This is Passport to Texas
Feral hogs are responsible for extensive wildlife habitat destruction.
02 — Certainly it is a resource issue in Texas.
Linda Campbell is program director for Private Lands and Public Hunting at Parks and Wildlife. The destructive nature of wild hogs is just one reason why these non-native mammals are new on the menu for this year’s Big Time Texas Hunts…
22 —…[it’s] called the Wild Hog Adventure…. And so we thought, ‘Well, you know — let’s try this.’ Let’s offer a package where people get a great hunting adventure with wild hogs in East Texas. We’ve got a great operator that’s going to run this hunt for us. And so I think this is going to be a great, fun hunt, and an opportunity to hunt our big, mean looking hogs in East Texas.
There are eight premium hunting packages offered in all. Entries are $9 online or $10 by phone, mail or retail. Deadline is October 15. And buying an entry is a win for wildlife conservation in Texas.
19— The money is used to support wildlife habitat and conservation throughout the state, and it also goes to support public hunting opportunities on our wildlife management areas. And [it supports] other types of conservation and habitat work. You’re donating to a good cause that really is very important to the support of the work we do in the wildlife division.
