    The only game animals in Texas are deer, antelope, sheep, squirrel, and javelina

    I get coons, hog, rabbit, coyote, and when I have a valid furbearing license, fox, cougar, and bob cat..... I love night hunts and take it to heart to know my local laws about it,,, thanks though for bringing it up as its good for others to know that in some places its illegal to use artificial light for any hunt.

    That's also why I stated I love "varmint" hunting at night,,, "varmint" meaning not game animal

    Spotlighting on private land (with the owners permission) in Texas is legal. This DOES NOT include county roads and highways. Nor does it include game animals such as Deer. Non-game animals such as Rabbits, hogs, racoons, etc. are legal to spotlight. You must have a Texas hunting license even for non-game animals.

    From the Texas Parks and Wildlife website....

    "Non-protected nongame animals and fur-bearing animals may be hunted at night with the aid of an artificial light on private property. If hunting at night, please make a courtesy telephone call to your local game warden. "

    You have over $1000 in a .22!?! That's some serious cash if I were you, I would by something for cheap like a ruger 10 22, and get a good quality 5.56 mm ar 15.

    Nice I've never been a "tacticool" shooter but I have a rock river ar 15in 5.56 it's got a blackhawk quad rail, and tango down battle grips. I don't run an optic. I use my ruger mini 14 more than the ar, the do pretty much the same thing.
