Do you know when you’re lucky? Houston resident Kelly Hill does. He won the annual Big Time Texas Hunts grand slam package the very first time he entered.

06— I’ve heard that people have entered for several years and haven’t won it. So I know I’m a very lucky guy.

The Grand Slam gives one winner four separate guided Texas big game hunts: desert bighorn sheep, white-tailed deer, pronghorn and desert mule deer.

14—I’ve been on the whitetail hunt, and I’ve been on the mule deer hunt. And they were both absolutely amazing. I’m about to go on the desert big horned sheep [hunt], and then I think sometime in September or October is the [pronghorn] antelope.

The Texas grand slam is one of eight premium guided hunt packages offered in Parks and Wildlife’s Big Time Texas Hunts program.

19—If you were to actually go and pay for one of these hunts – they are very expensive. The fact that Texas Parks and Wildlife has coordinated with these properties that have opportunities to take one of these trophy animals – it’s amazing. And the fact that it’s nine bucks…nine bucks is a pretty cheap entry fee.

You can enter to win the Big Time Texas Hunts through October 15. Purchase entries online for $9 each or for $10 each by phone, mail or where you buy hunting licenses.

All proceeds from Big Time Texas Hunts benefit wildlife conservation, research and public hunting in Texas.
