Woodland Mangement for Wildlife Managers Workshop in Gasconade County

Discussion in 'Deer Management, Habitat & Conservation' started by shortgrass, Jan 18, 2018.

  1. Most folks on here have seen the thread by BajaBill detailing the woodland management that they are doing on their property. Well now it appears we will be having a free workshop to look at the many aspects of the management. This will be a great opportunity to see the various stages of woodland management and see how topography and soils should be influencing management.

    I will try an bump this announcement back up as the date gets closer, but I just wanted to put it on folks radar.
