Jarred Brooke is an Extension Wildlife Specialist in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. He earned his B.S. in Wildlife Science from Purdue University in 2012 and his M.S. in Wildlife Management from University of Tennessee in 2015. Jarred’s background includes extension and research activities related to applied habitat management for games species including northern bobwhite, eastern wild turkey, and white-tailed deer and work with private landowners interested in habitat management opportunities through USDA Farm Bill programs (CRP, EQIP, and WRE).  His extension programming and research activities at Purdue will focus on habitat management for game species including the use of herbicide and prescribed fire to manage early successional vegetation communities and hardwood savannas, woodlands, and forests. His teaching activities will be focused on the role of hunting in wildlife conservation.
