The general mule deer season starts Nov. 17 in the Panhandle and Southwestern Panhandle and Nov. 23 in the Trans-Pecos. If you plan to hunt mule deer in Briscoe, Childress, Cottle, Floyd, Hall or Motley counties, there is a new experimental antler regulation. The outside spread of the main beams of a harvested mule deer must be at least 20 inches. The goal is to protect young bucks, and this decision was based on years of harvest data.
With the first sightings last week of iconic, endangered whooping cranes along the Texas coast, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is reminding Texans to be on the lookout for these impressive birds as they move through the state.
The larger acreage transfer marks a major milestone in the multimillion-dollar project. TPWF has now completed several of the goals it set out as part of this collaboration with multiple conservation partners, including completing initial work to restore thousands of acres of native coastal prairie, raising an endowment for continued habitat management, and placing a conservation easement on the property.
Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) is proud to announce its collaboration with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) this hunting season in an effort to promote adult hunter recruitment in our great state.
