The Texas Big Game Awards (TBGA) is co-sponsored by Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD).

Program Goals:The Texas Big Game Awards is designed to promote big game hunting in Texas and to promote and encourage sound habitat and wildlife management. The program recognizes: 1) The quality of big game animals in Texas; 2) The hunters who harvest these animals; 3) The land managers who produce these animals; 4) The importance of our hunting heritage; and 5) The achievements of young and new hunters.

Eight geographic regions are recognized by the TBGA. All program entries will be recognized within the TBGA Region where the animal was harvested. Minimum scoring criteria for Scored Entries differ among program Regions.
