New Store Progress

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

IMG_1410We are so excited to share the progress we have made on the construction of our new store. As you can see in the photo, the foundation of the new Argyle Feed Store has been laid, and the walls are up! The location of our new store is directly behind our old location on 407. We are very excited to offer a number of new products in stock at our new location along with the brand new Garden Center. We expect this location to be open and operational very soon in the near future.

We are looking forward to building Argyle Feed Store into the one stop shop for all of your animal and gardening needs. Until our new store is operational, we are  operating a store front from 1865 McGee Lane in Lewisville, Texas 75077. If you would like to make an order, please call 940-241-2444 to schedule a pick up or delivery. We look forward to seeing you in our new store soon!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has approved the 2014-2015 Texas dove season, including a 70-day season and 15-bird daily bag statewide, and a 16-day early teal and Canada goose season.

The traditional September 1 dove season opening day in the North and Central Zones remains; this year falling on Labor Day Monday. However, the first segment in those zones will be shorter than last season, closing on Monday, Oct. 20. The season will reopen Friday, Dec. 19 and run through Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 in the North and Central Zones.

In the South Zone and Special White-winged Dove Area, the first segment will be shortened by five days compared to last year, and those days would be added to the end of the second segment. The South Zone opens Friday, Sept. 19 and runs through Monday, Oct. 20. The second segment will run Friday, Dec. 19 through Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015.

The daily bag limit for doves statewide is 15 and the possession limit is 45.

The Special White-winged Dove Area will be restricted to afternoononly (noon to sunset) hunting the first two full September weekends on Sept. 6-7 and 13-14. Hunting in this area will reopen Friday, Sept. 19 and continue through Monday, Oct. 20, and then reopen Friday, Dec. 19 through Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015. During the early two weekends, the daily bag limit is 15 birds, to include not more than two mourning doves and two white-tipped doves. Once the general season opens, the aggregate bag limit will be 15 with no more than two white-tipped doves.

A 16-day statewide early teal and Eastern Zone Canada goose season will run Saturday, Sept. 13 through Sunday, Sept. 28. The daily bag on teal remains six, with a possession limit of 18. Bag limit for Canada geese will be three and a possession limit of 6 in the Eastern Zone only.
