Whether you are an experienced hunter or a novice nature buff, nothing stirs the blood like sighting-in on a well-antlered buck as he majestically steps into a clearing on an early, crisp, fall morning. Young Texas deer enthusiasts with a sincere “yearning for learning” should make plans to apply to one of our Buckskin Brigade programs.

Join us for the next camp

Both South and North Texas Buckskin Brigade camps offer participants an in-depth view of Texas’ deer. The committees select the students who will participate in a five day, intensive training to develop an in-depth understanding of one of the most sought-after trophies in Texas. Along with training to assist with the development of leadership skills, public speaking and working as a team, Buckskin Brigade will teach participants deer anatomy and biology, habitat and nutrition requirements, rattling, scoring and survey methods, as well as rifle and archery basics, and hunting/firearm safety. The Brigade model of leadership development, education and empowerment continues with our Buckskin Brigade programs. Come join us!
