truck since it has 4 wheel drive or I am gonna be busting out the waders to get off the road. My ram does terrible off road when it gets wet with my all season tires so I wont be playing around with that.

Just as an FYI for those who didn稚 scout, google maps and onyx are way off on what ground conditions look like. Was gonna meet up with another member while we scouted and what was supposed to be a service rod turned into the thickest crap to get turned around in. Thought the opening was only 20-40 yards away and that was not the case.

Mosquitos went that bad out today either.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

Saw a 6pt early this morning at 30 yards before rain hit. I had sprayed a ton of bug spray on my neck, head, face ...so of course the contact lense in my right eye goes blurry from bug spray dripping down from forehead as I知 drawing back. Couldn稚 see anything, eased arrow back down. Wind was in my favor so he never spooked. Also saw two does out of range earlier this evening so far. The cloud cover today is nice, it was hot scouting Friday!

Not sure where the official kill board is, but I was looking at the cooler and butchering set up and noticed on the paper that as of 1:30 1 buck, 1 doe, and 1 hog had been taken.

I had 1 doe at 7 yards I never even noticed because I was looking through brush for some hogs I was hearing. I only noticed her because she eventually started blowing and took off running.
