Big Time Texas Hunts, 1

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Wildlife Restoration Program

Life’s short, Hunt Big—that’s the motto of Big Time Texas Hunts.

Big Time Texas Hunts is a drawing that we offer for some high quality guided hunting packages. We do it to raise money for support of our various wildlife conservation efforts including research, also to increase our public hunting opportunities throughout the state.

Linda Campbell is the program director for Private Lands and Public Hunting. The program, in its 13th year, offers hunters the chance to win one of seven exclusive hunting trips; the first hunt offered through the program was the Texas Grand Slam.

It’s still one of our most important offerings. That’s the opportunity to hunt the four premier big game species in Texas, including: desert bighorn sheep, pronghorn, mule deer, and white tail deer.

The deadline to enter is October 15, and it only costs ten dollars per entry. And you can enter as often as you like.

We have around 80-thousand total entries for all of the hunts per year. You know that’s a gross amount that we earn—several hundred thousand dollars every year to support our research and management of our game species.
