Things are getting high tech when comes to watching those deer out at the deer blind or out in the fields. Digital cameras have been a big hit out in the field and are proving to be a valuable tool.

Most of the camera systems available to the public today that are suitable for unattended wildlife observation are infrared-activated. These camera systems can be valuable tools used for wildlife management. A special webinar to discuss this topic will be held on August 19, 2010 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. (Central), presented by Billy Higginbotham -Wildlife & Fisheries Specialist, Texas AgriLife Extension Service and hosted by Eric Taylor - Forestry Specialist, Texas AgriLife Extension Service.

Ok, so you say what is a webinar? A webinar is an acronym for web-based seminar. Instead of traveling somewhere to attend a seminar, you meet in a virtual conference room on the internet. Webinars are free from Extension, provide current research and answer today's pressing questions. If you have not yet participated in an Elluminate webinar then please go to www.elluminate.com/support for instructions on setting up your computer. You should do this at least 24 hours in advance of a live webinar. If you have any hardware or software issues, you can call Elluminate Support at 1- 866- 388- 8674.
