Extension Workshop Goes Beyond Hunting – Farm Progress

September 28, 2012

As the fall deer season approaches, a one-day workshop in Columbia will provide new and experienced hunters a look at topics ranging from the ecology of white-tailed deer to hunting regulations to preparing venison for the dinner table.

Missouri Venison University, Oct. 20 at the University of Missouri, is sponsored by MU Extension, the MU Division of Animal Sciences, the MU School of Natural Resources and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC).

“Hunting white-tailed deer is an extremely popular recreational activity for hunters during the fall, and one of the benefits of harvesting a deer is to have high-quality and nutritious venison to enjoy throughout the year,” said Bob Pierce, MU Extension fisheries and wildlife specialist.
