So, I see the same thing you guys are seeing in the paper publication: antlerless is legal during archery season. But, if you look at the same publication, Texas Outdoor Annual, which is available as an app from Google Play - go to Wise County and this is the text...
"Anlerless Deer:
On USFS lands, the take of antlerless deer is prohibited except from Thanksgiving Day
through the Sunday immediately following Thanksgiving Day. Nov. 23-26."

For whatever reason, I can't post a screenshot of that page from the Outdoor Annual. Perhaps I'm too new to the forum or just can't figure out how. But if someone will download the app and confirm what I'm seeing. It is the 2017 - 2018 version that I'm looking at. Now, with that said, I would swear that this paragraph that I quoted above, was not in that app 3 weeks ago. Three weeks ago, after studying the information, I came to the conclusion that antlerless deer are legal during archery season. Now, I see this paragraph, that I don't think was there 3 weeks ago, saying the opposite. We need to get a straight answer before Saturday morning.

I have it saved jbowman. But there's still a question about which one is correct - The Outdoor Annual Publication or the Outdoor Annual phone app. I called the LBJ District Office just a few minutes ago and they are aware of the conflict that exist between the publication and the app, but even they are struggling to get a straight answer and could only advise that I contact the TPWD. So that's what I'll do. Will update later.

Ok guys. Here is a summary of what's going on?
There are 4 sources of information that we get our hunting and fishing regs from
1. The print version (pamphlet) of the Texas Outdoor Annual
2. The .pdf version of the Texas Outdoor Annual
3. The phone app version of the Texas Outdoor Annual, available from Google Play
4. The TPWD website
#'s 1 and 2 say this: IT IS LEGAL TO TAKE A DOE ON USFS LAND IN WISE COUNTY DURING ARCHERY SEASON
#'s 3 AND 4 say this: IT IT ILLEGAL TO TAKE A DOE ON USFS LAND IN WISE COUNTY DURING ARCHERY SEASON

These sources are in conflict with one another! So which one is correct? According to the wildlife biologist at the LBJ field office in Decatur, #1 and 2 are correct. The Print Version and the .pdf version are correct. IT IS LEGAL TO HARVEST ANTLERLESS DEER DURING ARCHERY SEASON ON USFS LAND.

Why does this conflict exist? Basically, someone in the programming department made a mistake. Someone made an entry to the phone app (#3) and the TPWD website (#4) that is in error. These errors are supposed to be corrected by tomorrow afternoon so that all 4 sources of information match.

All doe be warned - you are fair game come sunrise Saturday morning.
Happy hunting guys.

I just spoke with TPWD and the official stated you CAN shoot antlerless in accordance with the OUTDOOR ANNUAL booklet for Wise and Montague counties. Page 94 and 87. (He also recognized that there was a lot confusion as stated in earlier posts.)

Good luck everyone. Looks like I will be attempting a hunt out there this month.

Question: Do any of you use a bike once you've parked? Is this a good method of transport? I use mine at Hagerman and it works perfectly. Thanks!

I do not but most of my spots do not have a nice trail to ride down, especially at especially in the dark. I think it would be more of a hazard for me. If that wasn't the case though I would definitely do it.

Thanks Rich1201

AT Hagerman I park car, then bike about 1.5 miles in (on straight road where no motor traffic is allowed), then secure the bike, and usually another .5 mile on foot. Not having been there, I'm hoping that is what LBJ is similar to.

Hey all, newbie here. I've been lurking on the thread and figured it was time to join.

Hunted opening morning and had deer move by me about 30min before legal hours. I was just happy to be in the right place if just maybe at the wrong time. Later in the morning, I heard some gunshots near the entrance. Found a man who had just bought a gun doing some target shooting. Is this kind of thing something y'all see very often?

Definitely for scouting, but not for hunting. Too much gear to tote.

The bands are from a research project TPWD did in the area. This turkey was trapped and banded in 2015. She also was fitted with a radio transmitter with a gps onboard, but it fell off previously.

Went and sat out yesterday till dark. Had 2 groups of pigs and 8 deer, all doe and a spike, come by at 20 yards. I wanted to shoot until I realized I forgot my game cart. Ain't no way I was dragging anything that far in that heat.

I'm in no rush. I'm in a great spot that I haven't seen any other signs of humans out there.

No. As a matter of fact, if it wasn't a shotgun or muzzle loader, it was illegal to be shooting on the lbj.

Pretty sure I heard a handgun. I only saw him with a shotgun though. He was so nonchalant that I began to suspect it was accepted practice. I dug up the fines online and saving them in case I run into that again.

Default Wearing orange

When on a LBJ website, one topic was that wearing orange is required when bow hunting.
I have not been wearing orange when bow hunting. Could of sworn it was not mandatory. Must pay better attention.
Any one aware of this?

I believe only if there is a gun hunt you must wear orange but i may be mistaken.

That is what I thought also.
When looking at hunting regulations at LBJ, there was a FAQ link.
That is where I saw the rule, just cannot remember exactly where on the web.

Just reading the rules online.
Only turkey hunting, and migratory bird hunters are exempt from wearing orange. Cannot see a reason for orange during bow season, I need to call Decatur.
The websight also said since rabbit and sqiurrel hunting is year round onsome units ( as LBJ is ) everyone, even hikers, are required to wear orange because hunting can occur year round.
Wish I could tell how old these web sites are...

Took this off TPWD Website...What You Need to Know
Public Hunting in Texas 2017-18...Hunter Orange •fails to visibly wear at least 400 square inches of hunter orange material with orange headwear and at least 144 square inches appearing on both chest and back during daylight hours at times when hunting with firearms is permitted. Exempt from these requirements are: (1) authorized department personnel and landowner employees, (2) persons hunting turkey or migratory game birds, (3) persons within the enclosed passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, (4) persons within a designated campground, designated vehicle parking area, designated boat launching facility or departmental check station, and (5) persons other than hunters on COE properties.

Notice: to archery hunters and recreational users: You must wear hunter orange during daylight hours at any time when firearm hunting for any species is authorized on the unit. Many units allow firearm hunting year-round for rabbits, and firearm hunts for squirrel and dove often are conducted concurrently with archery deer hunts.

This is correct. Hunter Orange is not required during archery season.

261.58(v) Hunting or accompanying a hunter during any permitted hunting season without wearing 400 square inches of daylight fluorescent orange, with a minimum of 144 square inches visible on both chest and back and daylight fluorescent headwear.

Exceptions:
1. When hunting turkey, migratory birds, fur-bearing animals

2. During archery season on Lyndon B. Johnson National

Click on the link jbowman posted and become familiar with all the Forest Supervisor's Orders. I'm guessing they have not updated the FS website.

No target shooting of any kind is allowed out there. No pellet, pistols, or rim fires either.

I've been retarded for 5 1/2 years. My guess was based on my on the job experience with federal gov't ineptitude.

I called Decatur this morning about wearing orange, and the differences on the web sights.
The lady told me to call TPWD, as she said they make all the rules.(????)
I also asked about the Jan. 8-21 late gun season, if does were legal, and she had no idea.
I guess I will have to go on a road trip to find someone working there that knows there own rules.

The state does not require orange for hunting at all in Texas. Whose call is it that it is mandatory for gun season? Now I am getting really confused.

The lady that normally answers the phone retired last week. I'm speculating that the new person has not had time to be trained and does not know all of the answers yet.

The U.S. Forest Service. It's in the Forest Supervisor's Orders posted above.

There is some misinformation in post 294. The Forest Service regulates occupancy and use. TPWD and the Forest Service work together to establish the hunting regulations on FS lands. TPWD regulates the bag and size limits.

Hope this helps.

For those in question, and if your wise, I'd listen to this feller ^^^, since he retired from there and wore "green jeans".

Been hunting there since the early 80's.
Just want to make sure to follow all the rules.
Hope we have JBJ for many years to come.
