Site Description: Eagle Creek Wildlife Management Area is owned by the TRG Threshold Timber Corporation and is managed by American Forrest Management.  The property has more of a timber management focus than a wildlife management aspect since it is not owned by TWRA. 

It is different stages of clear cuts and pines with some hardwoods in the hollows and along streams.   The TWRA leases this WMA for public hunting opportunities.    It was established in the late 80’s.

This 22,000-acre property has hunting opportunities for deer, turkey, and small game.  It is the same as statewide seasons and does not require a special permit from the landowner, only the applicable TWRA hunting licenses and WMA permit.

Many visitors will recognize the historic log cabin erected by TWRA that was once used as the deer check-in station.   Across Copelan Rd from the cabin is the primitive camping area for hunters, which is first come first serve, no sign in required.

Wildlife to Watch:  Wild TurkeyWhite-tailed Deersquirrel, rabbit, and other game species use this area and often seen.
