'Whitetail and Mule Deer and Elk...Oh My! Getting Wild with Wildlife Management.'

Wildlife management is critically important in managing our agricultural lands. This is true whether you are managing wildlife for hunting purposes, attempting to control the effects they have on your crops, or running domestic livestock in conjunction with native species. Workshop participants will learn about the different levels of wildlife management and some of the methods used. They will also participate in hands-on activities that model wildlife population sampling, competition between animal populations, and aging of deer jaws, all of which correlate to NALO T.1.b, T.1.d, and T.5.a.. Participants will also receive additional classroom wildlife activities.
