FREE Hunting & Fishing License!

Texas Parks & Wildlife provides FREE hunting and fishing licenses to 60% disabled veterans and active duty military members!

Below are the explanations for each condition:

The Texas Resident Active Duty Military Super Combo* Hunting and All-Water Fishing Package is available at no cost to Texas residents on active duty in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, Reserves, or National or State Guard.  Proof of residency for this license is: military service record(s) indicating that the person's home of record is in Texas or that the person's duty station for the six months immediately prior to the time of application is in Texas.

The Free Resident Disabled Veteran Super Combo* Hunting and All-Water Fishing Package is available at no cost to Texas residents qualifying as a disabled veteran. Disabled Veteran means a veteran with a service-connected disability, as defined by the Veterans Administration, consisting of the loss of the use of a foot or leg, or a disability rating of 60% or more and who is receiving compensation from the U.S. for the disability. Official proof of disability (issued by the VA) must be shown when applying for this license and must state the rate of disability.

*The “Super Combo” includes a Resident Hunting License, a Resident Fishing License and all 5 state stamp endorsements (archery, freshwater fishing, saltwater fishing with a red drum tag, upland game bird, and migratory game bird) at a discount price. The Federal Waterfowl Stamp is not included.

Update (Feb 5, 2014) from license@tpwd.texas.gov:
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recently changed the rules and requirements on our veteran license. The disabled veteran license is now available to residents and non-residents, if they meet the requirements, which are listed below.

Disabled Veteran "Super Combo" Hunting and All Water Fishing Package: Type 502: FREE The Disabled Veteran Super Combo license is issued to a resident or non-resident qualifying as a disabled veteran. Disabled veteran means a veteran with a service-connected disability, as defined by the Veterans Administration, consisting of the loss of the use of a foot or leg, or a disability rating of 60% or more, and who is receiving compensation from the U.S. for the disability. Official proof of disability (issued by the V.A.) must be shown when applying for this license and must state the rate of disability.

TPWD has approximately 1,650 license agents across the state that sell hunting and fishing licenses (Wal-Mart, Academy, etc.) at which you can purchase this license or at any Texas Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement Office. Because you have to show paperwork with your rating disability on it, this license is not available online or through our call center.

If you have any questions or need additional information, the License Team can be reached at 512-389-4820.
