The 2nd annual Deer Growers Field Day will be held on April 20 at the headquarters of 4S Wildlife Solutions in Reynolds.

After a highly successful inaugural event last year, 4S Wildlife in Reynolds is ready to do it again—the 2nd annual Deer Growers Field Day will be held on Saturday, April 20.

If you have been wanting to improve your hunting lease or personal property to benefit your deer herd and wildlife in general but aren’t sure what measures you should take, this event can give you the information and offer you the tools needed to realize your management goals.

The Deer Growers Field Day on April 20 will be held at 4S Advanced Wildlife Solutions headquarters located at 3 South Lashley St., Reynolds, GA 31076.

Not only will there be great presentations ranging from wildlife farming to shot placement and wild game cooking, but you could also win a Titan Blind, an All Season Feeder and enjoy a free BBQ lunch. This will truly be a unique opportunity to gain valuable info on anything and everything deer management. The field day will be a “rain or shine” event inside the 4S 80,000-square-foot facility. Come learn from the experts and share ideas with hunters and land managers from across the state. Bring the entire family and plan on staying the entire day—there will be plenty of fun and lots to learn for all ages.

GON will be at the event, so plan to stop by and say hello, renew your subscription, get some decals for the truck or buy a new GON hat. Others who will have booths or displays include The Anatomy Hunter Brian Johnson, Mod Lift X, Tactacam, Pig Brig, Gallagher Fencing and Rans Thomas, HuntPro.
