Check with the county clerk to see if there any covenants or deed restrictions.

Probably easiest to just call the Game Warden and ask them.

This... Game warden probably wouldn't know if it's deed restricted or not.

The County Clerk might not even know either. They should be able to point you in the right direction to search the deed records for any restrictions on the property. They could go back generations so don't assume until you are sure.
that's why a title search is so important before buying.

The most important thing is try to respect the neighbors. Don't hunt the property line, shoot away from houses and livestock. Those kind of things just help create a more respectful existence while you are hunting.

Good luck. Small acreages can be little gold mines.


One shot is all it should take.

Hope this helps:

find out if in city or just county

Quote:
SB 734 -- Amends Agriculture Code 251.002, 251.005 and Local Government Code 43.002, and adds Local Government Code 229.002.

Cities previously had unbridled authority, with no public recourse, to pass an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of a firearm, air gun or bow on any new land annexed by a city, regardless of its previous usage or lack of development. This gives landowners recourse and only effects city-annexed lands. It should help to slow down the anti-gun-rights effects of urban sprawl.

First, it limits the definition of an "agricultural operation" to a specific list of activities, and adds silviculture (development and care of forests) and wildlife management to the existing list. The law previously was not limited to the activities on the list.

Because some city regulations could affect shooting, certain controls are expanded and described in greater detail than previously, to help limit abuse. A city in general may not regulate anything on the redefined agricultural operations outside its boundaries, or that exist on newly annexed land.

Cities are also now specifically prohibited from regulating shooting on certain defined lands:
1 - if the gun is a shotgun, air gun, BB gun or bow and arrow, on 10 acres or more and not within 150 feet of a residence or occupied building on another property, if it is fired in a way that is unlikely to cross a property line, or
2 - for a centerfire or rim fire pistol or rifle of any caliber on 50 acres, not within 300 feet of a residence or occupied building on another property, and in a way not likely to cross a property line. The defined lands include those within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of a city, or areas annexed after Sep. 1, 1981.

Key is whether annexed prior to sept 1, 1981 if annexed after that the city cannot restrict you for bow or shotgun. Now there could be some covenants in effect if its a subdivision but I would doubt that.Even if thats the case you wouldn't be violating state law.
