Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

The GO TEXAN brand is well-known among agricultural producers, wineries and restaurants. And now, the brand is expanding to include wildlife.

I’m extremely excited to announce the addition of the GO TEXAN Wildlife initiative. We’re inviting businesses and organizations that focus on wildlife recreation to join GO TEXAN.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Todd Staples, encourages businesses that cater to hunting and fishing enthusiasts to take part in the GO TEXAN Wildlife Initiative.

TPWD estimates fish and wildlife recreation activities have a $15.8 Billion dollar impact on the Texas economy. Parks and Wildlife shares our commitment to business development in rural Texas, and the GO TEXAN brand is a tremendous way to do that.

Commissioner Staples says the GO TEXAN Wildlife initiative captures the heritage of our state.

Since the beginning of time, Texas has been recognized as an ecosystem that offers a diverse variety of fish and wildlife opportunities for enthusiasts. Whether you’re hunting [,fishing] or nature tourism—whatever it is—the Texas Wildlife Initiative showcases the best that Texas has to offer.
