Becoming an Outdoors Woman

Marianne Hudson performs a variety of conservation education duties as the Alabama Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries Division's Conservation Outreach Specialist. She is greatly aware of the importance of hunting and fishing as much more than just fun sports or pastimes--they are critical for conservation efforts as well. To encourage Alabamians to partake in these activities, the state's Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries Division hosts multiple programs each year to provide hands-on instruction on all sorts of outdoor activities in a fun and safe environment. One particular program, Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW), is a three-day workshop specifically designed to equip females with the information and training they need to get in on the outdoor action. Marianne will share information on the BOW program and others like it and why they contribute to wildlife conservation.

Cellular Trail Cameras - Rural Property Security

Mark Olis is the Content Marketing Manager for Moultrie Mobile cellular game cameras. Moultrie Mobile cellular game cameras utilize Verizon or AT&T cellular service to transmit trail camera images from the field to the Moultrie Mobile app on your smartphone. While these cameras have proven great for monitoring game on hunting land, they can also benefit landowners for other uses, such as security cameras. Mark will share what makes Moultrie Mobile cameras a good fit for landowners to remotely monitor their property and share tips on how to get the most out of their use.

The Alabama Feral Swine Control Program

Bence Carter is a Regional Extension Agent for the Alabama Cooperative Extension System(ACES). Many landowners across Alabama are facing issues with feral swine, also commonly known as wild boars or wild pigs. Feral swine can cause a wide range of problems for landowners, including damage to agricultural crops, food plots, pastures, and other natural resources. According to ACES, feral swine cause upwards of $55 million of agricultural damage each year in Alabama alone. To help combat this growing problem, the Alabama Soil and Water Conservation Committee launched a program to help landowners remove feral swine from their property. Bence will explain what landowners need to know about the Feral Swine Control Program, how it benefits landowners, how to know if you qualify, and how to apply.

Timber Market Update

Billy Rye is owner and president of Forest Management Specialists, Inc. (FMS), which has assisted more than 600 landowners in five states with managing their objectives and marketing timber. On July 28, FMS released its latest Timber Market Update, which covered how the combination of a low supply of raw materials at the mill and an increased demand for finished forest products have led to higher stumpage prices for landowners. Billy will share  more details about what's going on in the market and how it affects landowners across the South.
