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.
Please consider giving the gift of hunting through a tax deductible donation that will be used to provide memorable experiences that expose Texans to nature, conservation, and responsible and safe hunting. The Texas Youth Hunting Program (TYHP) takes over a thousand youths and their adult companion on hunts every season. For many participants, this is their first opportunity to explore nature's classroom and most become life-long supporters of Texas' rich natural resources. TYHP teaches all participants about the important role that landowners and hunters play in wildlife conservation. Donate here https://secure.qgiv.com/for/twaf
