Statewide Public Meeting Proposals Updated

AUSTIN, Texas — A slate of 22 public meetings across the state, set to begin Feb. 25, will include numerous proposed changes to hunting and fishing regulations for the 2008-2009 season.

Among those proposals is one to extend the use of lawful archery equipment for harvest of catfish through Aug. 31, 2011.

The change to allow the use of lawful archery equipment, including cross bows, was due to expire August 31, 2008. TWPD Inland Fisheries Division biologists are still in the process of evaluating the impact of the regulation on catfish populations.

For a complete list of other proposed regulation changes for both hunters and anglers, and a calendar of public meetings, please visit the TPWD Web site.
