    The above link will take you to a flyer with a registration slip attached. Unfortunately, the DNR declined to participate in these workshops. I'm working to change the flyer now. However, speakers from Whitetails Forever, the United Sportsman Alliance, and QDMA have agreed to participate to speak about management philosophies.
