Hunting & Fishing Licenses Go On Sale

    If you're itching to get your hunting and fishing activities kicked off the license needed to do so went on sale Friday. 

    Licenses may be purchased at a license retailer near you or they can be purchased by phone at 1-800-895-4248.

    We spoke with Eddie Hood with Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. about where the money for these licenses goes. 

    "The major portion of the licenses goes to maintaining our wildlife and fish populations out here as well as law enforcement, the enforcement of the seasons, the bag limits, and things such as that," Hood said.

    The printed transaction receipt or the printed email receipt will verify that a license has been purchased which is sufficient for dove hunting. But will not allow hunters to take fish or wildlife that require a tag.
