Nothing quite compares to that of Texas hunting. Prone Outfitters is one of the most respected hunting outfitters in the state of Texas. If you’re interested in learning how to get started hunting in Texas, we’re going to walk you through the entire process.

Hunter Education Course

Every hunter (including out-of-state hunters) born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete a Hunter Education Training Course. Minimum age of certification is 9 years of age.

If you were born on or after September 2, 1971 and you are:

1. Under 9 years of age, you must be accompanied*.
2. Age 9 through 16, you must successfully complete a hunter education course, or you must be accompanied*.
3. Age 17 and over, you must successfully complete a hunter education course; or purchase a “Hunter Education Deferral” and you must be accompanied*.

Accompanied means:  By a person who is at least 17, who is licensed to hunt in Texas, who has passed hunter education or is exempt (born before Sept. 2, 1971), and you must be within normal voice control. Proof of certification or deferral is required to be on your person while hunting. Note: Certification is not required to purchase a hunting license.

Texas Game Laws And Requirements

There’s a number of different game laws and requirements for hunting in Texas that you need to be aware of.  You want to make sure that you’re familiar with hunting laws in Texas and also the laws of any Texas county you expect to be hunting in.





Purchase A Texas Hunting License

The next thing you want to do is purchase your Texas hunting license. You will need a hunting license to legally hunt in Texas and depending on what you hunt, you may need stamp endorsements. The best deal is known as the Super Combo. Texas hunting licenses are sold by more than 1,600 agents throughout the state or purchase online.

Prepare Your Hunting Equipment

Before you start your Texas hunt, you want to make sure that you’re completely prepared to go hunting. Be sure to take the time to get your hunting equipment prepared. We’re referring to your hunting guns, bows, boots and attire.

Practice Target Shooting

If this is your first hunt in Texas or first hunt in general, you may want to take the time to practice shooting a target. All avid hunters take the time to practice shooting. This will help you get familiar with your weapon and it will help you with aiming. Remember, practice makes perfect.
