“If you’re already beginning the pursuit of archery sports, bring your remaining questions to our staff on site, which includes archery specialists and a game warden too,” said Rob Owen, TPWD Outreach and Recruitment Manager. “If you’re at the stage of ‘I or my family member is interested in bowhunting but could use help beginning,’ this event hopes to start you down the right path with next steps for future seasons.”
The class includes an introductory range with 3D targets, a deer processing (skinning/quartering/butchering) demonstration, cooking conversations, gear examples and activities for children.
Staff will be available to answer questions related to public hunting and regulations.
