  •  This frontier hero is supposed to be Daniel Boone and represents a common misconception of Boone’s appearance. Daniel Boone’s image in pop culture largely came from the Daniel Boone TV series (1964-70) that described Boone as a “big man” in a “coonskin cap,” neither of which is true of the real Daniel Boone. Actor Fess Parker had played Davy Crockett in an earlier TV series, and it was believed he was basically reprising that role in the Daniel Boone series, thus reshaping Boone’s modern image.

This television spot for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Hunter Safety Training Program invokes the spirit of early frontier heroes hunting on the range, both western settlers and Native Americans, to demonstrate that children today dream of being like those early American heroes and need education to hunt safely.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department provides outdoor recreational opportunities by managing and protecting wildlife and wildlife habitat and acquiring and managing parklands and historic areas. It has inherited the functions of many state entities created to protect Texas' natural resources. In 1895 the legislature created the Fish and Oyster Commission to regulate fishing. The Game Department was added to the commission in 1907. The State Parks Board was created as a separate entity in 1923. In the 1930s, projects of the federal Civilian Conservation Corps added substantially to the state's parklands. In 1951, the term oyster was dropped from the wildlife agency's name, and in 1963, the State Parks Board and the Game and Fish Commission were merged to form the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department under the administration of Governor John B. Connally. The legislature placed authority for managing fish and wildlife resources in all Texas counties with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department when it passed the Wildlife Conservation Act in 1983. Previously, commissioners courts had set game and fish laws in many counties, and other counties had veto power over department regulations. Currently, TPWD operates 114 state parks and historical sites, 51 wildlife management areas, and eight fish hatcheries.
