Thats real tricky around here.I finally just stopped going to the river game warden told a friend he could not shoot any firearms anywhere along the Brazos river in Palo Pinto county.This has been a real big debate around here for years.I guess the government won like always.

I know etiquett(?) not to ask where your spot is, so I am not going to. However, I am from the San Antonio area and was wondering if someone close would allow me to tag along on a river hunt to not only see how it is done and what not to do. In return, I can return the favor with at specklebelly/ snow goose hunt in peanut fields that i have access to.

noone has an answer when it comes to where the boundaries are here either. i have always heard that it is fence to fence, but game warden said to be safe, i should just stay inside cutbanks of the river bed. in some places this could be as much as 75 yards to the fence to about 10 yards of the fence.

The Gradient Boundary

For assistance with accessibility on any TPWD documents, please contact accessibility@tpwd.state.tx.us

Texas courts have adopted the “gradient boundary” as the usual dividing line between public ownership of a stream’s bed and lower bank area, and private ownership of the higher bank area and the uplands beyond. Thus, there is generally no question as to the public’s right to use the bank area up to the gradient boundary. Sometimes called the “mean” gradient boundary, it is located midway between the lower level of the flowing water that just reaches the so-called “cut bank,” and the higher level of the flowing water that just does not overtop the cut bank. The cut bank is located at the outer edge of a stream’s bed, separating the bed from the adjacent upland and confining the waters to a definite channel. Surveying the gradient boundary is a complex task performable only by specially trained persons.

 We have one foot above the cut banks,on normal flow,

We hunted geese on the Brazos in Knox county years ago.  The game warden didn't like it very much but it was legal so there was nothing he could do.  The problem he saw, that we eventually figured out, was if we had to go down the river bed very far to hunt there were others watching that same bed for feral hogs.  That could very easily have created a dangerous situation if a hog had crossed between us and the other hunters.  The bed was narrow and hogs (down there at least) moved fast across any open terrain.  Hunters, even good ones, could very easily have missed that we were downrange.

I'd be very, very careful.
