A Wildlife Management Plan
gives information on your property's historic and current use,
establishes your goals for the property, and provides a set
of activities designed to integrate wildlife and habitat improvements to meet your goals.
Management plans for ranches are designed to meet the needs of
the wildlife as well as the needs and desires of you, the
landowner. Whether managing for
deer, game birds, or other species, the Wildlife Management Plan
requirements of the species based on the habitat available as well as it's potential
availability. Depending on the goals you set for the plan, different practices
may be prescribed.
Plans for the Wildlife
Tax Exemption are likely to include elements
of all seven listed
wildlife management activities. All
activities and practices are designed to overcome
deficiencies that limit wildlife or harm their habitats. Each
one of the activities should be practiced
routinely or consistently as part of an overall habitat
management plan. For example, sporadically scattering corn would not qualify as providing
supplemental supplies of food
under these guidelines.
The prescribed activities in your wildlife management plan will
be specific to the particular region of the state your property is located. There are many
practices that are appropriate in some regions of Texas that are inappropriate
in others. For example,
some areas of East Texas may not require
providing supplemental water for wildlife. And there may be
no need for supplemental cover in the brush country of South Texas.
