2010 Premium Buck Hunt Winner

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

This is Passport to Texas…

Last year at this time, Steve Poskey of Lufkin did what he always does: he bought entries in Texas Parks and Wildlife’s annual Big Time Texas Hunts drawing.

03—I’m not sure what year they first started this, but I’ve been doing it for a long time.

Although winning eluded him, Steve continued to buy entries for hunt packages, including the White-tailed Bonanza, Texas Grand Slam, and the Premium Buck Hunt.

03—I just felt like I was supporting a good cause, you know.

In 2010, Lady Luck smiled on Steve, when he received a phone call telling him he had won the Premium Buck Hunt.

09—I said, would say that one more time, ma’am? And she repeated it, and I remember exactly what I told her; I said, you’re joking, right? And she said, no sir, I’m not joking.

We would never joke about a thing like that, Steve.

Online entries are $9 each with a $5 processing fee, and $10 when purchased at a license retailer, by mail, or by phone. Entries available through October 15.

02—It was a fantastic experience.
