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.
