Finally TPWD (Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept.) has opened a "Muzzleloader Only" season for white-tail [in the two counties that I generally hunt]. The two weeks following general season. I have been corresponding with directors and other officials for close to seven years on this matter. I know that single handedly I am not responsible for making this happen, but I like to believe that I did or at least had some part in it.
So if any fellow Texans out there have been waiting for this to happen you can check out

to see if your county(s) have been added as well.
