EARTH – Texas AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a multi-county Wild Game Bird Appreciation Workshop from 9 a.m. until noon Sept. 15 at the Old Gin Office north of Earth on U.S. Highway 385.
Participating counties include Parmer, Castro, Lamb and Bailey.
“Like most rural areas of the state, hunting is big business and getting bigger,” said Benji Henderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Parmer County. “And the Texas Panhandle is no exception.
“We’ve asked Ken Cearley, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist at Canyon, to give us some insight on what to expect this coming season, and to offer landowners, managers and hunters the latest management tips to maximize the number and quality of birds as much as is possible on their operations.”
The workshop is free and open to the public.
For more information call Henderson at 806-481-3619 or any of the AgriLife offices in the participating counties.
