Question: When training a hunting dog in Texas during the off season does TPWD require a Hunting Dog Training License in addition to regular hunting license?

Oklahoma requires hunting dog trainer lincense, which allows:

"A. A hunting dog trainer may carry shotguns or firearms on public or private property other than state parks where hunting game to kill is now prohibited while training bird hunting dogs provided that:

1. The trainer notifies the game warden in his region prior to going into the field;

2. The trainer has a dog training shoot to kill license, obtainable from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation at a fee not to exceed Ten Dollars ($10.00) per year;

3. The trainer has a current receipt from a licensed commercial or noncommercial game breeder of the propagated bird, or has reared the bird himself, which is being released for the training purposes, stating the number of birds and the date obtained; and

4. All propagated birds so used are tagged or banded prior to their release. Provided, further that the use of a bird hunting dog may be permitted in the legal hunting of quail, dove, prairie chickens, pheasant and waterfowl.

5. A person may carry a pistol while training a bird dog without having met the provisions of paragraphs 1 through 4 of this subsection."

Thanks.

Not in Texas. You have to have a private bird shooting area to keep, and shoot quail.

I'm not aware of it either...

A permit to have a trial and to shoot game birds is what I'm familiar with.

Just stop by the game commission and talk to them. They are pretty easy to get along with.

In Texas
If you want to train bird dogs with pen raised birds, or shoot quail, outside of the Texas Quail season you need a " Private Bird Hunting Area" PBHA license from TPWD. You have to put leg bands, with the PBHA number,on all birds released on the PBHA. If you plan to have pen raised birds on hand for sale you also need a "Game Bird Breeders " license from TPWD
