MDC offers deer management workshop in Saline County
MARSHALL, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is holding a deer management workshop for landowners and property managers from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 21 in the R. Wilson Brown room at Missouri Valley College Ferguson Center in Marshall. The workshop is free, but space is limited and participants must pre-register by Sept. 18.
Experts from MDC will offer presentations on a variety of topics during the workshop. Issues covered include the biology and habitat requirements of deer in Missouri, managing habitat on private land, cost-share practices for habitat management, aging deer jawbones and recording harvest data.
“This is a great opportunity for landowners to learn how to actively manage their property for deer,” said MDC Private Land Conservationist Seth Moore. “The topics covered will assist landowners in all aspects of deer management.”
Weather permitting; there will be a demonstration area to show examples of habitat management at Marshall Junction Conservation Area (CA).
The Ferguson Center is located at 500 E. College St., at the intersection of South Redmond Ave. and East College St. in Marshall. Parking is available to the north of College St., across from the Ferguson Center.
