Every Texas hunter born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete a hunter education course.
Hunter education provides instruction in Texas hunting regulations, wildlife management and identification, conservation, ethics, firearm and hunting safety and responsibility and outdoor skills.
By understanding hunting through education, hunters and non-hunters alike will help make a bright future for the sport. Now is the time to become involved, so let us know if you are interested in becoming an instructor, Ramirez said.
To register, contact Phil Brakebill, TPWD Hunter Education Area Chief, at (903) 569-5882.
