We thought that the last podcast was so good, we simply put it up again!, the audio quality was poor and didn't work well on the platform so we have had it tidied up. 

The third episode of The Australian Deer Podcast was recorded live at the Victorian Hunter Education Course in Neerim, Victoria on 5 May, 2019.

It features The Australian Deer Association Executive Officer Barry Howlett in conversation with the students at the course discussing deer management and the future of hunting. 

This talk marks the conclusion of a very intense three days of learning for the students. 

The powerpoint slides referenced can be viewed on The Australian Deer Association website.
