Texas AgriLife Extension Service (TAES) is offering a Texas Wildlife Short Course on August 20-21, 2010 in Bryan/College Station, Texas for interested sportsmen and landowners. The wildlife management class will consist of a day and a half of educational programming that merges into the Texas Big Game Awards Banquet for Regions 5, 6, 7 (Post Oak Savannah, Pineywoods, and Coastal Prairies).
In addition to covering topics on habitat management, activities will also have youth activities like archery, air guns, laser shot and more. This will be a great event for landowners interested in implementing wildlife and habitat management practices on their property, as well as those wanting to see some big white-tailed bucks harvested from eastern and coastal Texas.
Educational topics covering white-tailed deer management, the use of infrared cameras for scouting, and what forages to plant for deer food plots and doves will be discussed. Feral hog and farm pond management, and marketing wildlife on your piece of Texas will also be covered. A special session will be devoted to managing wildlife for the 1-d-1 Open Space Lands wildlife tax exemption and valuation.
TAES also have exhibitor space and sponsorship opportunities available. You can find more information and register online at their website by searching keyword “wildlife”, or by calling 979-845-2604 for the wildlife management class assistance.
