Education is the key to success

In today's world, a number of people do not understand why trapping is an important management tool for wildlife populations or believe trapping is unnecessary, cruel and inhumane.  Many of these misunderstandings are due to a lack of knowledge or misperceptions.

The members of the TTFHA are dedicated to education and believe that we are ambassadors of wildlife management. Our efforts are intended to correct misperceptions, including those offered by animal activists and their propaganda.

We invite you to join us in teaching others how to be stewards of wildlife through hunting and trapping conservation activities. If you feel strongly about wildlife conservation, we ask that you get involved.

Volunteer today! Help us educate youngsters and adults through many of the educational activities we are involved with at a local and state level.

    Hello. My family has a big ranch in Stephens county. I'm looking to learn how to become a fur trapper. I am clueless about how to legitimize it. I've trapped feral hogs in the past and a little now due to the vastly growing population this year. I've seen a huge number of coyotes and raccoons lately plus a few more bobcats than usual.

      Good evening! We are hosting our Fall Rendezvous Oct 6-7 in Brownwood. If you could attend you would get a chance to meet folks to answer questions you may have. The schedule of the weekend is posted under the convention tab at the top of the page. If you are in Stephens county, Earle Blakney is the Director for District 2. He will be one of the "on the line" instructors where they set traps overnight and check them the next day and he will be demonstrating proper skinning and pelt preservation through out the day.

    Hey y'all! I'm looking for any and all information there is on trapping, buying and selling of softshell turtles. I would be immensely appreciative.
