From Staff Reports
AUSTIN — Break out your hunting “bucket list” and enter the Big Time
Texas Hunts for a chance to check something off. The Texas Parks and
Wildlife Department is reminding Texas hunters the deadline to enter
this year’s Big Time Texas Hunts is Oct. 15. Winners will be called
before the end of October to give them time to make their hunting trip
The Big Time Texas Hunts offer hunters a chance to experience the
best hunting packages in the Lone Star State with an opportunity to win
one or more top guided hunts with food and lodging provided, as well as
taxidermy in some cases.
Big Time Texas Hunts generates hundreds of thousands of dollars each
year, with proceeds dedicated to providing more public hunting
opportunity and to funding wildlife conservation and research programs
The crown jewel of the program is the Texas Grand Slam hunt package,
which includes four separate hunts for Texas’ most prized big game
animals — the desert bighorn sheep, white-tailed deer, mule deer and
pronghorn antelope. There are several quality whitetail hunt packages
available, as well as opportunities to pursue alligator, exotic big
game, waterfowl and upland game birds.
Entries for the Big Time Texas Hunts are $9 if purchased online and
$10 if purchased at a license retailer or over the phone at
800-895-4248. Online purchases will include a $5 convenience charge per
transaction, meaning hunters can buy as many entries as they wish online
for one low fee. There is no limit to the number of entries an
individual may purchase. Purchasers must be 17 years of age or older.
