UPDATED: AUGUST 26, 2019 WDFW finally killed the last of the OPT pack after 29, yes 29 depredations. I do believe it was time. I don't know all the legal restrictions the director faces. There are those that just do not care what damage the wolves do, and they have managed to get judges to impose rules that ties our hands, and restricts responsible management. Big Game Draws - Texas applications for Gun Deer - either sex , and National Refuge deer are due september 15th Of the categories due on this date, these two catch my eye for several reasons. Some are late, some offer trophy potential, some offer multiple animals including exotics, and some are high success.
You can hunt about anything in Texas. Applications date deadlines begin in August and are due the 1st and 15th in August , September, and October. Application fees and licences (if you draw) are less expensive than most states. The other plus is a lot of hunt dates are in the dead of winter when a trip to a warmer climate is welcome. The website shows hunter success, and some categories include other species as well. Stay tuned for dates as they become due.
Montana apllications for points are due by September 30th Cathy and I have drawn 5 hunts this year in 3 different states. Four of those with points. Wyoming point applications are due Oct 31st Kind of like buying a great hunt on the time payment plan. Wyoming give a percentage to the high point holders. True preference, so unlike states with only bonus points, eventually you will draw
Coming up---The disabled shoot at Miller Ranch. Hope to see you there
