  • How deer habitat management has evolved over the past few decades
  • If Lindsay could change one thing about deer habitat managers, it would be …
  • Why plant and tree ID matters
  • Does invasive and non-native species management really matter?
  • Desirable weeds and tree species to look for
  • What a “green” or “low impact” food plot means
  • How to plant more environmentally friendly and beneficial food plots
  • Safety considerations and environmental impacts of herbicide use
  • Erosion, tillage, no-till and other soil considerations
