Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has established statewide Youth Only open seasons for deer, turkey, squirrel and, with cooperation of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, waterfowl.
The purpose of these Youth Only open seasons is to provide youth with opportunities to learn about wildlife conservation through an enjoyable and memorable outdoor experience and allow parents and mentors to introduce them to safe and responsible hunting. The Youth Only open seasons hunts are scheduled to occur at times when youth are out of school.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department encourages experienced hunters to seek out youth and provide the guidance to make the event both enjoyable and educational for the beginning hunter.
October Special Youth-Only Season will be Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 29-30, 2011.
All legal hunting means and methods are allowed, except Grayson County is archery only. All other deer hunting, other than by youth hunters, shall be by means of lawful archery and crossbows (hunters with upper limb disability) only. See bag limits in the Outdoor Annual.
