Commission Agenda Item No. 4
Presenter: Linda Campbell
Public Lands Proclamation
Establishment of an Open Season on Public Hunting Lands
Approval of Public Hunting Activities on State Parks
May 23, 2013
I. Executive Summary: This item seeks:
- adoption of proposed amendments to the Public Lands Proclamation;
- adoption of an open season on public hunting lands for the 2013-14 season; and,
- authorization of specific public hunting activities on public hunting lands, including units of the State Park System, for the 2013-2014 season.
II. Discussion: Under Parks and Wildlife Code, Chapter 81, Subchapter E, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission is authorized to promulgate rules governing access to and use of public hunting lands and specific hunting, fishing, recreational, or other use of wildlife management areas (WMA) and requires the Commission to prescribe by rule any terms, conditions, and fees for the issuance and use of permits.
Parks and Wildlife Code, Chapter 12, Subchapter A, provides that a tract of land purchased primarily for a purpose authorized by the code may be used for any authorized function of the Parks and Wildlife Department “if the Commission determines that multiple use is the best utilization of the land’s resources.”
Additionally, Chapter 81, Subchapter E, provides the Commission with the authority to establish open seasons, and authorizes the Executive Director to determine bag limits, means and methods, and conditions for the taking of wildlife resources on wildlife management and public hunting lands, which includes units of the State Park System designated as public hunting lands.
At the March 27, 2013 Regulations Committee, staff presented the following proposed amendments to the Public Lands Proclamation:
- Remove Old Tunnel and Walter Buck Wildlife Management Areas (WMA). These units have been transferred to State Parks.
- Remove the WMA designation from Granger, Ray Roberts and Somerville. Due to budget and personnel constraints, Granger and Ray Roberts are no longer staffed by TPWD personnel. However, under a new agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE), they will remain open to public hunting. Somerville is being transferred to State Parks.
- Initiate housekeeping changes regarding the naming of U.S. Forest Service (USFS) units and COE units.
- Add a regulation that would prohibit users from leaving personal property unattended on public hunting lands except as specifically authorized by the site manager.
- Add language to the regulation to clarify when it is legal to use dogs to hunt on public hunting lands.
III. Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Commission adopt the following motions:
- “The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts amendments to §65.190 and §65.191, concerning the Public Lands Proclamation, with changes as necessary to the proposed text as published in the April 19, 2013, issue of the Texas Register(38 TexReg 2484).”
- "The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission authorizes an open season on public hunting lands to run from September 1, 2013 to August 31, 2014."
- "The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission authorizes the public hunting activities contained in Exhibit A to take place on units of the State Park System."
Commission Agenda Item No. 4
PUBLIC LANDS PROCLAMATION
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department proposes amendments to §§65.190, 65.191, 65.193, and 65.199, concerning the Public Lands Proclamation.
The proposed amendment to §65.190, concerning Application, would make several nonsubstantive organizational and nomenclatural changes. The proposed amendment would add language to subsection (b) to refer to the full name of the Caddo National Grasslands Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and organize the listing of the entities affected by the subsections (a) and (b) by naming WMAs first, followed by other types of public hunting lands. The proposed amendment also would remove Old Tunnel and Walter Buck WMAs from the inventory of WMAs because they are now part of the state park system.
The proposed amendment to §65.191, concerning Definitions, would add the acronym “PHL” to the definition of “public hunting lands” so that public hunting lands can be referred to by an acronym when necessary.
The proposed amendment to § 65.193, concerning Access Permit Required and Fees, would eliminate subsection (b)(4)(A) and (B), which are not necessary because they repeat provisions already contained in §65.190(b) and (c).
The proposed amendment to §65.199, concerning General Rules of Conduct, would define the term “unattended,” clarify the use of dogs to hunt, and create offenses for leaving personal gear or floating conveyances unattended within the boundaries of public hunting lands or hunting with dogs in violation of the rule. WMA staff have experienced difficulties with the abandonment of gear and equipment (such as waterfowl decoys, temporary floating blinds, and personal effects) on public hunting lands and with user conflicts arising from temporary blinds and waterfowl decoys left out overnight to “stake a claim” to an area for hunting activities in the future. Unless a person has been drawn for or is participating in specific hunting activities scheduled by the department, the department believes that providing hunting opportunity on a daily, first-come, first-served basis is the most equitable method of distributing walk-in hunting privileges. Additionally, collecting and disposing of abandoned property diverts department field personnel from other duties. The proposed amendment would therefore prohibit leaving personal gear or floating conveyances unattended and would provide that such material is “unattended” if the person who is responsible for the gear, equipment, or floating conveyance is not within normal voice distance. The proposed amendment also would provide an exception for personal gear within designated campsites and camping areas and during multi-day hunts scheduled by the department.
The proposed amendment also would specify that dogs may be used to hunt on public hunting lands only when explicitly authorized by the department publications “Map Booklet for Public Hunting Lands” and “Applications for Drawings on Public Hunting Lands,” and that it is an offense to use a dog to hunt on public hunting lands unless the use of dogs to hunt is specifically authorized in those publications. Under Parks and Wildlife Code, §81.402, the executive director of the department may regulate numbers, means, methods, and conditions for taking wildlife resources on wildlife management areas and public hunting lands. The numbers, means, methods, and conditions for taking wildlife resources on wildlife management areas and public hunting lands are prescribed by executive order in the department publications entitled “Map Booklet for Public Hunting Lands” and “Applications for Drawings on Public Lands,” which contain language addressing the use of dogs on public lands; however, in the interests of clarity, staff have determined that it has become necessary to explicitly state by rule that the rules governing the use of dogs on public hunting lands are set forth in those publications.
2. Fiscal Note.
Linda Campbell, Director of Private Lands and Public Hunting, has determined that for each of the first five years that the rules as proposed are in effect, there will be no fiscal implications to state and local governments as a result of enforcing or administering the rules.
3. Public Benefit/Cost Note.
Ms. Campbell also has determined that for each of the first five years the rules as proposed are in effect:
(A) The public benefit anticipated as a result of enforcing or administering the rules as proposed will be clearer rules that enhance enforcement and compliance.
(B) There will be no adverse economic effect on persons required to comply with the rules as proposed.
(C) Under the provisions of Government Code, Chapter 2006, a state agency must prepare an economic impact statement and a regulatory flexibility analysis for a rule that may have an adverse economic effect affect on small businesses and micro-businesses. As required by Government Code, §2006.002(g), the Office of the Attorney General has prepared guidelines to assist state agencies in determining a proposed rule’s potential adverse economic impact on small businesses. Those guidelines state that an agency need only consider a proposed rule’s “direct adverse economic impacts” to small businesses and micro-businesses to determine if any further analysis is required. For that purpose, the department considers “direct economic impact” to mean a requirement that would directly impose recordkeeping or reporting requirements; impose taxes or fees; result in lost sales or profits; adversely affect market competition; or require the purchase or modification of equipment or services. The department has determined that the proposed amendments will not impose any direct adverse economic effects on small businesses, microbusinesses, or persons required to comply. Accordingly, the department has not prepared a regulatory flexibility analysis under Government Code, Chapter 2006.
(D) The department has not drafted a local employment impact statement under the Administrative Procedures Act, §2001.022, as the agency has determined that the rules as proposed will not impact local economies.
(E) The department has determined that there will not be a taking of private real property, as defined by Government Code, Chapter 2007, as a result of the proposed rules.
4. Request for Public Comment.
Comments on the proposed rule may be submitted to Linda Campbell, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 4200 Smith School Road, Austin, Texas, 78744; (512) 389-4395 (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
5. Statutory Authority.
The amendments are proposed under the authority of Parks and Wildlife Code, §81.006, which prohibits the take, attempted take, or possession of any wildlife or fish from a wildlife management area except in the manner and during the times permitted by the department under Chapter 81, Subchapter E, and under Chapter 81, Subchapter E, which provides the Parks and Wildlife Commission with authority to establish an open season on wildlife management areas and public hunting lands, authorizes the executive director to regulate numbers, means, methods, and conditions for taking wildlife resources on wildlife management areas and public hunting lands, and authorizes the commission to adopt rules governing recreational activities in wildlife management areas.
