SEGUIN -- Rangers at Coleto Creek are making plans for another successful bowhunting season. The deadline for submitting entries for this year’s Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA)-Coleto Creek Reservoir Bowhunts is noon on Friday, Aug. 19. The 14th annual bowhunt for white-tailed deer and feral hogs will take place October through December.

The bowhunts are restricted to the use of archery equipment and will be held on 14 consecutive weekends beginning on the weekend of Oct. 1-2, and ending on the weekend of Dec. 30-Jan. 1. On the first weekend of archery season, legal hunting is only allowed on Saturday and Sunday. For the remaining weekends, hunters selected by random drawing will be allowed to pre-scout and begin hunting assigned areas on Friday of their hunting weekend, and continue through Sunday.

“These yearly hunts, begun in 1999, are utilized to help reduce the size of the deer herd that has continued to grow beyond the carrying capacity of the reservoir’s lands, and to reduce the numbers of feral hogs that continue to increase in numbers and damage reservoir property. Each year the drawn hunters see a lot of deer,” said GBRA Reservoir Ranger and Hunt Coordinator Curtis Seiler.

The annual hunt takes place on more than 800 acres managed by GBRA around the reservoir, but not a part of the Coleto Creek Park. Hunters will be allowed to harvest two antlerless deer and an unlimited number of feral hogs. Hunters may apply for the hunts individually or as a group with a maximum of four people per party. Each individual or group will be assigned a specific hunt area. The fee to hunt per weekend will be $120 per hunter.

To enter the random drawing for the hunts, send a 3.5” X 5.5” postcard that includes a name, address, daytime phone number, e-mail address, and names of those in the hunting party (maximum of four). Each hunter may submit a postcard in his/her own name. Please note preferred hunting date(s) and send to GBRA-Bow Hunt, Coleto Creek Park, P.O. Box 68, Fannin, TX 77960. Each individual is limited to only one postcard entry. No e-mail entries will be accepted. Only those applicants drawn will be notified of the results of the annual draw. Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority’s Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir is located between Victoria and Goliad, off of U.S. 59.

For more information, contact Curtis Seiler or Wilfred Korth at 361-575-6366 or e-mail cseiler@gbra.org.
