Deadlines near for public hunt drawings
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, are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2. Archery only and crossbow hunts, pronghorn, and TPWD private lands hunts are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9. All gun deer and youth deer hunt category applications must be received by 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6.
During the upcoming hunting seasons, 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.
