Come visit the local testing of food plot materials, management, and temporary deterrents. We’ll discuss all of this as part of a holistic approach to managing habitat  for game species. There will also be opportunities to hear about cost share assistance, learn how to age deer, identify native plants valuable for game species, and get your antlers scored according to the Florida Buck Registry. Lunch and door prizes included!  Specific topics on the agenda include:  wildlife habitat management, nutrient requirements of game species, managing native vegetation, estimating deer age, technical and cost share assistance, food plot fertilization, food plot deterrents, food plot variety selection, native vegetation identification, and Florida Buck Registry scoring (bring your trophy).
