 Click to view the summary of results for the 2016 Archery Deer Hunt at Hagerman NWR.

Is shed hunting allowed at the Refuge?  No, shed hunting is prohibited; this 
  • Helps prevent poaching.
  • Prevents sale for commercial profit, which is illegal without a permit.
  • Shed antlers, which are used by rodents for gnawing to keep their teeth at a normal length, play a role in the health of the overall ecosystem.

Are Crossbows allowed?

Crossbows are not legal to use during the Hagerman NWR archery deer hunts unless you have a permanent disability and a specific letter from your doctor stating you are unable to hunt with a bow.  If this is the case please call the refuge at 903 786 2826 and we will work with you to get a special use permit for this purpose.

Don't Pick Up Strangers

By "strangers", we mean Invasive species - non-native plants, animals, and micro-organisms that damage the lands and waters our native plants and animals need to survive. Everyone needs to be part of the fight against invasive species. By following these  easy steps, together, we can stop the spread of invasive species.

Help Prevent The Spread of Invasive Plants And Animals
• REMOVE plants, animals & mud from boots, gear, boat & trailer.
• CLEAN your gear before entering & leaving the recreation site.
• DRAIN bilge, ballast, wells & buckets before you leave the area.
• DRY equipment before launching into another body of water.
• DISPOSE of unwanted bait in a sealed container.
• USE CERTIFIED or local firewood & hay.
A Guide to Wildlife & Plant Protection Laws

 U.S. laws that protect wildlife and plants generally address the removal of species in the wild as well as commercialization in any form – whether alive or dead, or as parts or manufactured products.  Click here to read an overview of the laws, from USFWS.

Stop the Spread!

Zebra mussels have invaded North Texas Lakes.  Click here for video on how boaters can stop the spread.
