In response to a declining number of youth hunters in the state, the Texas Wildlife Association and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department organized the Texas Youth Hunting Program (TYHP) in 1996. To date, TYHP has provided over 79,226 Texans with safe, educational, outdoor experiences while instilling an appreciation for the valuable role private landowners and hunters play in wildlife conservation.
The Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) have joined forces to offer youth hunts that are safe, educational, and very affordable. We sponsor introductory, instructive youth hunts for a variety of species. We provide mentors, lodging, and meals.
Are you new to TYHP? The first step to hunting with us is to create a Youth Hunter Account. If you already have a Youth Hunter Account but cannot remember your user name please do not set up another account. Contact the TYHP office for assistance.
