TPWD Announces Big Time Texas Hunts Winners

Fourteen lucky winners will participate in dream hunts

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department announced the 14 lucky winners of this year’s Big Time Texas Hunts drawing.

According to officials, hunters bought 94,705 Big Time Texas Hunt entries. Sales generated more than $871,644, which helps support wildlife research, habitat management and public hunting.

“We are extremely excited about the results this year,” said Justin Dreibelbis, TPWD Private Lands and Public Hunting Program Director. “Not only that we are able to send 14 people and their friends and family on hunts of a lifetime, but through the generosity of hunters around the country we were able to raise important conservation dollars for wildlife habitat and public hunting projects on public lands in Texas.”

This year’s winner of the Texas Grand Slam hunting package, Greg May of Amarillo, is making plans for four separate guided hunts for the state’s top four premier big game species – desert bighorn sheep, white-tailed deer, pronghorn and mule deer.

Other category winners include:

Ultimate Mule Deer Hunt – Rod Rodriguez, Austin

Nilgai Antelope Safari – Craig McCallum, Rockwall

Premium Buck Hunt – Brooks Smith, Houston

Exotic Safari – Melvin Dennard, Friendswood

Whitetail Bonanza – Stewart Brandon, Sandia; Daniel Schuch, Leander; Thomas Becker, New Braunfels; Audion Hubenak, Rock Island; Thomas Riley, Granbury
