Texas Deer Study Group, April 2014

A flyer was available at the recent CCWMA banquet, announcing a two-day seminar to be held April 10-11, 2014 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Columbus.  The program  is offered through the Texas Wildlife Association with additional sponsorship from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Texas Parks & Wildlife and Texas A&M Agrilife Extension.  A few of the topics to be included are:

  • history of deer management in the Post Oak Savanna and Gulf-Coast Prairies
  • habitat changes
  • managing deer on small acreage
  • an overview on deer nutrition

The second day of the program includes a field day at J3J4 Ranch for habitat management techniques, native and introduced vegetation identification and deer necropsy.

The seminar fee is $75 before 3/31 or $100 after 3/31 and includes meals and handout materials.  You may register online at www.texas-wildlife.org/resources/events/texas-deer-study-group.  More information is available from Clint Faas   cfass@texas-wildlife.org or 979-541-9803

I have registered to attend and look forward to learning more about how ranch habitat management and deer management go together.
