Waco (FOX 44/KWKT) — While Texas deals with triple-digit temperatures, there are signs that fall is just around the corner. Students are going back to school, Halloween decorations are in the stores, and it is almost time to buy your annual hunting and fishing licenses.
The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department will begin license sales on Tuesday, Aug. 15. Licenses purchased last year will expire at the end of August.
More than 2.7 million licenses are sold each year, according to the state agency. The money raised by those sales goes to conservation efforts and other programs.
Along with the annual digital licenses, TPWD is also offering Youth Hunting, Lifetime Hunting and Fishing tags, and the Exempt Angler tag. The digital license option is available through online purchase only when licenses go on sale Aug. 15.
TPWD is also doing a drawing for three Lifetime Super Combo licenses. Each entry is $5 and can be purchased online, over the phone, or at a license retailer. The first entry deadline is Sept. 30.
