Texas Game Warden Field Notes: Do You Have Your Jackalope License?

The following items are compiled from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports. With That License? A Jackalope, Maybe A Presidio County game warden was checking a hunting camp for game law compliance during the second day of pronghorn antelope season when he came upon an out-of-state hunter who had harvested a pronghorn. The hunter did possess a valid pronghorn permit. But, upon inspection of his hunting license, it was discovered that the hunter only purchased a Non-Resident Five Day Special Hunting License ($48). This license is valid for hunting small game, such as rabbits and squirrels, but not a pronghorn. A Non-Resident General Hunting License ($315) is required to hunt all big game animals in Texas. The hunter was cited for hunting without a valid license, received a warning for no hunter education certification, and the pronghorn was seized. The citation and civil restitution for the pronghorn are pending. Next in Line, Please On Oct. 1 at about 9 p.m., a Hunt County game warden received a call from a landowner about shots being fired from a county road near her home. The warden responded and soon located a truck with a spotlight being shined from the window. He stopped the vehicle and a brief investigation revealed the subjects inside were the ones shooting from the roadway. The warden seized three spotlights, two semi-automatic rifles and...
