Texas questions...

Postby Everyday Hunter » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:58 pm

I just booked a flight to Texas to hunt there in November. We'll be hunting whitetails, axis deer, and wild pigs. I've always wanted to shoot a pig with a handgun, so I hope to take a handgun. Are there regulations I need to know? Gotta check on how to get the handgun there, but I think I can do it (flying from Cleveland to San Antonio). My handgun choice is a Kimber Crimson Carry 1911 (4" barrel with laser sights).
Are you permitted to use a semi-auto in Texas?
A semi-auto with a laser dot sight?
Would deer be legal with this gun?

For whitetails I'm taking my 7mm-08 and a bow.

Thanks. Any other info on hunting Texas would be appreciated.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

I asked a friend of mine who lives/hunts in Texas and he said that you can use ANY firearm for pigs, and any caliber higher than a .22 for deer and turkey. Happy hunting!
