Texas hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation information
Texas game and fish are vital to the health of both our state’s environment and economy. Wildlife in Texas are considered public property and managed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). Exotics are wildlife from other countries that are managed in habitats and considered property, much like cattle. TPWD has no jurisdiction over exotics. For more information, visit the Exotic Wildlife Association’s website.
Feral hogs are a mix of swine genetics originating from the Spanish explorers, escaped domestic swine and the Russian Wild Boar, which was introduced for hunting. The Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) monitors feral hogs, due to the many diseases they carry. Texas’ feral hog population has boomed to more than 4 million pigs, despite constant, statewide eradication efforts. Visit the Texas AgriLife Extension Service's website on feral hogs for more information.
Texas Farm Bureau’s Wildlife and Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee invites your input on keeping members informed of news and events pertaining to this committee.
