Guadalupe River State Park in Spring Branch will close at 10 p.m. Friday for scheduled public hunts and reopen at noon on Thursday, Dec. 9.

Only drawn hunters will be allowed in the popular park.

“The hunts will be conducted for white-tailed deer,” said Megan Radke,  TPWD spokesperson. “Hunters are allowed two deer, one antlerless, one buck, but hunters are also able to harvest exotic/non-native mammals like axis deer and feral hogs as well.

“The first couple of day hunts are youth hunters only,” she said. “All hunters will go through an orientation before their hunts and will be in assigned blinds.”

The remote Bauer Unit is included in the closure.

The park is a popular destination for area visitors. It includes four miles of Guadalupe River frontage, 85 water-and-electric campsites and nine walk-in tent sites, 13 miles of hike-and-bike trails and a Discovery Center.
