THE ENVIRONMENT, CAMP BULLIS, AND YOU
Camp Bullis is located on the edge of the Edwards Plateau Land Resource Area in a hilly region known as the Texas Hill Country, and locally called the Balcones Canyonlands.
The area is rich in archaeological resources, history, unique geology, and wildlife - both above and below ground. These resources can be threatened by man's activities, but are just as easily preserved. Camp Bullis is in the forefront of local preservation efforts. Not only is it our moral obligation, it is the law!
Archaeological resources include prehistoric Native American campsites - some dating back 8000 years before present, food processing sites, and quarry sites where chert (flint) could be obtained to manufacture tools and weapons. These are a record of man's past. They contain valuable information about our origins.
Historical sites date back to the 1860's and can be unique because of their architecture, function, layout, or connection with an historic person or event. Historical events and customs shaped this country, Texas, and Camp Bullis. The preservation of these sites adds to the understanding of where we are and what we have today.
Unique geology in this are includes the Balcones Fault Zone, which resulted in development of the Edwards Aquifer. The Aquifer provides water for over one million people. The City of San Antonio is one of the largest cities in the United States that derives all its water form wells. Water is life. Protection of this valuable resource insures sufficient clean water to support our current and future needs.
Rare wildlife above ground includes the endangered golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo. Below ground can be found several invertebrate species currently petitioned for endangered species status. One species, a blind ground beetle, is found only in three caves at Camp Bullis - and no other place in the world! Endangered species are sometime referred to a s "indicator species". Their presence signals a healthy ecosystem. Their decline or disappearance signals a problem. It is our responsibility to recognize and correct any problems before they become disasters.
The mission of Camp Bullis is military training. This does not mean that we cannot also be good environmental stewards. Since no more "new land" is being made, we are realizing that we have to take good care of what we now have if it is to remain viable and supportive of the mission during the future. The Environmental and Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) office, which is a part of the team managing Camp Bullis training land, is constantly looking for ways to improve both training and the environmental quality of the installation. This is currently accomplished through ITAM.

The ITAM Program is the Army's formal strategy for focusing on sustained use of training and testing lands. The intent of the ITAM Program is to systematically provide a uniform training land management capability across the total Army. The Army will manage its' lands in a sound manner to ensure no net loss of training and mission requirements. The effective integration of stewardship principles into training land and conservation management practices ensures that the Army's lands remain viable to support future training and mission requirements.
In the 21st Century, the Army faces unprecedented challenges to its ability to train. Increased environmental regulation of training lands and ranges, coupled with increased economic development around Army installations all contribute to a more challenging training climate.
A sound land management program that provides economical and acceptable planning and execution is mandatory to protect that land as an essential asset for training. It is in overcoming the apparent conflict between force readiness and stewardship that ITAM serves the overall needs of the Army.
The Camp Bullis Outdoor Recreation Program offers the outdoorsman a variety of activities throughout the year. You can enjoy hunting in the fall, winter, and spring, ranging from our spectacular whitetail deer, to our beautiful Rio Grande turkey. Sprinkle in dove, quail, rabbit, squirrel, and Catalina goat and you can pretty much pass eight months out of the year in the woods.
When it gets too hot to hunt, cool your heels in our swimming pool turned catfish pond. Stocked with channel catfish, ranging from three to ten pounds, it's bound to get the old adrenalin flowing. But if you really want to get a kick out of it, bring your kids and watch them latch on to a whopper.
In addition to our hunting and fishing, we offer a pistol, rifle, and shotgun range; an archery range and hunter safety classes in both archery and gun. From January to September we hold monthly 3D archery shoots. In May we also have a wild game dinner that is open to members and their families.
We have a park with a pavilion, picnic tables, barbeque pits, playgrounds, volleyball courts, and horseshoe pits, and a lodge that is available to rent for your private or unit functions. If you have an RV and can't keep it in your driveway, we can solve that problem too. We have RV storage available. Give us a try. If we don't have what you want and we can't get it, then we will help you find it.
Our hours of operation will vary with the different hunting seasons. Our normal operating hours are from 0800 to 1600, Friday and Monday and 0700 to 1700 Saturday and Sunday. We close on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. During the deer hunting seasons, we open as early as 0400 and close after dark. For other hunts we will open according to the times necessary to get you in the field by prime time.
You may reach us by calling 210-295-7577 or 7529. DSN is 421-7577 or 7529.
