Noble Foundation to host white-tailed deer management seminar
Hunters and landowners can learn about 22 years of whitetail deer
research during the free White-tailed Deer Management Seminar on Saturday,
Sept. 25. The seminar will be hosted by the Noble Foundation at the
Pontotoc Technology Center Auditorium in Ada. It will run from 9 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. and will include lunch. An in-depth afternoon session, from 3:30
to 5:30 p.m. will follow at the Wildlife Unit near Ada.
"This seminar will present information on an essentially free-ranging
deer herd from 20-plus years of research, something you won't find
elsewhere," said Ken Gee, a foundation wildlife specialist. "Much of the
research we've done has management applications."
The program at the Pontotoc Technology Center will cover aging deer by
tooth wear, food habits of whitetail deer in the cross timbers, the
drop-net system for trapping deer, breeding success of deer, use of
infrared-triggered cameras and a presentation on antler development and
doe group dynamics.
Presentations at the Wildlife Unit will be cover infrared-triggered
cameras for deer surveys, food plant identification and diversity and
antler development.
"The session at the Wildlife Unit will be an opportunity to get a
hands-on look at technology such as camera equipment and the drop net
technique," Gee said.
Pre-register for the seminar by calling Melissa Castleman at the Noble
Foundation at (580) 223-5810 by Sept. 19 in order to guarantee a seat.
