TPWD Apps Aid Hunters in the Field

When gearing up for hunting and fishing this fall, be sure to include two mobile apps from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department that offer access to a world of resources: the Texas Outdoor Annual app and the My Texas Hunt Harvest app.

While you may be familiar with the printed Outdoor Annual booklet that has been a staple of tackle boxes and glove compartments for years, the new mobile app gives customers more choices in accessing important regulations information.

Updated hunting, fishing and boating regulations for the new season are now available in the Texas Outdoor Annual mobile app, offering offline access to regulations (once the app is downloaded), the ability to view your license, location-based information on hunting seasons, and freshwater fishing locations (including water body-specific regulations, access points and fishing reports), along with other features.

The free app is available in app stores, at OutdoorAnnual.com or by texting TPWD OA to 468-311 to receive a download link.

With the My Texas Hunt Harvest app, you can satisfy reporting requirements for eastern turkey, white-tailed deer and alligator gar harvest, as well as complete electronic on-site registration for most public hunting sites accessed when using the annual public hunting permit. Mandatory harvest reporting can also be completed online.

Download the My Texas Hunt Harvest app at tpwd.texas.gov/myhunt before you head out to hunt. The app is also available in Spanish to customers who use Spanish as the main language setting on their mobile devices.
