 Hunters need to have:

  • Application
  • Waiver of Liability (original signature)
  • Self addressed envelope if you wish to have the permit mailed back to you. Otherwise it will be sent to the email address you put on the application.



New hunters will need to sign a waiver of liability prior to obtaining a hunting permit. All permitted hunters will receive a permit card and a vehicle tag. Hunters must have this card on their person and vehicle tag visible in their windshield when hunting at Whitney or Aquilla Lakes. By accepting this card hunters acknowledge receipt and understanding of hunting regulations and applicable state laws. Hunting without a valid hunting permit may constitute trespassing.
Aquilla Lake is also included in Whitney’s hunting program. Aquilla’s 4,000 acre hunt program was managed in the past by Texas Parks & Wildlife but is now under supervision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Aquilla’s hunting program will mirror Whitney’s hunting policies.

Hunter Activity Reports

 Reports must be entered by June 1, 2014 even if you did not hunt for the season. Failure to report activity within these guidelines may result in the hunter being blocked the following hunting season.

Please remember during hunting or any other recreational activity here at Whitney Lake, safety should always be paramount. Have a great time and again please be safe.
