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.
Current as of 3/19/17
Please respect Texas' unique and beautiful wildlife by verifying current laws and ensuring you have the proper permits before you go hunting. Poaching is not tolerated.
"The museum focuses on the culture of the Great Plains Indians and even the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Apollo XII Moon mission in which Alan Bean, a native of Wheeler, was an astronaut. There are cowboy exhibits, pioneer weapons, a look at the nearby former United States Army base Fort Elliot as well as farm and ranch artifacts. On display are doctor and dentist offices, a general store, pioneer kitchen, schoolroom, and elegant parlor." - wikipedia.com
