HSC And Texas Wildlife Association Foundation Partner to Promote Youth Hunting
Posted: October 16, 2014
The TYHP is recognized as one of the official educational programs of the Texas Wildlife Association and its partner, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, to introduce young Texans to hunting. Each year, the TYHP gives thousands of Texans the opportunity to participate in youth hunting activities, legally and ethically while learning about the valuable role landowners and hunters play in wildlife conservation. Because many youth today do not have the resources or opportunities to experience outdoor activities such as hunting, especially on private land, the TYHP is a solution as it provides hunting activities for many families who have limited income and/or limited access to private and public land.
