Ready, Aim, Immobilize!

Fish and Wildlife Management students at Haywood have the unique opportunity of taking Dave Dudek's Animal Immobilization class. The only course of its kind offered at a college in the state, students learn about the different chemicals, dosages, equipment, and methods used in animal control and research immobilization practices. Training with blowguns, pistols, and tranquilizer rifles, students receive unique training (and marksmanship!) to safely bring down everything from unwelcome campsite "visitors" to large game for relocation.
