Did they change the law this year? I heard that TPWD was thinking about allowing you to possess a gun during bow season (without a CHL), but I haven't heard if the law actually changed this year.
Would be nice to be able to have something that could reach out and take a pig if the opportunity were to arise.

Why even have a bow season if you were allowed to have a gun?

Might as well just say hunting season has started.

They changed that last year. It was a stupid law. So now you carry carry a gun when you go hunting, just like every other day of the year.

I know a couple people on here are positive you can, and they may be right, but you better call TP&W to find out. I cannot find it anywhere in the Outdoor Annual, but in the (recent) past, it was very much unlawful to be in possession of a firearm while archery hunting.

Lol, I never asked that question. I carry daily so why wouldn't I carry at the lease? Only difference is I open carry at the lease.
