A valid Texas hunting license along with any required stamp endorsements is required in addition to the APH Permit to participate in hunting opportunities offered through the public hunting program. Please visit Licenses for more information.
Issued to an individual and valid from date of purchase through August 31 of that license year (Sept. 1-Aug. 31).
APH Permits are available at TPWD law enforcement offices and all license vendors (a place which sells hunting and fishing licenses) or by calling 1-800-TX-LIC-4U (menu choice 1 for license sales and paying by Visa, Discover or MasterCard). You can also purchase permits online. If the permit is purchased at a TPWD office, the Map Booklet will be provided immediately at the time of purchase; otherwise, publications will be mailed to the purchaser within two weeks of purchase.
Limited Public Use (LPU) Permit - $12
A Limited Public Use (LPU) Permit is also available and provides access to the same properties at the same times as the APH.
The LPU allows similar recreational activities covered by the APH, but does not authorize hunting.
