Abstract: Presently every telescope at McDonald Observatory is utilized for the search for extrasolar planets. Here we give an overview of the precision Doppler surveys currently in progress at the 9.2 m Hobby-Eberly Telscope (HET) and the Harlan J. Smith 2.7 m telescope. Other planet search programs at McDonald Observatory include a transit search at the 0.8 m telescope (Baliber & Cochran 2003) and a project to detect planets orbiting stable pulsating white dwarfs (Mullally et al. 2003).
