What or who determines if not processing a certain animal is waste of game or not and how is this determined? An example of this would be it is considered a waste of game if you do not process a javelina, but it is okay to not process an Auodad (my assumption). Just wondering if there is a chef that works for the TP&W that is continuously working on recipes so certain animals get upgraded to a status where it is a violation to not process them? Lol

I think the general rule is if it has a season and/or a bag limit, it is considered a game animal.

Waste of game would be not keeping any edible portion of a game animal in an edible condition. Doesn't matter if the hunter considers it a palatable meat only if it is a game animal according to TPWD.

Waste of Game: It is an offense (Class C misdemeanor) if a person while hunting kills or wounds a game bird or game animal and intentionally or knowingly fails to make a reasonable effort to retrieve the animal or bird and include it in the person's daily or seasonal bag limit. It is an offense if a person intentionally takes or possesses a game bird, game animal or fish and intentionally, knowingly or recklessly or with criminal negligence, fails to keep the edible portions of the bird, animal or fish in an edible condition. It is a Class A misdemeanor to fail to retrieve or to keep in an edible condition a whitetail or mule deer, pronghorn antelope or desert bighorn sheep hunted without landowner consent; from a vehicle, boat or aircraft; on a public road; at night; or with the aid of a light.

Doesn't say you have to eat it. Dogs will eat any meat.

What determines if an animal is a game animal besides just the declaration by TP&W? Wasn't the javelina put on the game animal list a few years back? Was wondering why?

In Texas, I believe all game animals are indigenous, but not indigenous animals are game animals. State (TPW) and Federal law make the determinations.

Javi is a game animal, Aoudad is not.... you must clean any animal listed under game by TPWD.

a well cleaned Javi would be hands down better than some old billy aoudad...
besides, all aoudads are vermin that should have never been let loose in this state..

So members who have admitted they have shot javi's but would never eat them have just told the Warden to come and write them up ??? Sounds like some fellows need to edit their old posts??

I understand that, but what is used to determine whether an animal is a game animal or not?

native specie is a primary reason.

Not necessarily. You can take the edible portions home, not eat them, and be legal. If they left the edible portions in the field, that would be illegal.

TPWD determines that, I suppose. Being native and of some value would factor in. Coyotes are native but not generally considered to be of any value. Pheasants are not native but are held in high regard. It's not quite black an white, but there is some rhyme and reason to it.
