FLORESVILLE -- Landowners and managers interested in sound, practical, scientifically based wildlife and fisheries management will want to attend one of five meetings scheduled Tuesday, April 23, across the state, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service specialist.

The event will be held locally at the Floresville Event Center, located at 600 W. S.H. 97 in Floresville.

Cost is $25, payable at the door. Those planning to attend should contact Wilson County Extension Agent Bryan Davis by Friday, April 19, by calling 830-393-7357.

Ken Cearley, an AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist in Amarillo, said these important meetings will be handled a little differently -- using electronic resources to get the best speakers to cover the most territory on a single day.

“In this case, instead of three speakers traveling to each of the meeting locations over a period of days or weeks, we will use the latest digital technology to speak to all of the host and surrounding counties at once,” Cearley said. “Audiences will be able to interact with the speakers at the end of each presentation.”

Each meeting will be held from 6-9 p.m., starting with a welcome and introduction, followed by presentations from Cearley; Dr. Dale Rollins, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist at San Angelo; and Dr. Billy Higginbotham, AgriLife Extension wildlife and fisheries specialist at Overton. Topics for the meeting are wildlife nutritional needs, grazing management, pond management, and coping with wild pigs.

Regions of the state represented will be South Texas, Panhandle, Far West, and East Texas. All interested parties from those regions are invited to go to the meeting location closest to them.

Cearley said another meeting in the same counties is planned for the fall, addressing additional topics related to land and water stewardship as it pertains to wildlife needs.

Bryan Davis is the Texas AgriLife Extension Service agent for Wilson County, Agriculture/Natural Resources.
