The Roger R. Fawcett WMA is in southern Palo Pinto County, six miles northeast of Gordon, TX in the western Cross Timbers Ecoregion. The 5,459-acre WMA contains good examples of old-growth Cross Timbers habitat with some trees on the area ranging from 200-300 years of age. The post oak/blackjack oak woodlands are interspersed with areas of open grassland savanna habitat and rocky sandstone outcrops with over 350 foot of elevation across the property. Boasting excellent populations of white-tailed deer, upland game, and waterfowl, the primary purpose of the area is to serve as a research and demonstration site for the Cross Timbers and Prairies Ecosystem, where staff can investigate new techniques for the management of wildlife species and their habitats and to demonstrate the results of proven wildlife management practices to resource managers, landowners, and other interested groups.
