Dear Public Hunter,
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Youth Deer Either Sex hunt scheduled for Jan. 14-16, 2017 has been cancelled. Loyalty Points will be restored for all confirmed youth hunters.
Because of recent flooding at Wright Patman lake, the United State Army Corp of Engineers has decided to conduct an extensive logging operation within the boundaries of Atlanta State Park. The United State Army Corp of Engineers has estimated that near 90% of the Shortleaf Pines inundated by the flood are now infested with pine beetles or other invertebrates and will die within the calendar year. Unfortunately this logging operation will extensively if not completely affect the hunt area on the Park.
TPWD’s Public Hunting Program apologies for any inconvenience or hardship these cancellations may cause. You can reach the Public Hunting Program Mon-Fri. 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at 800/792-1112, menu 5 or 512/389-4505.
