In Texas, hunting is more than a sport; it’s part of our heritage. TPWF helps support opportunities for youth to learn the values of patience, perseverance, and respect for nature.
TPWD and Texas Wildlife Association have established the Texas Youth Hunting Scholarship Program to increase youth interest in wildlife and hunting activities. Overseen by experienced volunteers, the program offers affordable weekend hunts that teach critical outdoor skills, safety, wildlife management, personal responsibility, and respect for private property. Youth participants are able to have fun while learning about natural resource conservation and management from game wardens, biologists, landowners, experienced hunters, and hunter education instructors.
