Atascosa County Game Warden, Officer Jon Brauchle, stopped by the Pleasanton Express with some information for the 2018-2019 Hunting Season.
Every hunter (including out-of-state hunters), born on or after September 2, 1971, must successfully complete a Hunter Education Course. Proof of certification or deferral is required to be on your person while hunting. Persons 17 years of age or older have the option of taking the course in person or online. Please visit tpwd. texas.gov/oa/HunterEd for more information.
You can also download the Outdoor Annual app, from your smartphone’s app store, to look up hunting regulations and seasons. Officer Brauchle would like everyone to know the rules of hunting and use a little common sense when it comes to hunting around others, “Just because it isn’t against the law, does not mean it’s unethical.”
