AUSTIN – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is now accepting public comment on proposed changes to hunting regulations for 2020-2021.

Establish seasons and bag limits for the take of migratory game birds for 2020-21
Decrease the daily bag limit for scaup from three to one in all zones
Decrease the daily bag limit for light goose daily bag limit from twenty to ten during the regular season in both zones
Shift goose seasons (and light goose conservation season) in the Western Zone one week later than in previous years
Shift snipe hunting season dates two weeks later than in previous years

I was wondering what you would think of that. Still haven't been yet. Maybe next year.

I've about come to the conclusion the goal of these meetings isn't so much to solicit public input as they are about the TPWD learning if people are going to agree with decisions already made.
