The hunt is sponsored by USACE, Lone Star Warriors Outdoors and Texas Parks and Wildlife. The Wallisville Lake Project is a large area (23,000 acres) of protected wetlands, swamp forest, and bottomland hardwood forest created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for salinity control, navigation, water supply, recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement. The project stretches along both sides of the Trinity River and both north and south of Interstate Highway 10 about halfway between Houston and Beaumont, Texas.
