If you are like me, then you probably wanted to remember to enter some of the draw hunts provided by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). And nothing would be more sweet than winning one of their Big Time Texas Hunts! So, pull out your Texas hunting bucket list and pony up for a chance to win the Big Time Texas Hunts, and check something off your list.
The TPWD is reminding all Texas hunters that the deadline to enter the 2010-11 Big Time Texas Hunts is just around the corner. October 15, to be exact. If you are one of the lucky Texas hunters picked, you will be called before the end of October and all of your hunting buddies will be quite jealous.
For those not familiar with the Big Time Texas Hunts, these “lotto” type hunts offer hunters a chance for Texans to experience the best hunting packages in the Lone Star State, with top-guided hunts that include food and lodging provided, as well as taxidermy in some cases. Of course, the most coveted jewel of the program is the Texas Grand Slam hunt package, which includes four separate hunts for Texas’ most prized big game animals — the desert bighorn sheep, white-tailed deer, mule deer and pronghorn antelope.
There are several quality whitetail hunting packages available, as well as opportunities to pursue alligator, exotic big game, waterfowl and upland game birds. If you want to put in a chance for these hunts it’s time to make your move, as time is running out!
Entries for the Big Time Texas Hunts are $9 if purchased online and $10 if purchased at a license retailer or over the phone at 800-895-4248. Purchasers must be 17 years of age or older and you can get more info about the hunts right here.
