Find a place to hunt on over one million acres of publicly accessible land located throughout Texas. Hunt areas include property owned by TPWD acreage leased by the department from other state and federal agencies, forest products industries, and other cooperating private landowners.


Annual Public Hunting Permit
The Annual Public Hunting Permit (also known as walk-in) provides nearly year-round hunting on nearly one million acres of land. Hunt white-tailed deer, feral hogs, dove, quail, turkey, waterfowl, rabbit, squirrel and more on more than 180 hunting areas, including wildlife management areas, state parks and approximately 120 dove and small game areas leased from private landowners.



Drawn Hunts
The Public Hunt Drawing System provides opportunities to apply for a wide variety of supervised, drawn hunts including special drawings for both adults and youth hunters.
Additionally, TPWD offers E-Postcard selection hunts and special hunt package drawings for exotic wildlife and quality native animals on TPWD managed lands as well as specially leased private properties.



Regular (Daily) Permit Hunts
A Regular Permit is available for certain small game and waterfowl hunts. Regular permits are issued at the hunt area on a first-come first-served basis.
