Deer Damage Management Workshop

Deer Damage Management Workshop

This workshop was offered in 2009.


The Deer Damage Management Workshop is a hands-on experience of the various tools available to manage damage by white-tailed deer. Attendees will be taught by leading experts in deer damage management.

We believe that deer damage management will be a growth industry for the wildlife damage management community. While states have resisted allowing wildlife damage management personnel to handle deer complaints, the numbers have increased to such a level that states may not be able to maintain that position for much longer.

Our Workshop is designed to provide attendees with the information necessary to respond to deer damage management complaints in a responsible and effective fashion.
