Potential Deer Regulations

News Release:

AUSTIN, Texas - In a briefing of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission's Regulations Committee, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department unveiled an extensive suite of potential regulation changes in deer harvest throughout much of the state. The department will be gathering public input on the possible proposals during the next couple of months and present to the commission in January a comprehensive set of proposals.

Those proposals will then go back out for official comment during a series of public hearings around the state next spring. A final decision will be made by the commission at its March 25-26, 2009 public meeting.

Details about the possible regulation changes can be found online at http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/newsmedia/releases/?req=20081110a . TPWD invites the public to weigh in on these possible proposals by clicking the public comments section on the TPWD home page.
