Public Hunt Drawings




Start making plans for the upcoming hunting season - apply for Drawn Hunts now. The Public Hunt Drawing System provides opportunities to apply for a wide variety of high-quality hunts across the state, including special drawings for both adults and youth hunters. The online system is now accepting applications, and the first hunt category deadline is only 1 month away.

The first application deadline is August 1. Application deadlines are on the 1st and 15th of each month, with the last deadline on November 1. Drawings are usually held the following business day. E-Postcard Hunts and US Forest Service Antlerless Deer Permits require a 2020-21 Annual Public Hunting Permit to apply and will be available beginning August 15.

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 22)

GOOD. Water slightly stained; 75 degrees; 0.19 feet above pool. Water level still above normal pool, with eleven flood gates open and still more water coming down from up north. Bass are good in 1-20 feet of water hitting your favorite way to fish. There was a big bass tournament this past weekend and there was four bass over 10 pounds caught. Shallow fish coming on spinnerbaits and chatterbaits and little top water baits for the first couple of hours in the morning. Then you can pick up a shallow running crankbait and Texas rig and fish from 8-12 feet. The next depth is from 14-20 feet, these fish coming on big crankbaits and Carolina rigs. The crappie fishing is just fair due to the current running in the lake. There are some crappie shallow, around docks, but most are running from 12-18 feet. Report by Stephen Johnston, Johnston Fishing.
