AUSTIN In preparation for the Nov. 4 opening of general deer hunting season, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has updated the My Texas Hunt Harvest mobile app with a new Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Zone information tool.
The interactive map tool allows hunters to view zone boundaries and tap any location in the state to determine if it is in or near a CWD Zone.
TPWD has implemented several new CWD zones since last hunting season, so hunters across the state can use the app to stay aware of new boundaries and determine if their harvest was in a zone.
Other features of the free app include:
- Display an electronic copy of your license
- Complete mandatory hunt harvest reporting
- Log your harvested game species
- View your harvest history on your smartphone or tablet
- After a one-time login, you can easily access your TPWD customer number for future reference
- Save and retrieve harvest history, even if you replace or reset your device
Users who have automatic updates for apps turned off on their devices will need to manually update their apps before they can use the new features.
