All hunters must be licensed for the game they're hunting and hunt only during the legal season for the game. All hunters born after Sept. 2, 1971 must also carry proof of completion of a hunter education course, proof of deferment from the course, and/or be accompanied-within voice distance-of a licensed hunter who has completed a hunter safety course. Any hunters under 9 years of age must be accompanied. Before you head out into the field, make sure you're familiar with the regulations contained in the Outdoor Annual Hunting and Fishing Regulations handbook, which is available online or in print from TPWD offices and license retailers.
