The Facts About Minimum Acreage

There are many misconceptions regarding who qualifies to be in Wildlife Management and who does not.


One of the most common misunderstandings is how many acres are required in order to move land from traditional Ag to Wildlife Management. Here is a brief scenario from The Texas Agrilife Extension office publication that addresses this issue.


From AgriLife Extension Publication ESP-377 “Wildlife Management and Property Valuation in Texas”

Scenario 1:

Question 1: Does the land currently have agricultural use valuation?

  • Answer: Yes

Question 2: Has the size of the property having agricultural use valuation been reduced since the last tax year?

  • Answer: No

Next step: There is no minimum acreage required; apply for conversion to wildlife management agricultural use between January 1 – April 30.


The short answer is, there is no minimum acreage requirement unless your property was reduced in size in the previous year. The most efficient way to know if you qualify is to call Plateau. We’ve been working on these issues with hundreds of landowners each year for over 17 years.


This map provides information about acreage requirements if you are planning to or have subdivided your property.
