ANNUAL PERMIT MEETING
Saturday, September 23, 9:00AM at the Community Center
ORWMA Dues $20 / Deer Hunt Participation Fee $20
There are several new regulations that will impact hunters at Oakridge that will be discussed at this meeting
Due to a change in TPWD regulations ORWMA will be responsible for printing the doe permits and will have them at this meeting
A list of deer checkers with their contact information will be provided at the meeting.
If you don’t attend this meeting and pickup your permits then they will be available by appointment only
September 30, 2017 to February 28, 2018
Does may be taken with a MLD permit only
Does may be harvested with any legal means (firearm, bow, crossbow, muzzle loader etc.) during this season.
All does must be checked in with an ORWMA deer checker or the TPWD biologist. The deer must be field dressed when checked in.
You will receive a replacement permit each time you check in a doe.
The TPWD seasons, restrictions, and bag limits for Colorado County apply. For example: September 30 – November 3 is Archery Only Season, Bucks may only be harvested with archery equipment. Youth, General, and Muzzleloader seasons and restrictions all apply to buck harvest.
All bucks must be checked in with an ORWMA deer checker or the TPWD biologist. The deer must be field dressed when checked in.
Bucks are tagged with a tag from your hunting license.
If you have any questions feel free to give me a call.
Whitetail Deer Chairman
ORWMA will be hosting our Annual Whitetail Deer Spotlight Census in August this year. The census dates are as follows:
1. Sat – Aug 12: We will gather at 7:15PM. The trucks will be on the start line at 8:PM. Anyone who does not ride in one of the trucks may stay and visit while trucks are out.
2. Sat – Aug 19: There may be a spot or two still available in one of the pick-up trucks for counting, but come on anyway and just sit and talk.
3. Friday – Aug 25: Gather at 7:15PM. Trucks on start line at 8:PM. Visit while trucks are out if you’re not counting.
The numbers are added to the individual landowner totals and turned in on September 1st to our TPWD Wildlife Biologist. These numbers help determine the number of doe tags Oakridge Ranch Wildlife Management Association receives for the upcoming Whitetail Deer Season.
We will meet at the Trickett’s house, 1278 Oakridge Rd. You may bring a beverage and/or snack of your choice.
Please contact Jim Trickett if you would like to drive or participate in the count. Jim’s number is 281-507-7572.
This is a class being offered to all in Colorado County. Since Oakridge Ranch has won the Lone Star Land Steward Award, this will be of particular interest to Oakridge Ranch landowners. Hope to see you there!
