Quail/Pheasants Forever plan landowner seminar Saturday

Team Radio Marketing Group - March 2, 2017 1:53 pm

The Cherokee Strip Quail Forever/Pheasants Forever  will host a landowner seminar Saturday in the West Assembly Room at Pioneer Technology Center.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. with speakers starting at 9 a.m. There will be a field trip to the Big Fork Ranch after lunch. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

You do not have  to be a landowner to attend and everyone is welcome. If you aren’t a landowner, invite the landowner on whose land you hunt.

Two winners will be picked at random to receive the use of a skid steer for a weekend (up to eight hours of operation.)

The seminar will have presentations on grazing, burning, wildlife suitable plants species and more.

  • Featured speakers will include:
    John Weir on fire science and seasonal burning;
  • Dwayne Elmore on upland habitat;
  • Derek Wiley on upland biology;
  • Tom Cannon on cover crops, soils and no till;
  • Marty Williams on crop diversity and
  • A NRCS biologist to be determined.

For more information or if you are interested in volunteering with the chapter, please attend the next Cherokee Strip QF/PF meeting, held the second Thursday of each month at Evans and Associates, 3320 N. 14th Street in Ponca City.
