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
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 email@example.com 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.
