Albany  -- A Georgia wildlife conservation organization is urging landowners to better manage their deer population, to keep hunting strong, and the eco-system in the state working in harmony.

Wildlife Steward Kevin Perry with the Quality Deer Management Association told Albany's Rotary Club that landowners must balance the age and sex of deer, and the food habitat to control deer population, while producing older and better trophy animals for hunting.

Perry says knowledge and understanding of wildlife through science will benefit all Georgians.

The number of hunters nationwide is declining dramatically, but Perry says that is not the case for deer hunters in Georgia.
