Hunters looking for a cheap way to secure equipment for their deer lease now have an opportunity to make some bargain purchases.

From Sept. 10 through Sept. 21, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is holding an online auction of surplus property, with items located throughout the state.

According to Greg Nash, the lead maintenance specialist at Guadalupe River State Park, items will often be sold at a good price, but sometimes bidders get a little carried away.

“I’ve seen some things go for cheaper than I thought they should, and some go for more expensive than they should,” he said. “It’s just the nature of the auction.”

Items included in the auction are dozens of vehicles, a tractor, an ATV and deer feeders. Those interested do not have to bid sight-unseen.

“People can come out and look at the item,” Nash said. “We have a certain time frame set up for people to come out and look.”

Sept. 18 from 8 a.m. to noon, and then 1 to 3 p.m. is the preview time. TPWD employees and family members are not allowed to bid in the auction.
