Hi just curious if anyone knows of any public land where rifle hunting is permitted. Or at least shotgun hunting for hogs. I've searched Google and Texas Parks and Wildlife, could get a clear answer.

TPWD - when you purchase the $48 Annual Public Hunting permit, you will have access to WMA's and other hunting areas, each has its own "legal game" noted in the booklet they'll mail you. Some area allow rifle hunting, some are bow only, some allow deer rifle, some deer bow only, some do not allow any deer hunts. There are several that allow feral hog with rifle. Use the booklet TPWD mails you when you buy the APH permit, or the website can also be used to find areas where you can rifle hunt. Good luck!

Oh yes there are a few like some of the national forests and WMA's

APH permit for $48 will get you access to all of the places legally allowed to the public

What everyone else said, get the $48 public hunting permit and read the area you want to hunting
