This is Passport to Texas

Big Time Texas Hunts offers entrants a chance to win any of eight premium hunt packages on some of the finest private ranches and prime wildlife management areas in the state.

09 —We bill it as once in a lifetime type of hunts. [We have] Really great hunting packages for deer, and birds, and waterfowl, alligator…

Linda Campbell is program director for Private Lands and Public Hunting at Parks and Wildlife.

13 — These are fully guided hunts, and so everything is provided: lodging and food; all the guiding is also provided. You just have to get yourself to the location. But other than that – everything is taken care of, including the taxes on the hunt, itself.

Each hunt package is a different drawing; enter as many of the drawings as many times as you like. Entries cost $9 online or $10 by phone, mail or at retail locations where you buy licenses. Deadline to enter is October 15.

Some Big Time Texas Hunt packages permit winners to bring along a friend.

16— The Whitetail Bonanza, for example. The Exotic Safari – you can bring hunting companions with you. The Grand Slam, which is the hunt for the premier big game animals in Texas – pronghorn, big horn sheep, mule deer and whitetail – you can bring a non-hunting companion on that one.

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

We record our series at The Block House in Austin, Texas and Joel Block engineers our program.
