TPWD only lists lawful means & methods, spears are not listed as a lawful means.

You can always send them the question, when whoever receives it stops laughing they'll answer.

---> TPWD Question, comments
Select Game warden / law enforcement.

No it’s not legal on game animals


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Because just about anyone can make their own spear. So big sporting good manufacturers have not lobbied for a special spear season.


If you can't laugh at yourself, give me a call. I'll gladly laugh at you.

I believe that

Just some buddies talking and that came up

Nobody knew and google let us down

But if you think about it, $$$ is the only reason

Watch some pig hunting spear hunting, it’s legit

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Not a legal means and method under TPWD definitions for deer. Pigs yes but I'm not gonna exert that much energy on pigs when other methods and thermal works for me
