The official start of hunting season is just days away, but there are a few reminders for hunters to keep in mind. September 1 is the official start date for pigeon hunting season, as well as adult squirrel hunting season, which means hunters don’t have much time to renew their hunting licenses if they were too busy preparing.
Hunting licenses expire tomorrow, August 31, and must be renewed before any hunting that is in season can take place. KAMC News reported that the Outdoor Annual app and the My Hunt Texas Harvest app are two easy ways hunters can purchase their hunting licenses and keep their license numbers handy. The apps also don’t need any cell phone signal to work, as long as customers have logged into the app once, allowing hunters to have their information handy in case they run into rangers in an area with no cell signal. .
County residents are advised that if they hear gunshots in the morning or in the evening, they are advised that they may be law enforcement hunters. Hunters have 30 minutes before sunrise to hunt and may not hunt after sunset with migratory game birds. As the time of sunrise and sunset changes each day, so does the time when you can hunt, it is recommended to check online what the local times of both daily events will be each day. Regulations to follow specifically for pigeon can be found online along with county search, Lubbock County Pigeon Regulations can be found here.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation also recommends that hunters wear long clothing in case of rattlesnakes and be on the lookout for abandoned watering holes. Abandoned water wells must be reported due to the problems they could cause to groundwater and to strays according to the Texas Occupations Code. The Texas Occupation Code also provides guidelines on what defines an abandoned water well and what does not. Water wells that have passed all abandonment guidelines must be reported to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation along with GPS coordinates or address to ensure the safety of all people and animals.
