Events

Seminars and tours are annually hosted on the Kerr Wildlife Management Area (WMA).

Seminars include information on historical accounts of the Texas Hill Country and the Kerr WMA along with ecosystems management information using a holistic approach to land improvement. They also cover a summary of past and present deer research, over 40 years, from the Donnie E. Harmel White-tailed Deer Research Pens; an update on the status of feral hogs; a look at different management techniques for deer and general wildlife and an overview of TPWD programs that are available to assist landowners. We also offer a field tour of the WMA and the research facilities.

Please contact the Kerr WMA headquarters by calling (830) 238-4483 for more information and registration.

Registration is required.

Driving

Driving Tour Permitted

From the Kerr WMA Road you can take a four-mile, self-guided educational auto tour (paved road) which is open to the public from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday. It takes visitors through various stops with kiosks which address wildlife, habitat and management techniques. The auto tour is not available during public hunt periods.

The Schumacher entrance is located to the west of the main gate and is approximately 2 miles of paved road available for wildlife viewing. It is open every day during daylight hours.
