White-tailed deer season opens in earnest the second week of November in Texas, and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department predicts a bountiful season for hunters.

Good rains correlate to well-fed deer with above average antler sizes.

Hunters are also asked to submit a blood specimen from their kills after cases of Chronic Wasting Disease have presented in Medina and Lavaca Counties in south-east Texas. Follow the link to find how to submit a sample to your closest TPWD biologist.

Staying up to date on the latest deer-hunting regulations is becoming even simpler with online and mobile companion applications.

You can also apply for a hunting license through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department using the link above.
