ATHENS, GA (September 12, 2016) – Deer season is upon us, and to help hunters get ready, QDMA is holding the Gear Up For Deer online auction containing 50 items including bows, guns, hunting trips, gear, optics, habitat equipment and much more. All auction proceeds will go to support QDMA’s mission of ensuring the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat, and our hunting heritage.
The most valuable auction item is a one-year Platinum Plus Membership to the 7,000-acre Cedar Ridge Plantation in South Carolina, one of best managed, most exclusive hunting clubs in the South. Located in Greenwood County, this 7,000-acre plantation has been under an intensive QDM program for more than a decade and features more than 100 acres of food plots and 120 permanent hunting stands. As evidence of their commitment to wise management, Cedar Ridge has been recognized by QDMA with the “2011 Al Brothers Deer Manager of the Year” award and the “2013 Deer Management Program of the Year.” In addition to deer, Cedar Ridge also offers exceptional hog and turkey hunting as well as world-class dove hunting. The package, valued at more than $8,000, will also include a complimentary registration to QDMA’s Deer Steward I course.
The Gear Up For Deer online auction is now open and will close on Friday, September 30 at 7 p.m. EST.
