Tools of Wildlife Management

Habitat Protection
Acquisition of key habitat areas to provide wildlife habitat into the future.

Habitat Enhancement
Working with landowners to encourage the manipulation of vegetation by burning, controlled grazing, brush control and seeding to provide better food and cover for wildlife.

Surveys & Studies
Estimating populations and how they're doing, surveys are used in setting limits and seasons.

Hunting Laws
Wildlife laws, including game laws, have done much to protect wildlife and the hunting privalege. Game laws provide for:

  • Public Safety
  • Protecting wildlife
  • Sharing wildlife equally

Trap and Transplant
Captured in one area and released in suitable habitat elsewhere

Hunting & Trapping
In many areas the human predator has stepped in to fill the niche left by the disappearance of wild predators. More importantly, hunters support wildlife management with money, time and work.
