Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) have rules and regulations for hunting not required on private property. Hunters must possess a valid hunting license, the appropriate tags and stamps, as well as the proper public hunting permit. Permits include: Annual Public Hunting Permit (APH), computer drawn Special Permits, and the Regular Permit, which allows daily small game hunting on some areas. Hunters 16 years of age and younger are not required to have a hunting permit, but must have a hunting license and be supervised by a licensed, permitted adult, 18 years of age or older. Hunters and non-hunters must wear hunter orange during daylight hours at any time when firearm hunting for any species is authorized on the unit (except turkeys, waterfowl, and dove). For more details see the rules page for this WMA, the Summary of Fishing and Hunting Regulations and Public Hunting Lands Information and Maps.
Bicycling is a healthy and enjoyable activity that is available in many of the Wildlife Management Areas of Texas.
Bike riding is permitted on paved roads except during scheduled hunts.
A four-mile self-guided educational auto tour (paved road) is available to the public during daylight hours and takes visitors through various stops with kiosks which address wildlife, habitat and management techniques. The auto tour is not available during public hunt periods.
Fishing along the two miles of Guadalupe River front is covered by the Annual Public Hunting permit (APH).
Viewing wildlife is an enjoyable activity that is available in many of the Wildlife Management Areas of Texas.
