Texas Youth Hunt Cancelled

After talks with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and the Texas Youth Hunt Program Leadership Team, the Youth Hunt scheduled for November 20 – 22 has been cancelled. Due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 and the cancellation of many holiday activities, it has been decided to cancel this year’s Youth Hunt.

I would like to thank everyone who worked to help plan this event. I would also like to thank all the landowners who volunteered to help set up, clean up, cook, provide deer stands, and the numerous other activities that sometimes go unnoticed.

Hopefully, everyone stays safe through the Holidays and 2021 is a better year than 2020.

Purple Martins Seminar Cancelled

Out of an abundance of caution the ORWMA Purple Martin seminar schedule for tomorrow Saturday, March 14, has been cancelled.

Bert Stiplecovich (713-540-2378  brs@brs.net) has agreed to cancel and hopes that we contact him for another chance to present the Purple Martin event again. March/April is when you need to get your Purple Martin houses up. He wants to let everyone know that if you are interested in getting set up for this season’s  Purple Martins, you are more than welcome to contact him by phone or email and he will be more than happy to assist you or send to you by email any information needed.
