The Wildlife Pro Network & Advanced Trap & ACP Animal Control Products
Present Our Second Annual SE Rondi
I am gonna do something different this year and really try to expand on three ideas:
1. Each and every podcast Sunday in Sep and Oct leading up to the event will focus on wildlife control methods, animal handling , animal trapping, site inspection and animal damage repair. These topics will also be included
These podcasts and the Rondi will focus on species commonly found in the South Eastern United States. Its a regional thing and its a big region
The South Atlantic States: Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware
The East South Central States: Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee
The West South Central States: Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas
Some of these species include Alligator, Armadillo, Bat, Beaver, Canada Geese, Coyote, Fox, Flying Squirrels Northern and Southern Fox Squirrel, Gray Squirrel, Iguana, Lizards, Moles, Muskrat, Nutria, Pocket Gopher, Red Wolf, River Otter, Roof Rats Skunks, Snakes, Stinging Insects Including Honey Bees, Wasp and Hornets, Turkey Vultures, Woodchucks, Voles,
2. Provide both formal classroom instruction and hands on training at both the Training Center and possibly selected night time exhibits at the camporee. My Master of Ceremonmies should be no surprise its my good friend and frequent podcast sidekick from Wisconsin Mike Flick
3. For starters its not certified training , not many of us are certified instructors either. But we are wildlife control operators WCO's ; you know us from the podcasts as Ron Jones, Mike Flick, Rick Federation, "Warrior" David McLeod, and each of them will have additional members in the party like employees and FAMILY.
I have FaceBook confirmations in public from Paul Brooker in KY, Chris Bochinno SC, Rick Federation GA, and Gary Parks OK, I have another dozen or so guys from TMAN here that are on the fence. I am planning on 80-100 attending this year we got 56 last year on short notice. We even have a full program this year.
I am trying to keep the costs down but give all of you who want to attend a show worth coming to. We have seating for 100 inside at Moultrie Technical College 800 Veterans' Parkway Moultrie GA. We have plenty of room for both land and Kirk Dekalb's water sets and trap demonstration areas will be closer right outside the classroom this year.
Whats it gonna cost ? Less then $13.50 an hour four a 8 hour day and give you a $40 NWTCP Training Manual and we will feed you a buffet for breakfast or lunch or skip the food and the Training manual this will less then $8 an hour.
Want to Camp with Mike Flick ? Mike said he is bringing his camper and not staying at a motel and I am Mike's host so guess where I will be.
The WCO Camporee will be held starting Friday Night with Our Tail Gate party at Reed Bingham State Park . Want to camp ( we have motels available in Moutrie by the Daytime Training Center and near Adel closer to the campground. ) Learn more about the festivities planned at the Camporee site please contact Bob Brousseau 352-278-5628. We had 32 camp sites left last night. A camp site is for one RV $28 and a car or $25 for two 6 man tents and two cars. We have secured a covered, screened gazebo that will hold 60 people with plenty of electric, rest rooms and water accessible.
