Adult Learn to Hunt Program

Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) is the nation’s leading organization in providing both adults and youth the opportunity to learn how to hunt.  Our Texas Youth Hunting Program (TYHP) has successfully run over 3,300 hunts taking in excess of 50,000 youth hunters and parents on safe, legal, ethical and educational.  With this history as a basis, we have expanded our programming to meet a vital need in our adult population as well. With our Adult Learn to Hunt Program, we focus our mission on novice hunters with an interest in forging a connection between conservation hunting and sustainable eating.  As land stewards, we know the many challenges of participating in traditional outdoor activities and aim to break down those barriers for our fellow Texans. 

Adult Learn to Hunt Program

TWA’s educational hunts are typically 3 days/2 nights and consist of firearms training and safety, harvest shot placement techniques and a personal guide/mentor that will be with each hunter throughout the experience.  Participants will also learn valuable skills related to skinning, butchering and cooking techniques associated with wild game. Upon applying to the program, applications will be reviewed, and hunters will be contacted once chosen to participate.

Provided:

  • All meals with an emphasis on wild game
  • Firearms if needed
  • Firearm instruction
  • Hunting guide/mentor
  • Lodging (depending on location participants may stay in ranch facilities, or have the opportunity to tent camp)

"I love what TWA does for Texas. It educates Texans of all ages, promotes conservation, supports landowners and recruits hunters to keep our tradition alive. It's a great organization that is committed to the land, the wildlife and the people who care about them." -

While free to apply, all applicants must be a TWA Associate member ($75/year) or above to participate in a hunting experience. All hunters will be required to have a valid Texas Hunting License and have completed Hunter Education; this can be done online.
