Making Tracks with TDA
Recently, the Texas Deer Association participated in the Nueces County Junior Livestock Show (NCJLS) in Robstown, Texas. The livestock show is one of the premier events of its kind in south Texas, offering young people the opportunity to show their animals and other projects and to compete for scholarship money. As an outreach of its educational mission, TDA staff interacted with the public during the show, sponsoring a booth to educate visitors about the work of TDA and signing up new members to join in our efforts.
The mission of the NCJLS is to “promote responsibility and leadership skills through the educational work of 4-H Clubs, FCCLA and FFA Chapters in cooperation with the adult leaders of Nueces County in all phases of agriculture, homemaking and industry.”
The Texas Deer Association is proud to continue our tradition of support for this fine youth organization with a donation of $6,500—directly benefitting 35 students in the Nueces County area. This money was raised at our annual Corpus Christi Chapter Sportsmen’s Night Out banquet held in May of last year. TDA hosts a number of these banquets across the state to raise money for youth events and scholarships benefiting Texas students, including livestock shows, hunter education courses, and 4-H clubs.

The Texas Deer Association was founded in 1999, and today, our efforts to promote the future of Texas’ whitetail heritage are unparalleled. TDA continues to lead the way as the largest organization in the state dedicated to protecting the rights of both the landowner and the hunter. We are proud to be the unified voice for deer enthusiasts seeking to share ideas and methods to improve and protect our Texas whitetail heritage.
