The Outdoor Annual: Now All-Digital
For generations, the Outdoor Annual was the trusted regulations booklet kept in the glove compartments and tackle boxes of millions of Texas hunters and anglers. Due to the pandemic and the resulting economic downturn, the Texas Outdoor Annual Hunting, Fishing and Boating Regulations will be all-digital for the 2020–21 license year. Fortunately, the Outdoor Annual products are tried and true and already in use by millions of Texas hunters and anglers.
The OutdoorAnnual.com website and the Texas Outdoor Annual mobile app make it easy to find everything you need to know before you go. Check out the latest information on bag limits and season dates by animal and by county, chronic wasting disease zones, fishing bag and length limits by water body, places to fish and more. The website is mobile-friendly, offering maps, images and useful links, plus a downloadable PDF for printing any page.
The mobile app has all the functions of the website and more. After downloading the app, you won’t need an internet connection to view regulations — it works even in the most remote locations. View your current or past hunting/fishing licenses, find location-based information on hunting seasons or places to fish or launch the My Texas Hunt Harvest app to digitally report your harvest or check in at public hunting sites.
