South Texas is blessed with prime territory for those who like to hunt and fish. Outdoorsmen from all over the state journey southward to take advantage of our location. For the 2019-20 season, hunting and fishing licenses are now on sale, with many set to expire on Aug. 31.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is instituting a new “expedited checkout” to speed the process of re-purchasing the same license, like the popular Super Combo license for hunting and all-water fishing ($68) or the Senior Super Combo ($32 for Texans 65 or older). This year TPWD has also made it easier to show proof-of-license. From now on, hunters and anglers can use an electronic image of their license as proof-of-license and show/display it in an electronic photo of your license, an emailed receipt or via your account within the license point-of-sale system, the Outdoor Annual App or the My Texas Hunt Harvest App (for hunters).
You still have to have a physical license for any activities requiring tags and the physical federal duck stamp for waterfowl hunting.
Hunters and anglers in Texas buy more than 2.4 million hunting and fishing licenses annually. Licenses can be purchased online, by phone or in person at more than 50 state parks and at over 1,700 retailers across the state.
