I got one today and will fill out later. I don't remember filling out my email on my hunting license purchase. So i'm not sure how they got it.

So they are looking at no license at all to go afield with bow or rifle and kill pigs?

You'd still need landowner permission on private land and the rules for the various public lands would apply.

I just finished my survey, fwiw I stated I was all for poisons IF they could be proved to not effect other animals and there was some way to know if the meat was contaminated.

I seriously doubt that there are very many that will hunt pigs now that didn't already have a hunting license for other species.

agree, seems like a law to lose money and not benefit texans much, unless there are a lot of land owners out there without hunting licenses already.
