Texas Outdoor Partners Meeting

A coalition of about 50 hunting, fishing and conservation groups banding together under the name Texas Outdoor Partners will meet this Wednesday in Austin. The group will discuss various issues affecting hunters, anglers and conservation in Texas, including “taking a close look at the future of Fund 9 and brainstorming overall conservation funding options in general,” according to Kirby Brown of the Texas Wildlife Association, who is helping lead efforts to organize the new umbrella group.

Brown said the meeting will include staff from the Texas Senate and House of Representatives, including the Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the House, as well as new TPWD Executive Director Carter Smith and other agency leaders.
