MEMPHIS – Coming into my first month as a Texas Game Warden was a busy one, as it is for every game warden in Texas.
The month started off with the July 4th weekend, where just about every game warden is out on a lake ensuring everyone is safely boating. Several game wardens across the state, including myself, made several Boating While Intoxicated arrests. Unfortunately, a few Texas Game Wardens even worked deadly boating accidents during the month of July.
Water safety is a top priority of Texas Game Wardens. Therefore, during the summer months, Texas Game Wardens are often found out patrolling different lakes and streams across the state to ensure water safety and enforce fishing laws.
August is an exciting time of the year. It is time for hunters to start filling deer feeders and checking trail cameras or scoping out great hunting locations. Most people forget it’s also time to purchase a new hunting license and check the local changes in the law.
Aug. 31 is when most hunting and fishing licenses expire. It is important to remind hunters and anglers to go purchase a new license. Keep in mind, this year Texas Parks and Wildlife will not have a printed version of the Texas Outdoor Annual.
The Texas Outdoor Annual is an important resource for hunters and anglers, as this is where you may find local laws and regulations pertaining to hunting and fishing. Don’t worry, the information is still out there and available. The Texas Outdoor Annual is available as an app on any smart device. It would be wise for every hunter and angler to download the app.
