AUSTIN – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department announced the 14 lucky winners of this year’s Big Time Texas Hunts selected at random from entries in the drawing.

All told, hunters bought over 79,000 Big Time Texas Hunt entries during this year’s sales period, which ran May 15-Oct. 15. More than $737,000 in gross sales were generated and proceeds from the drawing go to support wildlife research, habitat management and public hunting.

This year’s winner of the Texas Grand Slam hunting package, Ed Bredemeyer of San Antonio, 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.

“I told my wife this is the gift that keeps on giving, kind of like the jelly of the month club,” said Bredemeyer, who noted he has been entering the Big Time Texas Hunts for about 10 years. “I bought chances in other categories, too. I’ve been involved with hunting and conservation for years and the way I see it, if it’s good for wildlife, it’s good for me. I like supporting the people that support wildlife.”

Following are the winners of this year’s Big Time Texas Hunts.
