TPW Magazine September Preview

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

Whether do your shooting with a gun or a camera the September issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine has stories that take aim at your interests. Managing Editor, Louie Bond.

In our September cover story, we have our annual hunting forecast. It’s a real must have for all Texas hunters. John Jefferson says the biologists he interviewed were excited about this year’s prospects due to this wonderful abundant rain we’ve been having this year.

If your weapon of choice is a camera, though, Karen Hastings takes our readers on a tour of backyard sanctuaries. These private home gardens have been planted with flowers that attract butterflies and birds. But the owners then decide to open them up to the public so we can all share them. One woman even went to her local nursery and traded in lawn for native plants, which I just think is wonderful.

They attract rare birds, and wildlife photographers and even former President Jimmy Carter.

Thanks, Louie. The September issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine is on newsstands now.
