How about an ID? Living under my deck!
Asking for a friend.
I have a question for a Warden.

If I have a valid license for saltwater, can I collect barnacles and oysters to use as bait from rocks, pilings, jetties, etc.

I am asking so I dont get into any trouble this fall. I want to scrape oysters and barnacles for sheepshead bait.
Join us at Fishing Texas Waters
Ok Texas Parks and Wildlife please confirm what this is. I have my suspicions but want to hear from the experts. TIA!
Danny and his team really nice and helpful with my first boat transaction so excited
East Texas Piney Woods, Anderson County. Could this be a jaguarundi? Captured on a trail cam on 7-14-2021 at around 6:30pm.
My Monarch Butterfly plates were made on July 5
Still have not rcvd a msg from anyone to get them
The communication is antiquated at best
Ranch Critters Erath County
Is it required to have an email address to get a hunting license?
Any idea what this is? I dont think this is a white tail. I was told it maybe a fallow deer. He has been around a lot these last few weeks in the Texas hill country
Why in the world is the Texas Parks and Wildlife dealing with licensing and or tagging boats and boat motors. This agency's personnel, especially in the Lubbock office, are so power hungry making anyone who comes in there to purchase the titles, tags, etc...they make you jump through hoops just to get what you need. This job needs to be left to the agency that knows what and how to take care of licensing and tagging vehicles. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. This should not be the job of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. They need to stay within their limits which would be hunting and fishing permits, and things that deal with parks and wildlife, not boating. A boat is a motor vehicle and should be treated as such by the TDMV, not TPW.
