Hunting

Hunting is one of the priority recreational uses on National Wildlife Refuges and compatible with the mission of this refuge. Hunters help manage feral hogs, exotic and invasive species that destroy habitat important to many other wildlife species. While enjoying this traditional, recreational activity, hunters help manage these lands for the benefit of wildlife and you.

Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge has our General (which includes rifle, archery, and muzzleload) and Upland Game hunts available on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department "Drawn Hunts" system pageTPWD Drawn Hunts.  The TPWD Drawn Hunt for the refuge is for deer/hog and squirrel/rabbit only.  

The refuge's waterfowl hunt for the 2021/2022 season is now available HERE

Please NOTE: The Waterfowl hunts will be CLOSED CHRISTMAS DAY AND NEW YEARS DAY

You can still contact the refuge concerning questions about all our hunts, but any question concerning the Drawn Hunts for Big Game and Upland Game must go through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Website (link above). PLEASE READ ALL THEIR INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
