System maintenance to affect hunting license sales

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - State officials say no hunting and fishing licenses will be available for purchase between 9 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. the following morning because the licensing system will be down for maintenance.

Texas Parks and Wildlife announced Thursday that Texans hoping to hunt or fish Sunday should purchase their licenses before 9 p.m. Saturday.

The agency said it doesn't expect maintenance delays. Still, it said it may be necessary for those wanting to hunt or fish Monday to also purchase licenses prior to 9 p.m. Saturday.

Hunting and fishing licenses are sold at retail outlets, online or by phone at 1-800-895-4248.
