Recently, the Fredericktown FFA competed in the State Wildlife Management competition at the Ohio Expo Center. This contest is to stimulate and to promote instruction in the areas of fish and wildlife management, as well as to provide recognition for those who have demonstrated skills and competencies as a result of natural resources instruction. In this contest they must take a general knowledge exam, identify 75 specimens (including mammals, game birds, fish, food & cover plants, and equipment), and complete practicum’s in the areas of reading topographical maps, understanding pond management, aging and sexing wildlife, determining habitat management requirements, controlling nuisance animals, and identifying game laws and safety. The Wildlife Management Team took 32nd overall. Fredericktown FFA Adviser is Debra Burden. Those members include (LtoR): Jacob Lotz, Dalton Canter, and Kendra Denton.
