Wheeler County Hunting Information

Shamrock’s hunting attraction has grown tremendously due to an explosion of deer and turkey populations allowing our area to become one of the top hunting destinations in the Texas Panhandle.


North Zone Turkey season opens on April 1st, 2017 and Texas Parks and Wildlife reports that bird numbers are booming due to multiple years of mild weather.


Hunters may arrive by commercial airline (Shamrock is only 90 miles east of Rick Husband Airport in Amarillo); private aircraft (Shamrock Municipal Airport features a lighted 3,500’ runway); or vehicle, because Shamrock is conveniently located at the crossroads of America (I-40 and U.S. Hwy. 83). You may purchase a hunting license at Market Square Thriftway in Shamrock or Wheeler.
