Texas Will Accept Only Online Applications For Public Hunts

AUSTIN (June 11, 2014) Hunters who are eager to apply for the state's public hunt drawings won’t need to fill out forms by hand any longer because the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says it will only accept online applications for the popular hunting packages.

The new system will allow hunters to browse the drawn hunt catalog by hunt category and location using interactive maps, as well as complete the application and pay online, a Parks and Wildlife statement said.

Selected applicants will be notified by email and can accept permits and pay any fees online.

Permits will be issued by email and can be printed at home or stored on a mobile device.

Applicants not selected may still enter a secondary drawing if any permits are unclaimed by the payment deadline.

The new system will begin accepting applications in July for 2014-2015 hunts.
