Whitetail Deer Articles/Newsletter


The 13th Annual Dr. Deer Field Day will be held at our Research Facility near Trawick, Texas on Saturday, March 3, 2018. This year promises to offer even more developments to help YOU manage your land for better bucks and hunting! 2017 was a year of change for our facility. In order to maintain a sustainable supply of quality deer forage, you often have to disturb your habitats to set them back in succession, and we have done exactly that. Our forested areas have long needed thinning to improve tree and forage growth, so we thinned a substantial portion of the property; as well as, conducted oak management practices to improve acorn production. We also have added new, efficient fencing systems that you can easily apply to managing access of your deer to food plots. As always, weather permitting, we will conduct at least one prescribed burn with your help to show you have easy it is to use this inexpensive way of improving your habitat. We have a list of a dozen topics to be covered at the 13th Annual event. As usual, there will be a barbeque lunch served. To register and to see a schedule of events, click here. There is a family discount, as well as a discount for Dr. Deer Members.
