Proctor Lake Hunting Program


Hunters may harvest waterfowl, dove, squirrels, rabbits, and feral hog at Proctor Lake with a free permit obtained from the Lake Office. This permit allows a permit-holder and up to two (2) guests to hunt the Sabana Wildlife Management Area, Upper Leon Wildlife Management Area, and Rush Creek Hunting Area. A permit is not required to hunt waterfowl on the main lake.

New hunters can obtain a permit application form by either visiting the Proctor Lake Office or by clicking here. New hunters can apply in one of two ways: in-person or by mail. Applicants wishing to apply in person should visit the Proctor Lake Office (2180 HWY 2861, Comanche, TX 76442) during normal business hours. They must bring a driver's license and either a hunter's safety card or valid Texas hunting license. Applicants wanting to apply via mail should complete a permit application and send it, along with a self-addressed envelope with valid postage, a copy of their driver's license and either their hunter's safety card or a valid Texas hunting license to the Proctor Lake Office. All copies provided will be destroyed immediately after the permit is issued.

Hunters who held a permit the previous year can automatically renew their permit by completing the online 2022-2023 Proctor Lake Hunting Program Survey. Only individuals who held a permit the previous year can renew their permit in this manner. Hunters who had a permit within the last 5 years can email a completed application to the Hunting Program Coordinator. All others must apply either in person or via mail.
