Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Lampasas County and Texas Parks and Wildlife have teamed up to present the Lampasas County WhiteTailed Deer Management Workshop, beginning with registration at 8:30 am on Oct. 28, 2010 in Lampasas, at the Lampasas County Farm Bureau Building (1793 N. Hwy 281).
Participants will receive information on many aspects of whitetailed deer management including: deer diets and supplementation strategies, genetics and harvest strategies, the importance of aging, and the economic impact deer hunting brings to local communities. Participants will also hear a laws and regulations update from local Game Wardens.
Scheduled presenters include Texas Parks and Wildlife Biologists Trey Carpenter and Derrick Wolter; Texas AgriLife Extension Economist Dr. Jason Johnson; Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden Jim Lindeman; and Jason Byrd, Country Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources in Lampasas County. "Deer hunting is serious business in Lampasas and surrounding counties," said Jason Byrd. "Our goal is to educate landowners and deer hunters on best management practices, in order to increase the quality of the deer on our rangelands and bring everyone up to speed on the rules and regulations for this year’s deer season."
Three continuing education units (CEUs) will be offered for those with a pesticide license (2
General, and 1 Laws & Regs.) Participants will enjoy a catered lunch on site. Anyone planning on attending the program is asked to RSVP to the Lampasas County Office (5125568271) or at email@example.com by Oct. 22, 2010 in order to ensure an accurate count for lunch. The cost to attend the program is $10 if registered by the Oct. 22 deadline or $20 thereafter. Please feel free to contact the Lampasas County Office with any questions.
