PERRYVILLE, Mo. – Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wildlife biologists will host a white-tailed deer workshop for landowners Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Perryville Higher Education Center. Kyle Lorenz, MDC private lands conservationist, said the workshop is a great opportunity for landowners to hear tips from wildlife biologists and ask questions about management on their own property.
“Providing the right habitat for deer can greatly increase the odds of successful deer seasons in the future,” Lorenz said.
The workshop will include classroom discussions on basic management techniques of different habitat found in southeast Missouri, food plots, and financial assistance available to landowners. Specific topics are forest and woodland management for white-tailed deer, open land management strategies, and native plants as food plots.
A variety of MDC and Quality Deer Management Association employees will be present to talk with guests throughout the workshop. Space is limited, so registration must be made in advance by Friday, Sept. 9, by calling MDC’s Southeast Regional Office at (573) 290-5730. The Perryville Higher Education Center is located at 108 South Progress Drive.
