Why is it important to become a member of THEIA?
THEIA is the non-profit that supports TPWD Hunter Education. THEIA is responsible for paying for the Incentive Awards beyond what the State can legally pay for. Those Instructors who reach the level of Rifle, Pistol, or Shotgun will receive their Incentive Awards from THEIA. Your membership helps us continue this level of giving back to the Instructors.
