Nomad Hunts FAQ’s

The Nomad Hunts FAQ’s section is constantly evolving, please check back for updates before your hunt. On a regular basis we are asked the same questions by hunters. So this section will cover some of the most frequently asked questions.

What license do I as an out of state hunter?

Texas parks and wildlife website has all the information . Your license can be purchased online, or it can be purchased at one of our local retailers. If you buy it online a hard copy will be sent to you in the mail. The state recently passed a bill allowing you to use a picture of the license to show proof instead of a hard copy.

However you will need your hard copy when you harvest you game species. Upon successful harvest the correct tag will be filled out and placed on the animal. The harvest log on the back of the license has to be filled out as well.

Will I need my hunters safety course?

The answer is yes. You will be able to purchase a license with out it but the state requires you carry while hunting and a warden will ticket you if you can not produce it when asked.

What happens when a hunter harvests their animal?

Our guides will gut skin and quarter your animal. It is the hunters choice to either put it on ice in coolers or take it to a local meat processor. Many states have laws that require specific handling practices before an animal can come across state lines.

Do Your Homework

Please do your homework as it is not our responsibility to make sure it’s done to your state requirements. We would hate to see you loose the trophy of a lifetime.

Can meat be shipped?

We work with one processor who can and will ship meat inside the U.S. however it is not cheap.

Can I donate the meat from my hunt?

Yes we work with a local non profit that uses the donated meat in the local community where it is needed most.

Do you have and or recommend a local taxidermist?

Nomad Hunts use and recommend TNT taxidermy for all of our needs. His work is amazing it’s not the cheapest however his work is amazing when finished. If you choose to use TNT, a deposit is required at drop off and balance upon completion. We will have a price list in our lodge so you can look at his work and prices.

If I wound an animal am I responsible for it?

Yes if you shoot an animal and do not recover it the hunter is responsible for the full cost of that animal. Our guides will determine if the animal was hit and that will be the final decision.
