Coleto Creek’s bowhunts are rapidly approaching

SEGUIN -- Rangers at Coleto Creek are making plans for another successful bow hunting season. The Aug. 16, by noon deadline for submitting entries for this year’s Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority Coleto Creek Reservoir Bowhunt is rapidly approaching. The 16th annual bowhunt for white-tailed deer and feral hogs will take place from 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 Sept. 28-29, and ending on the weekend of Dec. 28-29. 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 that began in 1999 to help reduce the size of the deer herd have continued to grow beyond the carrying capacity of the reservoir’s lands. We also need to reduce the number of feral hogs that continue to increase in numbers and damage reservoir property. Each year the drawn hunters see a lot of deer,” said Reservoir Ranger and Hunt Coordinator Curtis Seiler.

This year, Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority is adding an additional 500-acre compartment to the existing 800 hunting acres. These compartments are managed by Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority around the reservoir, but not as 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 groups of up to eight per party. Each individual or group will be assigned a specific hunt area. The fee to hunt per weekend will be $150 per hunter.

To enter the random drawing for the hunts, send a postcard that includes a name, address, daytime phone number, email address, a list of all names in the hunting party (maximum of eight), preferred hunt dates, and hunt compartment. Each hunter may submit a postcard in his/her own name. Send to GBRA-Bowhunt, Coleto Creek Park, P.O. Box 68, Fannin, TX 77960. Each individual is limited to only one postcard entry. No email 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 U.S. 59.

For more information, contact Wilfred Korth, Chief Ranger, at the Coleto Creek Office at 361-575-6366, or email to coleto@gbra.org.
