Land availability and access for hunting and other wildlife-related recreational uses are important issues in many states with few public areas. The Type II land program was developed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) as one method for private landowners to make available their lands to hunters while the TPWD manages the sale of hunting leases and game resources. This article discusses the operation of the Type II land program and public support of it.
