Deer topic for Game & Fish talk in library

KINGMAN - The second-to-last presentation of the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Summer Wildlife Series will be on deer. The program is from 6:30-7:30 p.m. today in the Kingman Mohave County Library, 3269 Burbank.

Tonight's presentation on deer will be followed next Friday with a talk concerning research and wildlife, said Zen Mocarski, information and education program manager in Kingman.

The series is open and free to the public, although seating capacity is limited to 52 and will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

"Deer are an interesting species," said Erin Butler, game specialist in Kingman. "The deer around Kingman are mule deer, although white-tailed deer can be found in other areas of the state."

Butler mentioned how mule deer will conceal their young from potential predators, that older females will often give birth to twins, and they have large ears that can move independently of each other.

Mocarski said he was pleased to see improved attendance at the last presentation, but is waiting to see how much interest there is in the last two talks before making a decision on the fate of the series in 2013.

"The time allotted to conduct these presentations is extensive," he said. "As long as the interest is high, we'd like to continue this educational effort. However, if the interest seems to be waning, we'll need to evaluate if the series should be brought back for a sixth season."

The library and Game and Fish office have schedule cards available. Series information can also be found on the Region 3 Facebook site at

For more information, contact Mocarski at (928) 692-7700, Ext. 2301.
