From the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department - Prospects Good for Texas Deer Season

White tailed deer from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website Austin, Texas – If early field reports by bow hunters and those hunting on Managed Lands Deer Permit properties are a sign of things to come, Texas hunters should see deer in good condition and above average numbers of mature bucks when the general season kicks off Nov. 1 statewide.

“I had a report of a bow hunter in Walker County connecting on a buck that scored 163 B&C (Boone & Crockett scoring system),” said Alan Cain, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department White-tailed Deer Program Leader. “It turns out it was the hunter’s first time to bow hunt. I got another report of a 183 B&C buck harvested in Atascosa County on a low-fenced MLD property.”

From the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources - DWR to release 11,000 pheasants

This season might be the perfect season to hunt pheasants in Utah. Thousands of pheasants will be released on public hunting areas before the hunt opens on Nov. 1. - Photo by Ron Stewart
Salt Lake City, Utah - If it's been years since you hunted pheasants, it's time to grab your gun and head afield. More than 11,000 pheasants will be released on 56 public hunting areas during Utah's upcoming pheasant hunt.

The hunt opens on Nov. 1. But you don't have to hunt that day to get in on the action — pheasants will be released before each weekend of the hunt.

The one exception is the week of Thanksgiving. That week, birds will be released early in the week so plenty of pheasants will be available to pursue over the Thanksgiving holiday.
