Topics will include managing forest stands for wildlife and timber, managing for white-tailed deer and game bird species in the Southeast, things to consider when planting food plots and other wildlife plantings, and other principles and applications of wildlife-habitat management techniques.
Wildlife biologists, forestry professionals including consultants and managers, landowners interested in wildlife management, and realtors.
