At its core, QDMA was founded in 1988 as a group whose primary goal was to conserve the most-hunted and therefore most ecologically- and economically-important game animal in North America – the white-tailed deer. Since, QDMA has and continues to lead the deer conservation realm through the promotion of sound deer and habitat management, as well as enlisting an army of ethical, informed hunters which pursue them.

The hottest thing in QDM. When neighbors work together via Cooperatives, they achieve goals much easier and faster than doing so alone.
Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)
CWD is the largest issue impacting whitetails today. All deer hunters should know how this terrible disease impacts them and how to prevent it from spreading any further.
