Trey is a M.S. student in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, being co-advised by Dr. Daniel Hayes and Dr. David Luukkonen. His research consists of looking into factors affecting waterfowl and hunter use of Michigan’s Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas (MWHAs). These areas were first created in the 1960s, with the goal of providing excellent waterfowl habitat and hunting opportunities. Though periodic analyses of monitoring data have helped guide management, it has been a long time since a complete assessment of use has been completed.Trey graduated with is B.S. in Wildlife, Sustainability, and Ecosystem Science from Tarleton State University, in Stephenville, Texas. During his undergraduate career he conducted research on Mottled Duck survival, recovery, and reproductive success on the Texas Gulf Coast. He is currently pursuing a publication through this study. Also, he has previously worked for the Winous Point Marsh Conservancy, in Port Clinton, OH, and for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department at the J.D. Murphree WMA. Trey enjoys most outdoor recreation, but he spends most of his free time waterfowl hunting, playing baseball, and golfing.
