is it lawful in texas, as i cannot find anything against it, to take multiple guns into the field hunting at the same time, so long as individually they comply with texas law?



e.g. heading into ground blind with a 300 win mag bolt (for deer) and 223 semi-auto for hog.

if you say no, please provide link to regulation on TPWD website that says so. thanks

Means and Methods
Firearms
NEW LAW: Silencers may be used to take any wildlife resource; however, all federal, state and local laws continue to apply.

Game animals and game birds may be hunted with any legal firearm, EXCEPT:

•white-tailed deer, mule deer, desert bighorn sheep, and pronghorn antelope may NOT be hunted with rimfire ammunition of any caliber.
•shotguns are the only legal firearm that may be used to hunt Eastern turkey during the spring Eastern turkey season (see County Listing). Rifles and handguns may not be used to hunt Eastern turkey.
•pellet guns and other air guns are NOT LEGAL.
•fully automatic firearms are NOT LEGAL.
•a shotgun is the only legal firearm for hunting migratory game birds (see Definitions - Legal Shotgun).
Nongame Animals (Non-Protected): Any lawful firearm, pellet gun, or other air gun is legal.

Magazine Capacity (number of shells/cartridges allowed): There are no restrictions on the number of shells or cartridges a legal firearm may hold when hunting game animals or game birds (except migratory game birds, see Legal Shotgun).

Muzzleloader: Any firearm that is loaded only through the muzzle. Note: A cap and ball firearm in which the powder and ball are loaded into a cylinder is not a muzzleloader. Muzzleloader deer seasons are restricted to muzzleloading firearms only.

Possession of firearms by felons: A convicted felon, regardless of where the conviction occurred, may not possess or use a firearm (as defined by Penal Code, §46.01) to hunt in this state. Under Penal Code, §46.01, a muzzleloading firearm is lawful if it is an antique or curio firearm manufactured before 1899 or a replica of an antique or curio firearm manufactured before 1899 that does not use rimfire or centerfire ammunition.

I do not see anything that says what you are saying is illegal.

I believe you can take your whole safe out there if you can carry it and not be detected by the deer and hogs. Good luck this weekend!

No and it's never been..You can be in a blind with 10 rifles and
can't shoot but one..They must be in compliance with State Law individually..but how are you or anybody else going to shoot more
than one weapon at a time..I've carried a shotgun for quail/and a
deer rifle several times..to our blinds and gotten a few birds while I watched the does..DD

Reminds me of a funny story. A few years ago we had an old doe that we called snorter. Every Time she came in to a feeder she would continually snort and stomp around your blind until she would eventually run all your deer off. I started carrying my trusty old Benjamin pump pellet gun to the blind with me just to irritate that ole winch. I would pump it just enough to burn her butt pretty good and run her off. I guess I was breaking the law. confused2 grin

Perfectly legal.

I frequently carry an AR15, a Glock .45 and a "deer rifle".

I have trouble deciding and often bring two rifles to the blind. I brought a rifle , a scoped pistol and a crossbow on a hog/archery deer hunt 3 weeks ago.

You broke the law unless y'all are MLD.

Believe he was indicating the time at which this occurred. Opening day is tomorrow...if you are hunting with a rifle three weeks ago...it better be under permit. Just guessing there.

You cannot have a gun with you if you have a bow and broadhead points during archery deer season. The only exceptions are if you have a CHL and have a concealed pistol, or if you are MLD in which case archery season doesn't apply to you.

In other words you can't deer hunt with a bow, and hog hunt with a rifle at the same time if it is archery only deer season.

Thanks for clarifing that. I have never bow hunted and I didn't know that. I assumed he would be shooting hogs with the rifle so he would be legal. You never get to old to learn. grin

Gosh, some of yall have too much shoulder room or maybe four hands.

I don't think there is anything illegal about it, but it just seems logically easier to have just one rifle (and maybe a pistol, but if you are carrying a rifle it seems like it is overkilll).
