A deer plot seminar will be held on Aug. 24 in Luling and will show hunters how to attract whitetail deer. A jambalaya and white beans meal will be served and there will also be a raffle for a gun as well as a 50/50 drawing.

Dr. Don Reed, Professor of Forestry and Wildlife with the LSU Ag Center's Cooperative Extension Service, will present the program on food plot plantings and management of native browse to attract and hold whitetail deer.†
A biologist with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will discuss deer health and hunting regulations, while County Agent David Pichon will discuss the importance of soil testing, how to take a soil sample and what the numbers mean.†
There will also be vendors with educational exhibits and wildlife products for sale. The 4-H Club Program will have a display about the 4-H Shooting Sports Program.†
A jambalaya and white beans meal will be served at the seminar. Donations of $10 will be accepted to help pay for the seminar costs. There will also be a raffle for a gun as well as a 50/50 drawing.†
ďThe seminar is open to the public and will be a great opportunity for deer hunters to learn what to plant and to have their questions answered about problems they may have encountered when planting deer food plots,Ē Pichon said.
The seminar will be held at the VFW Hall on Angus Drive in Luling. Doors will open at 5 p.m. followed with a meal at 6 p.m.†
The program will begin around 7p.m. and there is no pre-registration for the seminar.†
