Texas Youth Hunt 2022

Mark your calendars ORWMA is once again hosting the Texas Youth Hunt Program. The Texas Youth Hunting Program (TYHP) was formed with the Texas Wildlife Association and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1996 to provide opportunities for youth to participate in hunting activities safely, legally, and ethically, while learning about the role landowners and hunters play in wildlife conservation

With the youth group set to arrive by Friday afternoon on November 18, 2022, we’ll need assistance with the set-up that morning at the Community Center starting at 9:00 AM. We’ll need to set up (if not already done) the tables and chairs as well as checking on the evening meal preparation with Doug Jeske and his crew. We’ll also coordinate the serving area and drink stations.

On November 18 the hunters will proceed to Vernon Wallace’s for a safety briefing and checking of firearms and then set up tents at the Community Center. ORWMA will provide hamburgers and hot dogs for Friday evening meal. The Friday evening meal is for the hunters, chaperones, hunt masters, and those landowners providing deer stands.

Saturday morning hunters and their guardians will be taken to their stands and picked up to return to the Community Center at 9 am. ORWMA will provide breakfast for the hunters. The hunters will provide their own lunch on Saturday. They will again be taken to stands and picked up after the evening hunt is completed.

ORWMA will provide barbequed chicken, sausage, and sides for supper. All landowners are invited to attend the Saturday night meal. In addition to the main meal, we would like to request donations of baked goods (ex: cookies, brownies, cakes, pies, etc.) for dessert from our group of ORWMA members. All desserts must beindividually wrapped. Please let us know if you will be able to assist in this effort. We will also accept cash donations.

Per Texas Youth Hunt rules, no tobacco products are allowed, and no visible alcohol is allowed.

On Sunday morning the hunters will again be taken to stands and picked up after the morning hunt is completed. ORWMA will again provide breakfast. Following the ORWMA presentation, hunters will pack up and pick up around their area before departing.
