TPWD helps find places to hunt
Research surveys show that finding a place to hunt is a barrier for many people in today’s Texas, which is why Texas Parks and Wildlife Department created the Hunt Texas Online Connection, a free web service that allows anyone to view hunting opportunities posted by private landowners across the state.
In early 2008, the department invited landowners to list hunting lease opportunities in Texas for free, including last-minute openings. Currently, hunters can search more than 450 hunting opportunities by lease type, county, game animal, cost per hunter and other parameters. The service is free to both hunters and landowners.
“Anyone looking for a hunting lease in Texas can use this free service to find listings from landowners throughout the state,” said Linda Campbell, TPWD program director for private lands and public hunting. “This is one way we’re trying to better serve our license-buying public. It’s important to keep the Texas hunting tradition strong."
