What does Texas parks and wildlife do with the rifles and shotguns confiscated by game wardens? Are they returned in most cases? Destroyed? sold?

I bet some of those poachers have some nice guns, I wouldn't mind bidding on them at an auction.

I am not sure anybody would answer on the grounds they may incriminate themselves...LOL>>. However, not by personal experience but one I observed....guns were confiscated for an offense and returned when restitution was made. There are some state auctions for siezed merchandise, I do know that.

can't swear to it but I was told that they sell and auction the seized firearms at "dealer-only" sales and auctions.

Some do destroy, not all; Some trade to dealers for something they need or want, guns/ammo; some sell/aution to dealers only. I know

It would make more sense to me to sell or auction them. That way, the police force that sells them could make a little money or swap them for "issue" weapons.

I believe in some cases, they give these firearms to certain hunting and shooting sports education programs. They also give some to youth hunting programs. The rest are sold and the proceeds go to Operation Game Thief.

Nope! That firearm is under control of the state until such time as the case is dismissed or adjudicated. The Judge will then decide the disposition of the firearm (return, destroy, auction, or award to agency for use)
