Biologist Dr. Grant Woods to Speak at Sportsmen Banquet
A night of discussing whitetail deer habits and habitat with a well-known national expert in itself likely would be enough to fill the Memphis Fire Station to capacity.
But local organizers of the sportsmen banquet set for September 11th didn’t stop there. Guests will be treated to a barbecue dinner and will have the opportunity to win a number of prizes throughout the evening including a deer mount from Brassfield’s Taxidermy and a deep-freeze courtesy of Scott’s Home Center.
Dr. Grant Woods, the developer of renowned Mossy Oak Biologic seed blends, will be the featured speaker for the event. Woods owns and operates Woods and Associates, a private wildlife management group, which specializes in managing whitetail deer populations on a site-specific basis.
Dr. Woods is co-author of Deer Management 101: Manage Your Way to Better Hunting. He is also a regular on television programs such as Dream Season and Wildlife Obsession.
“Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Dr. Woods share his expertise and to visit and discuss with him whitetail hunting strategies and habitat,” said taxidermist Scott Brassfield, one of the event’s sponsors.
Dr. Woods will present a program entitled “0” to 150” Creating a Diamond From the Rough” to help landowners and hunters learn how to manage for trophy whitetail deer.
The event will get underway at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 11th at the Memphis Fire Station. For ticket information contact American Family Insurance at 465-2755 or Brassfield Taxidermy at 465-7754.
Other topics of the forum will include the latest information from the Missouri Department of Conservation on hunting regulations, including the transition to buck antler point restrictions for harvest.
