The Texas deer industry funnels more than $650 million annually into the state economy, and deer enthusiasts are truly off to the races for 2013. The Texas Deer Association announces it will host its first Superior Genetics Deer Auction event on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9, 2013 at Retama Park in Selma, Texas. The event will feature a wildlife workshop, deer auction, industry exhibitors, washer championship and a lot of fun.
Join the Friday Night Kick-Off Party on February 8, 2013 and enjoy the spirited Washer Championship and visit with industry exhibitors, beginning at 6 p.m. On Saturday, February 9th, the event will feature a Purina Wildlife Workshop, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, and the Superior Genetics Deer Auction at 1 p.m.
“The TDA Superior Genetics Deer Auctions always showcase some of the state’s best whitetail and mule deer and we’re excited to host our February event at Retama Park this year,” says Marta Ramos Dennis, director of operations for the Texas Deer Association. “The TDA auction series attract deer breeders from across the country, but hosting both the auction and wildlife workshop at Retama Park is a ‘daily double’ no one should miss.”
The TDA is the only non-profit organization solely committed to improving the quality of Texas deer herds through better habitat practices, modern harvest strategies and use of superior deer to enhance the deer herds. As a part of its public education efforts, the TDA produces a full-color bimonthly publication, Tracks Magazine, which updates TDA members on current industry news, deer genetics and game management issues. The TDA also hosts an annual convention and trade show every August featuring fund-raising auctions, a deer auction, golf tournament and other events.
