I heard a rumor that there are some new rules affecting the 2020-2021 lottery hunts because of COVID-19. I can't find any information online to verify this so I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has a resource to verify. Apparently, one new rule is that there will be no standbys for this coming season along with a bunch of other protective measures.

My understanding is there will be no standby for the remaining hunts this season ( Turkey and pig). Drawn hunters will still be able to hunt.

OK, that makes more sense. Thanks

But I would call the WMA to verify.

Dear Public Hunter,

The safety, health and well-being of public hunters and TPWD staff are always our primary concern when you visit us on a hunt, especially during the current health situation that has swept the globe. While we are not canceling public hunts at this time, we are making some temporary changes to public hunting activities on state parks and WMAs.

We will not be drawing on-site, standby positions for any hunts during the remainder of the season.

Hunter check-in and orientations will be held outdoors with room for hunters to practice social distancing.

Hand sanitizer and/or soap and water will be provided at public areas such as check stations and restrooms.

We will disinfect public areas such as check stations and restrooms at least 2x a day.

If you were drawn for an upcoming hunt, a hunt manager will be in contact to confirm your attendance and provide instructions on how to check in using social distancing protocols. If you want to cancel due to health concerns, please let the hunt manager know and also email your request to hunt@tpwd.texas.gov, including your name and permit number in your email. In the event your hunt is canceled, you will automatically be issued a refund and will not need to call us.

These new policies are temporarily in effect for the remainder of this season.

Stay safe,

TPWD Public Hunting Program Team
