Laguna Atascosa NWR Archery Hunt

My teenage son and I drew an archery hunt at Laguna Atascosa through TP&W for November 17-21. Has anyone been on this hunt before and have advice for us? My plan is to focus our efforts on his chances. Thank you in advance!

Lots of wide open land. Best to get in early and scout. You will most likely have to stalk after you spot them. Lot and Lots of walking but a good hunt.

Yes 17-21. Scout 4th. I am planning on using a bike and may get a pull cart for it. This one is pricey but would haul a lot of meat. https://www.amazon.com/Tipke-The-Bik...6G6F4DXAT8D3EV
I could use it around the house too.

I went last December. I was in your same predicament. There isn't hardly any info on the web about the place. The locals have been hunting it for years and have done a fantastic job at keeping it quiet. The road on the way to the place was absolute garbage i mean it looks like it was used as a bombing range. Once there, the place is MASSIVE. If you have time to go about I would definitely take advantage of it just so you at least have an idea off what the place looks like. It's a refuge so there are animals everywhere some units hold more than others. Its hard to explain over this text with a cell phone. As mentioned earlier lots of walking so have a broke in pair of comfy snake boots. I had a fat tire bike that was useless after it rained because the sand caked up in every moving part. I was able to rattle in a few decent deer but want able to draw on them. The nilgai went nocturnal due to the pressure. Find fresh dung piles and tracks/ signs. Once you see it you'll understand what I'm talking about. Long story but I tracked a giant buck on day 5 just by following his tracks and it jumped out of the brush 10yards in front of me. I was not ready for it and well yeah I almost cried because of shear exhaustion. Not much sleep and long days. If you have a couple days to scout use one to just explore the refuge then one to learn a unit or two. You will learn soooo much on your hunt. I went alone and enjoyed every minute of it. I found a dead buck skull that was a 12 point that was 150+". I had close encounters with deer hogs and had a nilgai cow at 50 yards. If you have any questions let me know. I haven't really ever posted on 2cool but I'll check back here in the days to come.

So you were not able to take any animals? Is it worth a 6 hr drive if you don't have the chance to scout before hand?
