The most popular offering is the Texas Grand Slam. One lucky winner will pursue 4 prime big game animals: desert bighorn sheep, mule deer, pronghorn and white-tailed deer. With only two to three bighorn sheep hunting permits offered a year, this winner joins an exclusive group of hunters.

And this year, the Big Time Bird Hunt now offers 3 unique trips for Bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkey and dove. Previous winner James May said, “The only thing that would keep you from harvesting your limit was your shooting ability.” Other prime packages available for the winning include hunts for wild boar, white-tailed deer, gators, waterfowl and exotics.
