With the opening of dove hunting season only a couple weeks away, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department reminds sportsmen that all current year Texas hunting and fishing licenses (except year-to-date fishing licenses) expire August 31. New licenses for the 2018-2019 go on sale Wednesday, August 15.
Hunters and anglers can purchase licenses online at www.tpwd.texas.gov/buy at license retailers, or by phone at (800) 895-4248. The online transaction system is available 24/7. Call center hours are Monday through Friday, 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. There is a required $5 administrative fee for each phone or online transaction, but unlimited items can be purchased during a single transaction for this $5 fee.
Hunters can also enter to win a premium guided hunt package, or an entry in the lifetime license drawing.
