Black Gap WMA Trail is a 1.7 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Big Bend National Park, Texas that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from October until March.
Black Gap WMA is over 100,000 acres just east of Big Bend National Park. The Texas Parks & Wildlife manages the area, and usually has public drawings for hunting deer and javalina. Quail hunting is on a first come basis. Hunting is by assignment compartment.
I have been drawn to hunt deer several times. In the late 1950's, I have been drawn most every year I applied. Recently, as more people learned of it, it has become pretty hard to get drawn.
Two of my grandsons have been drawn for youth javalina hunts.
