New Online Drawn Hunts System

New Online Drawn Hunts System

This is Passport to Texas

In July the Texas Parks and Wildlife drawn hunt system entered the 21st Century when it moved completely online.

07— What I like about the system is everything works here real time. So, the moment you apply, you can see real-time what you have.

Kelly Edmiston, public hunting coordinator, says folks with hunting and fishing licenses or those who applied for drawn hunts in the past are already in the system.

19—If you are a previous customer, you can hit “check status” button; enter your last name and date of birth, and the customer number from your hunting or fishing license and find your account. You can see your loyalty points – or preference points – and see your history. And from there, you are allowed to just go right in and start applying for hunts, or browsing the catalog to see our available hunts.

The FAQ section on the drawn hunts webpage offers more ways to locate or create an account.

24—When you apply online and provide an email address, our customers are going to receive an email immediately after we do a drawing notifying them of their success. And, if they haven’t been successful they still can go online seven days a week, 24-hours a day to access their hunting information. Plus, if you’ve won, you’ll be able to pay for your permits online and get your permits sent to you by return email.
