Welcome to the Joint Base San Antonio Hunting Program

The lottery for the 2018-2019 WTD Season has already been drawn. At this time there are no options for hunting white-tailed deer if you do not already hold a WTD Permit. If you still wish to hunt other animals please purchase a General Permit, which can be used to harvest any of the animals listed in the regulations (except WTD). **If you are new to JBSA please create an account. You will then be able to see your permit purchasing options.**

UPDATES:  12 DEC 2018 - THE SCHEDULE FOR THIS WEEKEND HAS BEEN REPOSTED. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD WE WILL ONLY RECEIVE A 14 DAY SCHEDULE FOR THE REST OF THIS SEASON. WE WILL UPDATE HERE IF THAT CHANGES.

10 DEC 2018 - THE ARMY SUPPORT ACTIVITY (ASA) ,WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR APPROVING OUR HUNTING/SCOUTING SCHEDULE IN RFMSS, HAS INFORMED US THAT WE MUST CHANGE THE WAY WE SCHEDULE HUNTING. WE ARE STILL TRYING TO WORK OUT THE DETAILS AND WILL POST UPDATES HERE. WE EXPECT THE SCHEDULE WILL LOOK DIFFERENT AND MAY NOT BE PROJECTED 21-DAYS OUT. AT THIS TIME WE ARE WAITING TO SEE WHAT HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR 13-17 DECEMBER.

WTD HUNTING SEASON HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO 27 JANUARY 2019. ALL EQUIPMENT (BLINDS, FEEDERS, CAMERAS, ETC.) MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE FIELD BY 31 JANUARY 2018 AS THE NATURAL RESOURCES OFFICE IS EXPECTING TO CONDUCT PRESCRIBED BURNS DURING FEBRUARY 2019.

27 NOV 2018 - COLLARED WTD MAY ONLY BE HARVESTED BY WTD PERMIT HOLDERS. HARVEST MAY HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY REGUARDLESS OF SEX. COLLARED WTD DO NOT COUNT TOWARD THE QUOTA. THE DEER MUST HAVE THE COLLAR ATTACHED WHEN THE BIOLOGIST ARRIVES AT CHECK-OUT. 

24 NOV 2018 - THIS IS A REMINDER TO NOT USE YOUR TEXAS WTD HUNTING PERMIT TAGS ON DEER HARVESTED FROM CAMP BULLIS.THE BIOLOGIST WHO CHECKS IN YOUR DEER AT RNGRC WILL SUPPLY A MANAGED LAND DEER PROGRAM (MLDP) TAG FOR YOUR HARVESTED WTD UPON CHECK-OUT.

 

WE HAVE HAD TO CUT NATURAL RESOURCES STAFF HOURS INDEFINITELY. BECAUSE OF THIS WE WILL ONLY HAVE ONE PERSON AVAILABLE TO CHECK OUT HARVESTED GAME ON WEEKENDS. THIS PERSON HAS ADDITIONAL DUTIES OUTSIDE OF THE HUNTING PROGRAM AND MAY BE IN THE FIELD. IF YOU WISH TO HAVE A SHORTER WAIT TIME TO BE CHECKED OUT PLEASE NOTIFY RNGRC WHEN YOU LOCATE YOUR HARVESTED ANIMAL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

* THIS IS A GENERAL REMINDER THAT WE HAVE LIMITED CONTROL OF WHAT AREAS ARE OPEN AND WHEN THEY ARE OPEN. WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO SCHEDULE AREAS THAT ARE NOT ALREADY SCHEDULED 21 DAYS OUT. IN THAT 21 DAY WINDOW WE MAY HAVE TO CLOSE BECAUSE A DEPLOYING TRAINING UNIT MUST USE THE AREA. WE ALSO HAVE NO CONTROL OVER WEATHER AND FLOODING. WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO KEEP EVERYTHING OPEN AND TO ENSURE YOU HAVE AS MANY OPPORTUNITIES AS POSSIBLE.

Make sure that you bring the following with you to hunt or scout:

  • TWO (2) COPIES OF YOUR JBSA PERMIT - ONE (1) TO LEAVE WITH RNGRC AND ONE (1) TO KEEP ON YOUR PERSON, if you have a WTD archery circle make sure your assigned circle is on your permit.
