2019-2020 Pronghorn Seasons & Regulations

Regular Season
Sept. 28 - Oct. 6, 2019

Pronghorn May be Harvested by Permit Only

The harvest of pronghorn is by permit only. The permit must be completely filled out and attached to the pronghorn immediately following harvest. Permits are issued to landowners or their agents in areas where there are hunt-able populations (the Trans-Pecos, Permian Basin and Panhandle); however, TPWD is testing an experimental, buck-only season in selected areas of the Panhandle where hunters MUST obtain a free Experimental Pronghorn Permit directly from TPWD or a participating local merchant (not from the landowner). Hunters must still obtain landowner consent to hunt (killing a pronghorn without landowner consent is a felony, see Hunting Laws, Penalties & Restitution for unlawful activities). Additionally, hunters must present the entire head (intact) of any harvested pronghorn at a designated check station within 24 hours of take. For more information on the experimental season, including maps, locations where permits may be obtained, and locations of mandatory check stations see information about pronghorn permits and harvest reports.

NOTE: It is the hunter’s responsibility to verify the permits are issued to the property where they are hunting.
