TPW TV–Hunting

This is Passport to Texas

It may still feel like summer outside, but we’ve already crossed the threshold into fall hunting season. Will you be prepared? You may be if you watch the Texas Parks and Wildlife television show this month. Series Producer, Don Cash.

We’re going to take a look at the tradition of hunting and how it’s passed down from one generation to the next. You know, it helps if you grow up in a hunting family, but if you don’t, Parks and Wildlife has some ways to help you get out there and learn to hunt, whether you’re a kid or whether you’re an adult.

We’ve got to get them a place to get outdoors on regular basis and then teach them about the outdoors, about habitat, about wildlife, and about ethics—and that’s what it’s really all about.

Another thing that’s important in hunting season is to make sure your firearms are safe, and one way to do that is clean them. Make sure you clean them before you go out hunting.

Before you clean your firearm, the first thing we need to do is make sure the firearm is empty, by first looking down the chamber, to make sure there’s nothing in the chamber. We also look at the magazine to make sure there’s nothing in the magazine.

And September is the start of the hunting season, and we’re going to help you out on the television show.

Thanks, Don!
