Quality Deer Management School Planned


PRATT, Kan. -- Deer hunters, land managers, and wildlife enthusiasts will have the chance to learn from Kansas’ leading researchers and progressive habitat managers on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The meeting will cover many aspects of deer management including doe and buck harvest, food plots, habitat management, survey techniques for population, antler growth and age structure.

“Our hope is that you use these techniques to improve the health of your wildlife, habitat, and have a better hunting experience,” said Cody Barilla, agricultural and natural resources agent with K-State Research and Extension in Reno County.  

The quality deer management school will be held on the Pratt County Fairgrounds at 81 Lake Rd. in Pratt Kan. The meeting will start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. with a free lunch sponsored by American AgCredit, Hayden Outdoors and Star Seed.
