A series of six meetings in Roberts and Hemphill counties will help producers analyze and evaluate the "big picture" of wildlife before making any management decisions.

"Advanced Topics in Wildlife Management" is a series of educational events and activities designed for producers and landowners in the Texas Panhandle region, as well as eastern Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Panhandle.

"Whether your focus is deer, pronghorn, quail or turkey, this program will offer an opportunity to learn more about factors that influence wildlife populations," said Brandon Dukes, AgriLife Extension agricultural and natural resources agent in Roberts County.

The meetings will be held in the Miami Community Center or the Hemphill County Exhibition Center, as well as in the field observing and analyzing important land management decisions, Dukes said.
