Texas landowners are invited to attend a deer management workshop, hosted by the Erath County office of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Stephenville, 1229 N. U.S. Highway 281.
“The topics are planned to be presented in such a way that each talk builds to the next to present a well-rounded look at the most important issues facing native deer managers in our area,” said Dr. Whit Weems, Texas AgriLife Extension agent in Erath County. “All the speakers are well known in their respective fields and several have worked together on programs for years, so I think this effort has all the makings for a truly outstanding educational program.”
Program topics include “Deer Management 101,” deer habitat management and concerns, deer nutrition, hunting economics and more. Case studies and other resources also will be presented.
Registration is $25 by Oct. 22 and $30 thereafter. The registration fee includes lunch and program materials. To register, visit http://erath.agrilife.org and click on “events,” or contact the Erath County office at (254) 965-1460 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
