Valid to hunt any legal bird or animal (terrestrial vertebrates). Stamp endorsement requirements apply. Required of any resident (see RESIDENT defined) unless the resident possesses a valid:Texas Migratory Game Bird Stamp Endorsement
Required to hunt any migratory game bird (waterfowl, coot, rail, gallinule, snipe, dove, sandhill crane and woodcock). A valid Federal Duck Stamp and HIP Certification are also required of waterfowl hunters 16 years of age or older. A free Federal Sandhill Crane Hunting Permit is required to hunt sandhill cranes. The permit is available:
in person only at TPWD Law Enforcement offices,
or by phone: (800) 792-1112.Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp
Required for all waterfowl hunters 16 years of age or older; available at most U.S. Post Offices, TPWD Law Enforcement offices, Austin headquarters and all license retail sales locations. The stamp must be signed on its face by the person using it. A valid hunting license, HIP Certification and a valid Texas Migratory Game Bird Stamp endorsement are also required.
Those are the 3 you will need to hunt waterfowl in general, Public Hunt Permit is extra.

TPWD wrote:What is HIP Certification and how do I obtain the free certification?
HIP Certification, stands for Harvest Information Program Certification. The data collected from the survey questions is provided to the US Fish and Wildlife Service which provides valuable information for the management of migratory game birds on a continental basis. This certification can be obtained from any license sales agent located throughout the state.
Simply tell them 0, you didn't harvest anything last year.
