New Landowner Brochure Offers Advice

AUSTIN, Texas — The Private Lands and Public Hunting Program at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has a new brochure available — primarily for new owners of rural land.

“A Place in the Country – Guidance for New Landowners” offers advice and recommendations for the growing number of people purchasing land for recreational use.

Topics include what to consider when purchasing recreation land, understanding the habitats and wildlife found on your land, wildlife management as an agricultural tax option, being a good neighbor, and technical/financial assistance available from TPWD and other agencies. The new brochure is being distributed to Wildlife Regional and District offices, urban biologists, and wildlife field staff assisting landowners.

For more information or to obtain copies, please contact Marla Bays at (512) 389-4959.
