Texas Hunter Appreciation Month
San Antonio, Texas – Texas Trophy Hunters Association (TTHA) is celebrating hunters during Hunter Appreciation Month! From wildlife conservation to economically supporting our local, state and national communities, hunters take better care of our planet than any other group of people and TTHA wants to say, "Thanks!"
TTHA salutes Texas Governor Rick Perry in his declaration of November 2009 as “Hunter Appreciation Month.” Texas is second to none for the total number of anglers and hunters boasting 2.6 million strong. When you include the 341,000 non-resident sportsmen that Texas attracts each year, hunters in the state of Texas generate $4.6 billion for the Texas economy.
Carter Smith, Executive Director Texas Parks and Wildlife Department states, "Texas has long been defined by its rich and unique hunting heritage. With an abundance of game ranging from deer to ducks and quail to turkeys, there is something for every sportsman to enjoy out in our woods and waters. I hope all Texas hunters will make time to go afield this month, and most importantly to take a young person with them. Passing along our proud hunting traditions to future generations is a must for all who value the future of our great outdoors."
"TTHA applauds Governor Perry for his recognition of hunters as conservationists and the positive economic impact of hunting in Texas”, states Joe Betar, VP, COO of Texas Trophy Hunters Association. “In addition, TTHA echoes Governor Perry’s emphasis on the importance of hunter safety and ethics as taught by instructors across the state.”
TTHA will celebrate hunters and the legacy they provide the entire month of November with a Texas-Sized Road Trip. Look for TTHA representatives at BBQs, banquets, dinners, dances and opening weekend events. Every stop along the way, we'll have heaps of FREE gifts for members and/or anyone proudly displaying the TTHA "skull and horns." Now's the time to load up the truck with stickers and decals because if you're proud enough to show off the TTHA logo, we want to say "Thanks for hunting!"
If we don’t see you on the road near your favorite hunting camp, please stop by TTHA Headquarters in San Antonio, Texas and have a cup of coffee on us. Show us a valid hunting license and/or your TTHA member card and receive a free gift.
TTHA encourages you to participate in the outdoors during this great month! For more information about Hunter Appreciation Month and to find events in your area, go to www.TTHA.com.
