My place is on what used to be Camp Fannin, a US Army WWII base that trained solders. With the latest Omnibus Bill signed by Trump, the Army is using some of the money to go back and clean up the land. 1,800 acres are being cleared of all underbrush and saplings. They are turning thick jungle into what looks like a nice park. They are working on my neighbors place right now and they have been surveying mine, so I'm coming up pretty soon.

From what I understand, turkeys struggle when released because the land has changed too much and its not open under the trees. With what the Army contractors are doing, I'm wondering if this 1,800 block of land, just North of Tyler, would be a good place for the state to release turkeys when they are all done clearing it?

Who do you ask? Who is in charge of something like this? Why wouldn't they be interested in something like this?

Eddie, I got a release last year on my place at Brushy Creek in Anderson County. Jason Hardin With TPWD is who you will need to visit with. Its a lengthy process and they have a target area that you are quite a ways north of. Need 10,000 acres minimum. Never hurts to ask for an evaluation though. Tarrence Jackson working on tring to put together a coop near Frankston and hopefully get a release in the near future. Jason's office number is 903 322 2770.
