Did they change the law this year? I heard that TPWD was thinking about allowing you to possess a gun during bow season (without a CHL), but I haven't heard if the law actually changed this year.
Would be nice to be able to have something that could reach out and take a pig if the opportunity were to arise.

Why even have a bow season if you were allowed to have a gun?

Might as well just say hunting season has started.

They changed that last year. It was a stupid law. So now you carry carry a gun when you go hunting, just like every other day of the year.

I know a couple people on here are positive you can, and they may be right, but you better call TP&W to find out. I cannot find it anywhere in the Outdoor Annual, but in the (recent) past, it was very much unlawful to be in possession of a firearm while archery hunting.


Thank you...thank you very much

In addition, a provision prohibiting possession of firearms while hunting deer or turkey during an open archery season has been removed. Lawful archery equipment remains the only means authorized to take deer or turkey during archery season.

Lol, I never asked that question. I carry daily so why wouldn't I carry at the lease? Only difference is I open carry at the lease.


How come everybody I meet is a deer hunting expert?
