Are all deer and hog hunts on public land by draw only?

See this link https://tpwd.texas.gov/huntwild/hunt/public/, and the National Forests are free

When you buy your public land permit ($48) you'll be given a book that shows all legal hunts available both draw and walk in for Texas. Deer is typically going to be draw outside of National Forests, but lots of small game /birds dont require a draw all around. Here's a link that shows all the areas and game available. The map is decent as well
