First Harvest

Any hunter (regardless of age) who harvests his/her first lifetime big game animal (white-tailed deer, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, or javelina) in the State of Texas during the current year's hunting season is eligible for recognition. Any big game animal (subject to animals listed above), regardless of sex or score, is eligible.  A hunter may receive a First Harvest Certificate only once during his/her lifetime.


Entry into multiple categories - Any individual who has a qualifying "Scored Entry" and is also eligible for either the First Big Game Harvest category or Youth Division may receive certificates for both categories.  Separate applications are required.  An individual may not receive both a First Big Game Harvest certificate and a Youth Division certificate during the same program year.  Youth who enter the First Big Game Harvest category will not receive a Youth Division certificate during that program year.
