Hunting, fishing licenses go on sale Aug. 15

AUSTIN -- Current year Texas hunting and fishing licenses (except year-to-date fishing licenses) expire Aug. 31, and new licenses for 2011-12 will go on sale beginning Monday, Aug. 15.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) issues about 2.1 million hunting and fishing licenses annually through the agency’s 28 field offices, more than 65 state parks, and at more than 1,500 retailers across Texas. For a $5 administrative transaction fee, licenses may also be purchased online through the TPWD website or by telephone at 1-800-895-4248. Call center hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A transaction receipt may be printed at the time of purchase for online orders, and a confirmation number is provided for phone orders. The physical license is mailed separately. Confirmation numbers will verify that a license has been purchased, which is sufficient for dove hunting, but will not allow hunters to take fish or wildlife that require a tag.

Fishing license exemptions

Recently, the Legislature created an exception for fishing licenses. In addition to allowing the public to fish at state parks without a license, resident fishers born prior to Jan. 1, 1931, are exempt from purchasing a state fishing license. These senior anglers are free to fish any state water body without purchasing the required annual license. Resident anglers 65 and older qualify for reduced-price fishing and hunting licenses.

Bird hunting requirements

In addition to a hunting license, all wing shooters will need to purchase a game bird stamp. To hunt dove or teal in September, a Migratory Game Bird Stamp ($7) is required. Duck hunters also need to purchase a Federal Duck Stamp and receive Harvest Information Program (HIP) certification.

HIP certification involves a brief survey of the previous year’s hunting success and is conducted at the time licenses are purchased. Certification will be printed on the license. Lifetime license holders must also be HIP-certified and purchase the Federal Duck Stamp to hunt migratory birds. All other state stamp endorsements are included with a lifetime license.

There are other mandatory endorsements to consider at the time of purchase, too. An Upland Game Bird Stamp ($7) is required to hunt all non-migratory game birds, including turkey, quail, pheasant, chachalaca, and lesser prairie chicken.

Of course, anyone who purchases the Super Combo license package, the best bang for the buck at $68, automatically gets these needed stamps. Sportsmen ages 65 and older qualify for a discounted Senior Super Combo for $32. Duck hunters will still need to purchase a Federal Duck Stamp.
