Deer Management Field Day Offers Hands-On ExperienceTue, 06 Oct 2015 11:54:01 CDT
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Deer Management Field Day from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Noble Foundation Oswalt Road Ranch in Marietta, Oklahoma.
During the workshop, wildlife consultants from the Noble Foundation will discuss deer biology and habitat, food habits, aging, and antler development. The workshop will include demonstrations in the field as well as in-class discussions.
"These workshops provide key insights into the behavior and biology of deer," said Will Moseley, Noble Foundation wildlife consultant. "Most producers understand the methods for managing livestock. We're going to help provide a knowledge base so that they can actively manage their wildlife resources with equal proficiency."
A field tour will be given to discuss and show population management, succession, and habitat management techniques such as fire, rest, mechanical and grazing.
This workshop is open to the public, but preregistration is requested. The registration fee is $20 and includes lunch. For more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Maggie Scott at 580.224.6375.
