ATTENTION Texas Hunters!!!
« on: February 19, 2018, 03:53:48 PM »
This furnished by GTA member Tritium (Thurmond):

Important announcement for Texas Airgun Hunters:

 I just got an excited phone call from Willie Sims who had just got off the phone with Alan Cain (Texas Parks and Wildlife Whitetail Deer Team Leader)

Texas is taking public comments on proposed rule changes here: https://tpwd.texas.gov/business/feedback/public_comment/proposals/201803_statewide_whitetailed_deer.phtml

Go make your comments now and in as great a number as possible.

Guys we are talking all non-migratory game animals and birds. Quail hunting with an airgun. Deer, Fur bearers. I am stoked.

Lets make this happen.

Thanks to Willie who followed up on this with Alan and Special thanks to Eric Henderson of Adventures Afield who accompanied Alan on the special research harvest plus loaning him a 308 Texan to use for the research.

Here is the latest from the Texas Wildlife website. I just did a quick look at their site and see they have rescinded the previous change and will readdress the subject in the August meeting.

https://tpwd.texas.gov/newsmedia/releases/?req=20180524b&nrtype=hunt&nrspan=2018&nrsearch=air

"After re-evaluating a proposal that would permit the use of air guns and arrow guns to take certain game animals, game birds, alligators, and furbearers, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission has rescinded the previous rule they adopted in March and has requested staff to modify their recommendations and propose new rules to be considered by the Commission at their next scheduled meeting in August."
