Official Guide to Texas Wildlife Management Areas

By Larry D. Hodge

 

Table of Contents and Excerpt

 

Getting out into the great outdoors is now even easier than before! More than one million acres, virtually unknown and untapped, are available for a wide variety of activities. With 97 percent of Texas lands in the hands of private ownership, the state's 51 wildlife management areas provide unique opportunities for those who want to get close to nature.

This book gives detailed descriptions of each area, including locator maps, history, recreational activities, available facilities (including wheelchair accessibility), wildlife, habitat, and contact information. It also includes expert advice from wildlife biologists on hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing for each diverse area, as well as tips for some of the best birding, camping, hiking, biking, and horseback riding to be found in the great outdoors. Like its companion book, The Official Guide to Texas State Parks, the WMAs are grouped into seven geographic regions—Big Bend Country, Gulf Coast, Hill Country, Panhandle Plains, Pineywoods, Prairies and Lakes, and the South Texas Plains. Beautiful photographs and user-friendly information make this book a must for long-time nature lovers and novice explorers alike.

Larry D. Hodge, an experienced hunter and eloquent writer, has authored a number of guidebooks and has become one of the best-known Texas writers in the fields of travel and the outdoors.
