Hunter Registration Begins July 7
Big Thicket National Preserve staff will begin issuing hunting permits for the 2014-2015 season on July 7, 2014, at the Preserve visitor center. The visitor center is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily. Please call 951-6700 for more information.
The Preserve is composed of 15 units (land and water) spread over 7 counties, so one has to drive to each unit they wish to visit. There is no public transportation in this area. Some units are accessible only by boat. The Official Map and Guide to Big Thicket National Preserve will assist greatly with navigation.
