Dogs to Trail Wounded Deer

Use of Dogs Only to Trail Wounded Deer Approved in 12 More Texas Counties

AUSTIN – Hunters will be allowed to use up to two dogs only to trail a wounded deer in 12 additional counties in East Texas during the 2013-14 deer season under a rule change approved by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission.

The rule change does not legalize the use of dogs to hunt, pursue or take deer; that practice remains illegal statewide in Texas. Hunters are allowed to use up to two dogs only for the purpose of trailing a wounded deer in all but 10 Texas counties. Counties where the practice of trailing wounded deer with dogs remains prohibited include: Angelina, Hardin, Jasper, Nacogdoches, Newton, Orange, Sabine, San Augustine, Shelby and Tyler.
