Herd Unit Maps
Who can apply for permits?
- Landowners or Land Managers of properties within the state of Texas. Property should lie within a Pronghorn Herd Unit (see maps below). Landowner signature is required on all applications. Hunters can contact landowners regarding available permits by downloading the Pronghorn Lease List (BUCK, DOE). Current season lease information is usually available mid to late August.
How do I apply for permits?
- Contact your local Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Biologist for a Landowner Permit Application. Donít know your biologist? Find a Biologist in your area. Completed applications should be returned to your local biologist.
- Hunters interested in Pronghorn permits may download the Pronghorn Lease List (BUCK, DOE) for more information about available permits. Current season lease information is usually available mid to late August. Hunters should also check for hunts available through the Public Hunt Drawing System.
When do I apply?
- Applications are accepted throughout the year. To be eligible for a permit during the current hunting season, applications are requested by July 1st.
- Pronghorn permits are determined for specific tracts and are usually mailed to qualifying applicants in mid-August.
How many permits will I get?
- The number of permits issued within a Herd Unit is based upon results of annual surveys (pronghorn numbers, sex ratios, and fawn crops). Permits are allocated to specific tracts within a Herd Unit, which is directly related to acres of pronghorn habitat for each tract. Permit demand often exceeds the harvestable surplus, so not all landowners will receive a permit every year.
How much do permits cost?
- Permits are free. Receipt of permits is dependent upon timely submission of application and harvest cards. Applications must be submitted by August 1. Pronghorn Harvest Cards are due by October 31.
What is the Pronghorn Lease List?
- The TPWD Pronghorn Lease List (BUCK, DOE) is a list of landowners who have available permits and are willing to be contacted by hunters. When hunters call TPWD offices they will receive a list with contact information for all interested landowners.
- Landowners can indicate interest in being listed on the Pronghorn Lease List (BUCK, DOE) on the permit application form or contact their local TPWD biologist at any time.
