From Texas Parks and Wildlife
-- Hunters hoping to take advantage of economical quality hunts on state-managed lands are reminded of upcoming application deadlines. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will be offering adult and youth only hunts by special drawing for a wide variety of species as part of its Public Hunting Program.
Applications for several hunt categories, including all alligator hunts Aug. 2. Archery only and crossbow hunts, pronghorn, and TPWD private lands hunts are due Aug. 9. All gun deer and youth deer hunt category applications must be received by Sept. 6.
Almost 5,500 hunters will be selected through random computer drawings allowing access to some of the state’s high-quality managed wildlife habitat. Through an application process, hunters can select from among 28 different hunt categories, including eight specifically for youth only, and choose a preferred hunt date and location from hunt areas stretching across the state.
Information and applications for Special Permit hunts are available online.
