Deer hunting is illegal on Lavon Lake USACE property:

As part of Lavon Lake's Natural Resource Management plan our goal is to manage for a sustainable White Tail Deer population. At this time there is no biological data supporting a deer harvest for the management of a sustainable population. Until further notice deer hunting, harvesting, and taking by any means are illegal on Lavon Lake USACE property. We will continue to work with Texas Parks & Wildlife in efforts to quantify on-site populations and implement harvest criteria when supportable census data presents itself.

Permits: All hunters 17 years of age and older must obtain a permit. Hunters 16 and under are not required to obtain a permit, but must be with a permitted adult. All hunters hunting independently must have a permit, as well as hunter's education.
