The link is in our Public Hunting Lands sticky in the Land and Leases forum. A fairly complete list of texas public hunting areas is under that sticky post. I update the links for you guys every season, so most to all should be working. If you ever find a link in there not working or find one that should be added, send it to me in a pm and I will fix it. http://www.texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/348583
Below is the most recent PDF of hunting rules for the Ft Worth District Corps of Engineers. Texoma is in the Oklahoma, Tulsa district COE and so has different rules than the Texas, Ft Worth district lakes. http://www.swf.usace.army.mil/pubdata/ops/recnres/HUNT_GUIDE11-12.pdf
Can you guys tell me a little about predator hunting on Corps of Engineers land? Are electronic game calls legal? Can you hunt at night? Any special clothing requirements?
Each Lake has it's own rules and is in that pdf. But there are some Ft Worth district rules at the top of the rule book that apply to all Ft Worth district lakes. Cut and pasted to answer your questions and your not going to like the answers. Note also most all do not list predators as legal game, most do not allow rifles, and shotguns are limited to no larger than #2 shot.
14. What authorized (legal) game may be hunted on Corps of Engineers lands?
The only authorized game allowed to be taken is those game species listed in the “Legal
Game” section for each lake. Hunting game species not listed in the information guide is
prohibited, including species such as rattlesnakes, skunks, crows, English sparrows, grackles,
coyotes, javelina, etc. Note: Possession of manual or electronic varmint calling devices, baits or
lures is prohibited while hunting.
11. Must I wear hunter orange?
Corps Non-Permit Lakes: No, but the proper wearing of hunter orange is highly
recommended for hunter safety. Please refer to the information for Sam Rayburn Lake for
specific requirements on wearing hunter orange.
Corps Permit Lakes: Yes. Hunters (and anyone accompanying the hunter) must wear at
least 400 square inches of hunter orange material (144 square inches on both chest and back)
when hunting and are also required to wear some type of orange head wear. Hunters exempt
from this requirement are: persons hunting deer/turkey/feral hog during the archery only season
and persons hunting turkey, waterfowl, or migratory birds (except dove hunters during
concurrent hunts for quail).
