Reminder: Deer Season Opener Nov. 5

Are you ready?

Texas’ general deer season opener begins Nov. 5. Special Youth Season begins Oct. 29. Indicators point to excellent prospects because of good habitat conditions across the state, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife officials. Parts of East Texas that experienced flooding may be the only exception.

“These favorable range conditions will put deer in top body condition this year and antler quality should be above average,” says Alan Cain, TPWD White-Tailed Deer Program Leader. Check the Outdoor Annual for current regulations and information.

New CWD Regulations

Hunters taking mule deer, white-tailed deer, or elk within the Trans-Pecos and Panhandle CWD Zones must bring their animals to a check station within 24 hours.  Read the new booklet on Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) for details. It contains all you should know about CWD regulations.

Also, the My Texas Hunt Harvest app is a handy tool for finding CWD check stations and test results, as well as reporting your harvest. It’s free, and available for Apple and Android phones.
