The 1,484 acre Garner State Park is operated by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and is located in the Texas Hill Country in Uvalde County. The park participates in TPWD’s public hunting lands program and usually offers hunting for white-tailed deer and other exotic deer species such as axis and fallow. The park is located 31 miles north of Uvalde and 7 miles north of Concan on U.S. Highway 83 to FM 1050.
Hunters from across the state know that Garner State Park hold lots of wildlife, so it is a coveted hunting area for public hunters. The area surrounding the park is also known for great whitetail hunting, turkey hunting, and dove hunting. Because the park is located along the Frio River, this area usually serves as a haven for for animals located in this bottomland-dominated habitat, except during the Special Permit (draw) hunts held each fall.
The habitat found within the park consists of steep limestone hills and dense juniper and oak woodlands. The river is the dominant feature running through the park, but game will “sink” into this area from the surrounding uplands. Every part of this park offers great public hunting for native and non-native deer species. It is also a great place to vacation and relax outside of hunting season. Camping within Garner State Park will be available for the hunters during hunts. For information of public hunting or Garner State Park, contact the park at 830-232-6132.
