VICTORIA, Texas – Registration is now open for the 2020 GBRA Bowhunt at Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir. Participants must register by noon Friday, August 28, 2020.
The bowhunts are available on weekends from October 3, 2020, to January 3, 2021, and are restricted to the use of archery equipment only. The fee for each hunter is $185 per weekend.
Legal hunting is allowed only on Saturday and Sunday for the first weekend of archery season. For the remaining weekends, hunters selected by random drawing are allowed to pre-scout and begin hunting their assigned areas on the Friday of their hunting weekend.
