The Technical Service Biologists (TSBs) work throughout the state helping private landowners and land managers with their wildlife management activities.  Technical Service Biologists (TSBs) can perform a variety of duties on private properties around the state.  One of the most common activities is assisting landowners and hunting clubs with management of their deer herd.  This may involve established programs such as the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) which provides landowners with tags and guidance regarding their deer harvest.  Other landowners simply want advice and suggestions to help them manage their harvest.  Even though deer get a lot of attention, assistance from TSBs is not limited to deer.  Technical service biologists can also help landowners with dove field establishment, management of waterfowl impoundments, forest management, and general habitat management for a wide variety of wildlife.
