Animal Euthanasia

This includes food plots, protein feeders, corn feeders, location of feeders, blinds, locations of blinds, herd management, hunter needs, and of course, taking care of the game after it has been shot. Food plots will need to be located in prime areas where the game will have the best opportunity to use them. The locations should be away from busy roads, should be close to cover to ensure security for the game and the wildlife manager should do some scouting in the area to see if there are any signs that the deer are in the area where the food plot is being considered. After deciding on the location, the type of seeds use in the food plot is the next consideration. Using the food plot year round is accomplished with a little work and planning. When deciding on what to plant, the location of the food plot as well as the amount of rain and other factors that may influence the growth of the plants should be taken into consideration. Food plots are generally planted with sunflowers, oats, peas and other forms of seeds that will produce plants that will attract the game. After planting the food plot, it is time to leave it alone and let the plants grow. While the food plot is growing, the wildlife manager has other tasks that need tended to such as placement of deer feeders. The deer feeders will need to be located strategically, as are the food plots. Many of the same criteria will be used for deciding on the location of the deer feeder such as locating trails used by game animals and the distance to safety found in brushy areas.

Plant Conservation Strategy

Best varieties to try: Cultivars known as A. X grandiflora are crossed with downy serviceberry and are among the showiest in spring and fall. These include 'Autumn Brilliance', 'Ballerina', and 'Princess Diana' Dogwood trees are loved for their beautiful spring blooms and manageable size. They are more than a beautiful specimen in the yard or the edge of woodlands. They provide a significant food source for wildlife. The red berries they produce in the autumn are eaten by many species of birds, as well as squirrels and other wildlife. The dogwood tree is also used for shelter. The natural habitat for dogwoods is in the semi shade of larger trees and this is the environment in which they thrive. Their native habitat is the eastern United States from Florida to Maine. The soil would naturally be rich and high in organic material where they naturally grow due to the decomposition of fallen tree leaves. Flowers and fruit: White, pink flowers in the spring with red berries in the fall.
