FAYETTE, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is holding a deer management workshop for landowners and property managers from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 13, at Davisdale Conservation Area (CA). The Sept. 13 workshop is free, but space is limited and participants must register by Sept. 10.

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 Davisdale CA.

Davisdale CA is located in Howard County, 15 miles west of Columbia and seven miles east of Boonville on Hwy. 40.
