Permits for white-tailed deer hunting are issued through a public lottery draw conducted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
According to the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge website, “Hunters help maintain wildlife populations that can potentially destroy habitat important to many other wildlife species, including the golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo. While enjoying this traditional, recreational activity, hunters help manage these lands for the benefit of wildlife and (visitors).”
