We saw one in southeastern Taylor county, but that was years ago, last I heard someone shot him.

It's fun to see them
We have seen a dozen on my place this year
We only shoot the bulls hoping that neighbors will do the same and let the heard get larger
I Know not a native species so can't blame people who shoot everyone they see
We see many more on trail cam than we ever see in person

No tag. They are considered an exotic in Texas

So basically if I see something out of the ordinary walk in front of me while I'm in the stand, it's an exotic and I can take it? Exotic being a non native animal that someone raised and it got loose or something?

What if it has a tag in its ear? I would think unethical but legal? I know the chances of that happening to me are slim to none so I never gave it much thought

Most exotics are free game. If it has a tag in its ear, the owner can take it from you but it is civil, not criminal from my understanding. No tag or marking and it is free game.

We have killed fallow, elk, audoud, Sitka, and have seen oryx, axis, blackbuck and I am sure some I am forgetting.

Simple easy law.

1) must have land owner permission first
2)if original owner can prove it was theirs you will loose procession.

First one is way more important then the second. With that said make sure the exotic you are shooting doesn't require CITE tags!!!!

had a lady kill a Sable buck in the back of my neighborhood. It was eating from her "deer watching" feeder and she wasn't sure what it was so she shot it. It was a monster!!

I'm waiting on BOBO to stock his place with Elk! Cant wait to go chute one (after we fix his down fences)

Dove hunted Coleman this year, had no idea there where that any "exotics" around?
