Hunting for the perfect Christmas gift?
Have a youth age 13-16 that wants to go bowhunting… for FREE!?
For a $20 raffle chance, they can win a FREE hunt Jan 19-21, 2018 for deer and hogs at the famous Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge on the south side of Lake Texoma. This is the “holy grail” for most bowhunters in North Texas because Hagerman has limited access for hunting, and is known for producing monster bucks (and hogs)!
We partnered up with the Texas Youth Hunting Program (www.tyhp.org) to sponsor access for 6 youth hunters (note: the youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Time frame is Friday afternoon thru noon Sunday, during which there will be three hunt sessions. Hunting will be done from popups blinds, and the group will tent-camp on the Refuge. This is a mentored, educational hunt, conducted by TYHP. TYHP provides meals, guides, educational activities, and a very memorable experience! TYHP is excited to partner with Texans Archery Club on this hunt – normal fee for a TYHP hunt is $150; raffle winners will have their hunt fee paid by TAC.

Winners will be announced the week after Christmas, and will receive instructions on registration details.

In order to maximize chances of successfully taking game animals with a bow, the Huntmaster has established the following ground rules for this hunt: 1. Minimum age is 13 and maximum age is 16 due to Youth-Only season regulations applying to this hunt. 2. Compound Bows only, with minimum draw weight of 40 lbs. 3. Hunters should be able to shoot 25 yards accurately with fixed-blade broadheads on arrows (mechanical broadheads not allowed) 4. In addition to the standard shooting proficiency test required by TYHP, the hunter must pass an additional proficiency test using broadhead-tipped arrows. 5. The hunter must complete the online portion of the International Bowhunter Education Program (IBEP) Bowhunter Education course (see www.bowhunter-ed.com) prior to the hunt. We will conduct the Field Day portion and Final Exam during the hunt weekend, completing the IBEP certification. Parents are welcome to do this as well! These additional ground rules are in place to ensure the hunter has appropriate equipment and is proficient in using it – we want to set you up for Success!
