Commission Agenda Item No. 12
Eastern Wild Turkey Restoration Program
January 2004

I. Executive Summary: The eastern wild turkey was extirpated from east Texas during the early 1900s. At that time, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department initiated a project to restore the eastern wild turkey to available habitat in east Texas. This project has been very successful and most of the suitable eastern wild turkey habitat in east Texas has been stocked.
